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.
These earrings bring to mind the ancient carved stairs leading to an equally ancient temple. Constructed of brass, I believe the "bars" to be jasper. Lovely and utterly unique.
