Shiny copper provides a stunning framework for three dark teal vintage glass beads, an oval sparkling pearlescent vintage glass bead, and a round vintage pearlescent dangle. All the beads have been reclaimed from broken vintage jewelry. The copper will patina to a darker color, setting off the pearly beads even more as time goes by. The beads are anchored to the thicker copper framework with a delicate wire-wrapped technique, making for a unique, handmade item.
These elegant earrings measure 1.75" long and 1" wide, and are light enough for everyday wear with a comfortable ear wire.
What better way to keep our planet healthy than to repurpose beautiful old jewelry?
