I love the patina that these vintage, what used to be screw-back earrings, have earned over time. I am so glad that they found me to give them new life!
Even though they are worn from age & exposure to the elements they are still so pretty. Through it all not one stone was missing; certainly heirloom quality & craftsmanship from back in the day.
I found these these the perfect opportunity to re-create & take to the next level; as due to their found condition, they did not hold much “vintage" value.
I removed the screw back components & added ear wires. I attached beautiful round deco style dimensional vintage solid brass stampings & added gorgeous vintage Swarovski jewel tone vitrail crystal coin bead drops. Finally, I dressed up the backs with some filigree & flash for the perfect finishing touch.
The colors are subtle rich pastels with flashes of jewel tone. The patina allows them to retain just a bit of personality from a bygone era.
They are really special; perfectly imperfect - just like you & I.
