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.
Reminiscent of ornate carved columns, these graceful earrings have a slight swing and shimmer when they adorn your ears. The patterns are more complex than usually seen in earrings and are likely constructed of carefully stamped metal rolled into shape with tiny beads added at the top and bottom.
