space odyssey

Check out the super-cool earrings I made with my "new" vintage springy charms! They're just wonderful! 


Vintage brass springs with free-floating copper-plated hollow lucite beads inside, they're topped with earthy olive green porcelain balls with brown speckled, and finished with super-shimmery copper stardust beads.  They hang from Betty Brite's hand-crafted flattened 14k gold-filled angular ear wires. SO cool! 


These earrings include double-looped spring beads, so I've hung astronaut charms beneath, and topped them with beautiful blue & green balls of malachite/lapis. The astronaut charms feature vintage bronze astronaut charms, vintage brass rings, copper bicones, and vintage teal/aqua Czech glass saucers. The earrings are light as can be and FULL of movement.
