I made these lovely earrings by combining vintage sugar beads with repurposed light sapphire rhinestones. These delightful beads were made circa 1950s-60s and sourced from old warehouse stock. I have finished them with Sterling Silver hooks.
These earrings measure about 3.8 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop. The soft blue rhinestones are very reflective, which made it hard to photograph them without reflections from my camera.
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.
