Make Wire Jewelry with Clothespins

I have been known to tear apart clothespins to use the wooden bits for various projects. But what about the metal spring part? Mine usually end up in the recycling bin – but not anymore! The ever-so-clever Michelle from Mich L. in L.A. was playing around with them recently and came up with a delightful jewelry design. The best part? No tools required! (Seriously!)
