Description

It is impossible for me to look at these earrings without smiling. Not sure if it is the jelly bean size and shape or the luscious cherry color that makes me so happy. The cherry jelly beans are vintage Lucite moonglow – uncirculated or new old stock.

The earrings feature sixteen cherry jelly beans wire wrapped with sterling silver to the sturdy but delicate black plastic chain. As with most of my designs these earrings are incredibly lightweight. Yet just heavy enough for a gentle sway as you move.

Lucite, introduced by DuPont in 1937, was cheaper to produce and therefore often replaced Bakelite for use in costume jewelry by the early 1940's. The 'moonglow' style of Lucite is very recognizable by the 'glow' that it has and is now considered quite collectible.

Quality plastic chain with delicate links and a nod to Bakelite is a rare find. It is the pairing of sterling silver, vintage Lucite moonglow and plastic chain that engenders the whimsy in these earrings.

If you are one who tends to lose earrings while wearing them, leverbacks are a great alternative to traditional ear wires. They cost a bit more but so worth it... can't count the number of single earrings I accumulated before discovering the value of the leverback.

If you see a pair of earrings you like but would prefer a different earring back (leverback or ear wire) just let me know.

The earrings are 2" long. All findings are sterling silver.
