NOTICE: Lucy is currently a patient at UCLA's Pediatric Pain Program, which treats complex chronic pain in children -- infants through young adults -- with a multi-disciplinary approach that combines traditional Western Medicine with "alternative" mind/body services, including hypnotheraphy, yoga, biofeedback, and acupuncture. Through the spring (May 30), we'll be contributing proceeds (at least 20%) to the Pain Program's Scholarship Program: The alternative services are VERY expensive and generally not covered by insurance. While Lucy is making remarkable progress with her non-traditional therapies, it is nothing short of tragic that so many children must continue to live with debilitating pain, their families unable to take advantage of these ground-breaking programs, simply because of EXORBITANT costs. Thank you for your support!

In the last couple of years I've found myself yearning for moon shine and meteor showers --- I long to get out of this sprawling city, where nights are long and cool with clear eye and endless starscapes. When I found these wonderful rocket charms, my musings found an outlet, resulting in these cool-as-can-be, long, dramatic earrings. Even if you're not in to rockets or space travel, you'll get the appeal of these earrings: Beyond being space-inspired, they're beautiful, sculptural, elegant, and absolutely one-of-a-kind -- mesmerizing sculptures for your ears!

Part of the appeal of these earrings is also the beautiful layering of vintage beads -- metal, resin, and lucite. Each of the beads has had a previous life, but this incarnation is a totally contemporary and chic one! Vintage lucite beads that could easily pass as rich amber or glowing carnelian (12mm) sit center, with stacks of space-y stars and planets: From top to bottom, 3mm black metal rings nestled between tiny (2mm) gold & copper beads sit cradled in perfectly planetary vintage resin saucers (13mm across), gorgeous with concentric copper circles.* Below the saucers, (2mm) copper beads and rings (3mm) balance upon gold saucers, and sit just right on the "carnelian" planets. >> Please note that the lucite balls are smooth coppery red; some of the photos show specks of pollen and moss that don't appear on the earrings in person.

Beneath the planetary towers hang sleek antiqued bronze rockets (1" long -- I believe they're vintage), tying the whole universe together, just as perfectly as we wish it could be.

Bead-to-bead, these long, dangly earrings measure 2 inches. They hang 2-1/2" from antiqued bronze leverback ear wires.** Despite their length, these unique and lovely earrings are comfortably light and tremendously magical!

Your earrings will be accompanied by a handmade card that describes the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request, and we are happy to mail your present directly to the recipient, accompanied by your personal note on a handmade card.

*Judging from the necklace from which I took the saucers, these saucers are likely from the 1940s-50s; each one has a tiny nick on it. Visible in the second photo, I think you'll agree that they don't detract from the beauty of the earrings at all. In fact, much of the charm of owning a vintage piece can be the little signs of love that its previous owners have left behind...

**We offer many different ear wires, including a wonderful variety of handcrafted modern wires. Please convo us prior to ordering if you'd like a different type of hook. A small charge may apply for some styles.
