Our dear friend Jeanette gifted me with a amazing collection of gorgeous beads, which range from her own family heirlooms to souvenirs from her world travels.These earrings' absolutely fabulous centerpiece orange glass beads are among my very favorite beads of all time, and this is one pair of earrings that I just may have to keep for myself if someone doesn't snatch it up soon. The combination of colors, texture, and sparkles makes me think of the razzle-dazzle of a carnival ~ a nod to Jeanette's David, a carny-dude from way back. >A bonus: All the glass & crystal beads in these earrings are vintage and/or recycled, so these are eco-treasures to boot!< These earrings are unique and versatile, transcending trends so they'll never be out of style. A one-of-a-kind pair of earrings for a one-of-a-kind woman (or girl)!

Be sure to check out every picture here; the amazing orange centerpiece beads are hard to describe and impossible not to love: Vintage depression glass (we think), they're corner-drilled rounded cubes, nearly (~20mm across), with ridges in the side, a seam at the middle, and what looks like wear around the edges (that makes them all the cooler -- I promise!--and no two peices are alike). Their color is a clear, pure, brightest tangerine orange. They balance upon 3mm sterling silver balls, while 7mm vintage opaque turquoise Czech glass tubes hug their tops. Vintage 6mm crimson glass balls w aurora borealis mirroring nestle into the tops of the turquoise beads, and vintage olive-green crystal bicone beads (5mm) mirror the shapes of the orange beads at the bottom. The earrings are finished on top with 2mm sterling silver balls.

> Please note that the earrings pictured incorporate some silver-plated metal beads. I will be re-stringing the earrings before sending them to you, and replacing the corrugated metal beads and all other non-sterling beads with sterling UNLESS you request otherwise. This will extend the life and brightness of the earrings immensely.

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure a little under 1-1/2". From the top of the sterling silver "leaf" ear wire, they hang about 2.2 inches long.*

I will send your earrings in a gift box and organza gift bag, unless you request recycled/reduced packaging, accompanied by a card that describes the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request, and I am happy to mail your present directly to the recipient, accompanied by your personal note on a special card. Be sure to include pertinent details (e.g. mailing address, message, etc.) at checkout.

*If you'd like a different type of ear wire, drop me a note prior to purchase.
