Recycled Jewelry Brooch

Instead of throwing away a single earring because you lost one or getting rid of broken necklaces and bracelets, use what is left to create one-of-a-kind pins.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes


  • jewelry findings
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks or E6000 glue
  • wire cutters
  • pin back
  • piece of cardboard (optional)


Cut the post or clip from back of earrings and disassemble broken jewelry.

Lay pieces out until you get them in a pleasing design that suits you.

Carefully lift each piece and apply glue to hold in place.

When glue is dry, turn piece over and glue on a pin back. (If necessary, you can use a piece of cardboard as a base for your design.)
