Stunning Old Beauties...

Hello my friends! I am sharing some of my wonderful earring finds with you in today's post. I have a serious passion for old, beautiful earrings and never, ever can I turn a gorgeous pair down when I see them. The attention to detail and quality is always apparent in these delicate old beauties, and I truly LOVE those features. Here are some of my latest acquisitions, soon to be turned to pierced vintage earring treasures for my Etsy shop....



Gotta have the old Deco rhinestones...


The old screwbacks seem to always be the most delicate and detailed...



Sweet, old birds made with real feathers. Hard to imagine how someone put these tiny things together...



Gorgeous, old Victorian mother of pearl screwbacks...




Look at these fabulous signed pieces! The jewelry gods were smiling on me when I found these pretty Hattie Carnegie earrings...





One of my favorite old earring  makers, the jewelry house of Sandor....



These are sooooo Marie Antoinette! Don't ya think????


Creations with these gorgeous old things coming soon....stay tuned!
Have a beautiful week mes amis!!!!

Wow! You did find some treasures. There was an estate sale listed that had lot of jewelry, but I just did not want to deal with the heat - I am slipping. :D
Have a great week.

You always have such a good eye - I especially love those little feathered birds! Can't wait to see your assemblage designs with these beauties. PS - You can come over for tea and crumpets anytime! :) Robyn
