Leftovers Again?

When I was cleaning out my closet, I basically found a time capsule.
Jewelry. From the 80's.
Did you own any of this?
The pink rectangular stones are about an inch and a half long,
and one is missing the post.
So what do you do with 30 year old relics?
Oh...I have an idea.

Grab a little waterproof Goop while you're at it.
Remove the spring part under your french clip and break off the remaining post on the other earring.
Glue the gem to the center of the clip.
  Add more gems or beads to fill in the top of the clip.
Allow this to dry, then replace the spring portion.
Find yourself a hair model.
Yeah, this isn't going to work.
I found some silky, flowing blonde hair to demonstrate the product on...
...but he wasn't overly pleased with being used.
 
Aha! I have spotted my victim, and she is helpless to refuse!
Why helpless, you ask?
We don't own a gun, and her bow is nowhere nearby!
Sit still, little one.
Glitzy but not overtly so, the glue makes this beach worthy.
I like that my favorite earrings from my young and crazy days now have new life.
Let's pack a bag and look recycled fabulous on the sand, shall we?

I agree, glitzy but not over the top - perfect! Your minions are ever the sweetest and the best sports.
