These are lovely and just a bit different in the way they are constructed.

These vintage velvet millinery flowers date to the 30’s or 40’s and are in wonderful condition. The center of the flower is covered in dozens of little nonpareil – looking things that I remember from my Grandmothers hats. (Where does that word come from – nonpareil?)

Each flower came on a wired stem wrapped in a bit of twisted silk. I have looped a bit of this wire through and around the “eye” on the earring hook. This is then covered with the strip of silk originally covering the stem. I secured with a tiny little stitch and just a bit of glue. (See 3rd picture.)

Together these earrings weigh less than 10 grams. Very light weight and look like you are wearing stylish "clip-ons".

ECO-FRIENDLY: Why is this product eco-friendly or “green”?
First, by using materials that were destined to be discarded, repurposing them, we keep them out of the landfill. Second, by creating products from existing materials, we reduce the demand for the production of new materials, which reduces the energy used, natural resources consumed and waste products and often pollutants generated by the manufacturing processes … reducing the carbon footprint of the product.
COMBINED AND ALTERNATE SHIPPING

Shipping costs listed are for USPS First Class Mail. If you desire an alternate shipping method, please contact us BEFORE paying and we can alter your invoice.

We are happy to combine items for shipping to reduce shipping costs, just get in touch with us before you pay so we can calculate the charge for the specific additional items. For some combinations, there is no additional charge. But say you bought this pair of earrings and added an embellished bowling ball (which we haven't ever made ... yet), there would be an upcharge in shipping.
