My dear friend Gunda is a world-traveler who truly remembers just about every part of every city she's visited, and every treasure she's picked up along the way -- and has fascinating tales to tell about both. A visit to her home is like a behind-the-scenes tour of a world-class museum where I'm often lucky enough to leave the "gift shop" with a bag of extraordinary baubles. At my last visit, she gave me a bountiful gift, dozens of dozens of beads that range from African trade beads to Balian silver to her mother's antique crystals. The beads at hand here are richly colored, super-sparkly, absolutely beautiful antique crystals in hot pink. They're treasures of the finest sort: They belonged to Gunda's mother -- an amazing woman much like her fabulous daughter.*

The earrings I've created from these stunning crystals are lively and bright, festive and joyous -- They're perfect for every season and every occasion. The centerpiece 10mm vintage crystals are bright hot pink -- certainly not an old-fashioned color -- with large, sharply-cut facets, and aurora borealis mirroring on one side. Balanced on top of the crystals are corrugated sterling silver saucer beads (4mm), which are crowned by super-sparkly 6mm clear crystal rings. Small (4mm) textured vintage opalite balls nestle into the rings, and tiny (1.5mm) rounded cubes finish the earrings on top.

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure 3/4". They hang 1-1/2 inches from sterling silver shepherd wires with ball detail.**

Your earrings will arrive ready for gift-giving in gift box & organza bag (if you prefer reduced / recycled packaging, let me know) accompanied by a handmade card that describes the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request; be sure to include pertinent details (including occasion) in Notes to Seller at checkout.

*We're not sure of the age of the vintage crystals in these earrings, but I've worked with similar beads that were from the 1940s-50s, and Gunda's pretty sure that's when her mother wore them..

**Your ear wires can be changed upon request. Please convo me prior to ordering.
