Extra special pair of earrings handmade with love in London, UK using reclaimed vintage beads and materials ❤️
I sourced these incredible art deco glass beads last year in Paris. This shop bought the stock of a haberdashery that closed down in the 1930s, so these beads are from the 1930s or earlier! The peach flower beads are frosted glass and etched, while the “stem” beads are twisted solid glass in a gorgeous pastel green hue.
Materials: Vintage glass beads in peach pink and pastel green from the 1930s or earlier, vintage 1950s pale green rhinestones made in Western Germany, new hypoallergenic steel ear posts, new 14K gold-filled butterfly backs
Of note: These glass beads are more or less 100 years old and show a few nicks consistent with their age. They’re still gorgeous though! Please study photos closely to gauge for yourself :)
