I made these limited edition earrings by upcycling some lovely vintage plastic white and red beads from a 1950s necklace. The large beads are in the form of a tulip flower. I have combined them with vintage style connectors made in the USA on vintage equipment.
These earrings are:
- ethically and sustainably made
- limited edition
- made with repurposed 1950s plastic beads and vintage style connectors
- 4.2 cm from the top of the hook to the base of the drop
- Finished with 14 carat Gold Filled hooks
Handmade in my Melbourne workshop, these earrings contain vintage repurposed materials which show signs of their age in a deepened patina and minor wear. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
