I made these earrings with some beautiful vintage Czechoslovakian made iris glass rhinestones that I purchased in Prague several years ago. Iris glass is clear glass with a rainbow of stripes running through it.
These earrings are modelled on a design often used from the 1940s through to the 1960s and will swing beautifully as you move.
These earrings are:
- ethically and sustainably made
- limited edition
- made with vintage Czechoslovakian unfoiled rhinestones circa 1960s and vintage brass chain
- 3.8 cm in length
- Suspended on 14 carat gold filled hooks
These earrings have been made in my Melbourne workshop with 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.
