These kooky little earrings are a bit of contradiction in that they have this spacey, atomic style but they are simply constructed: domes of cork with sequins and bugle beads held in place with tiny pins and glue. I don't know if this is something you could have bought at the store or if this is a do-it-yourself type of thing, but the earrings are well made. They measure about 1" in diameter.

Condition is very good overall. The silvertone screwback hardware functions perfectly and is still quite clean. Some of the sequins have what to my eyes looks like discoloration or oxidation, possibly from exposure to moisture, although the cork looks just fine. The beads that are clear look a little dingy in spots, but there isn't much you can do about that short of pulling out the pins and replacing them (but why?). These earrings are still really cute, unusual, and totally wearable.
