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.
If you look carefully at the photo after enlarging, you can see the carvings around the oval "ropes" which give these earrings a unique bit of sparkle. The copper ovals are connected to turquoise-colored beads, rhondelles and saucers that likewise are patterned. Antiqued copper throughout.
