I made these earrings with some vintage Czech glass beads which I purchased in a Prague flea market. They are cobalt blue glass with an iridescent coating on one side made around the 1960s-70s. I used vintage brass head pins and gold toned connectors repurposed from vintage clip back earrings to finish them.
I have made my hooks from brass wire, which is said to have a very low allergy potential. The earrings measure approximately 4 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the flower
Sustainably made, these earrings contain vintage and repurposed 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.
Handmade in Australia.
