Statement single earrings are on trend at the moment so I decided to upcycle an orphaned vintage pearl bead earring into a single earring!
I have combined a loop from a vintage necklace, an interesting bead from a 1960s necklace and a lovely faux pearl drop in this statement earring. The pearl bead probably dates from the 1980s and still has a beautiful finish (you can see my camera reflected on its surface).
It measure 7.3 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop and is suspended from a 14 carat Gold Filled hook.
Sustainably made in my Melbourne workshop, this earring contain vintage and repurposed materials which may show some wear and a darkened patina associated with their age. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
