Most of our jewelry is hand-made by individual artists, but occasionally a fellow believer in the value of all creatures donates all or part of his or her collection. I have received just such a collection of light-hearted and fun, vintage and retro, costume and better. Over the next few weeks I'll be going through, repairing, cleaning, and listing so that these pieces that have brought so much joy can repeat that process timelessly.
Sterling silver with inlays of black; I cannot be certain what the "black" is without damaging the earrings, but my best guess is that it is enameled. The photos of these earrings say it all--the are simple, yet chic, short ear hoops.
