I made these lovely earrings by combining links from a vintage Avon necklace with Black Onyx drops and vintage brass headpins. I have finished them with 14 K Gold Filled hooks.
Black Onyx is a semi-precious stone said to encourage happiness and good fortune, and provide inner strength to the wearer.
These earrings measure about 4 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop.
Sustainably made in Australia with vintage material which may hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
