Re-gifting and Repurposing Earrings
Re-gifting and Re-purposing Earrings
Some people might consider re-gifting—the act of taking of an unwanted gift given to you by a friend or family member and giving it to another person— as a despicable act. I, on the other hand, do not, if you re-purpose that gift. How do you re-purpose a gift, such as these earrings, for re-gifting? I’ll show you.
My daughter gave me a pair of earrings once. They had been a gift to her from a friend, but she didn’t care for them. They were a bit gaudy and too heavy for her ears, so she gave them to me. They weren’t much better for me, but I never look a re-gifting in the mouth—or something like that. All I had to do was re-purpose those earrings, so that I could use them or in my case re-gift them.
I took the earrings apart. There were five beads to each one—five pairs of different beads.

So, now I had all these beads which I paired off. I then rummaged through my jewelry box for some stray earring hooks and I made five sets of earrings out of one. Nifty, huh?
Five out of one!
Of course, I’m still missing a couple of hooks, but those are easily found at any craft store like Michaels and soon I will have five pairs of earrings to either keep for myself of re-gift. Although, I have a sneaking suspicion my daughter may decide to un-re-gift them from me to herself… if she finds out what I did, that is. Don’t give me away, okay?
