I will donate 15% of proceeds from these earrings to Doctors Without Borders, perhaps the most important international health crisis organization. This organization is finally getting the attention it has long deserved as its volunteers are on the front line, assisting refugees on the Syrian border and fighting the ebola crisis in Western Africa. But they're saving lives all over the world, every day, wherever help is needed. I'll be posting information about this amazing organization on my shop's front page and Facebook page; in the mean time, visit www.doctorswithoutborders.org.


This is a gorgeous one-of-a-kind pair of earrings that is great for every single day of the year, and for every occasion, from winter holiday parties to spring picnics and summer weddings. They're super-light and comfy, great with old jeans or elegant dresses. And they're "green" earrings, with every piece except the headpin and ear wires recycled/vintage. Eco-chic at its best!

The centerpiece beads here are 14mm champagne-gold vintage lucite rounded crackle cubes, which seem to glimmer from within. They're topped with wavy brass disks, atop of which shine stunning purple-red crystals: These are richly colored, something like a ruby garnet, with opalescent luster on the top. Small vintage gold filigree flower spacers (from a necklace that belonged to my grandmother) cap the crystals, and accent vintage/antique pearly geometric shell beads, which come from a very old necklace that also belonged to my grandmother (it's old enough that my mom doesn't remember a time when Wilmama didn't have it. Recycled/repurposed gold balls (from a very old necklace finish the earrings on top.

The earrings measure 1" bead-to-bead, and they hang just a smidge over 1-1/2 inches from antiqued brass ear wires (nickel-free & lead-free).*

Your earrings will be accompanied by a handmade card that describes the the beads and wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request; be sure to include all pertinent details (including occasion) at checkout.

*If you'd like a different type of ear wire, drop me a line prior to ordering. Leverbacks are favorites, as they clip closed so they don't get lost easily. I have a wide variety of styles in all sorts of metals (copper, brass, sterling silver, 14k gold-filled, etc.). A small charge may apply for some styles.
