These elegant vintage pearl hoops have been repurposed from vintage screw-back earrings. The screws were signed Barclay, a company that operated in the USA between 1946 and 1957. I date them to the early to mid 1950s.
These earrings are:
- ethically and sustainably made
- one of a kind
- made from 1950s vintage earrings
- 4.5 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop and 2.5 cm at the widest point
- Finished with 14 carat gold filled hooks
Sustainably made in my Melbourne workshop, these earrings contain vintage materials which show signs of their age in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
