These striking earrings have been made by upcycling vintage screw-back earrings dating from about the late 1940s. I call it upcycling as they have been converted from one form of earring to another that is more comfortable to wear.
The lovely brass stampings set with faux seed pearls and a central pearl are highlighted by a black and gold toned base. I have handmade the French hooks using tarnish resistant brass.
These earrings measure 4.2 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop.
These earrings have been lovingly made with some vintage 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.
