Fancy paper clip bracelet

   Long back I picked up a little bag of fancy paper clips. I wasn’t sure what I would do with them, but for some reason I just had to have them.
   Yes, these fancy swirly things are paper clips.
   I played with these little clips for a while before I settled on a way to use them in handmade jewelry.
   I used craft wire and beads to connect each piece until I had a length that would work as a bracelet. I then used jump rings to connect the clasp on each end.
   I was so pleased with how the bracelet turned out that I decided to make a pair of matching earrings.
