A Garage Sale Find and a Key Fob

I found this cute little broach and earrings at a garage sale. At first I only bought the broach because I didn't want clip on earrings. I wouldn't know what to do with them. Then as I sat there and looked at some other stuff I got an awesome idea. Why not take the backs off of the earrings and make something else out of them? So, I bought the earrings and what I plan to do is make one of the earrings into a ring and the other a hair bobby. I'm a little excited to be doing it but I have to find the rings first. Kind of bummed that the local craft store doesn't have them and the bead store went out of business. I guess I'll have to buy online.
I have been wanting to make myself a key fob for forever and I finally did it. Actually I did make one a couple months back but I had it attached to something that wasn't holding. This time I just got something from the purse making section and sewed it onto that. I think it turned out pretty cute. It's nice and bright so that I can see it in the depth of darkness I call my purse.

I love the broach and earrings. It reminds me of some of my great grandmother's. I wonder if I could do the same thing to some of hers? Thanks for the idea!
