I made these 1920's inspired earrings using black semi-precious onyx drops, filigree connectors made on antique machinery with added vintage brass bead caps and head pins.
Black onyx is said to encourage happiness and good fortune.
They measure 5.8 cm in length and are finished with hooks handmade from tarnish resistant brass. The filigree measures 2.5 cm in length.
Sustainably made in Australia, they contain vintage materials which hold evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
