These earrings feature vintage Japanese jade green glass stones and beads made in post-war Japan for the US jewellery manufacturing industry. I have mounted the floral stones in lace edged settings sourced from old warehouse stock, and suspended these from vintage brass chain.

- made from vintage glass stones and beads c.1940s-50s , vintage chain c.1970s

These earrings have been made in my Melbourne workshop with materials which hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
