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.
A romance design of molded glass beads in ruby and dashed aged pink and white, surrounding lovely hearts of antiqued gold and red. They are long, at 2.5 inches, but "oh so delicate" making a soft dangle of antique elegance. Copper ear wires, with three tiny copper "berries" allow them to sway.
