I've been on an earring making kick lately - most of them are dangly and sparkly - made with new and old beads - each pair has at least one vintage bead from a necklace, bracelet, or clip on earring found in an antique shop

I really hope that my sewing projects or accessories bring JOY to those who appreciate the BEAUTY of vintage materials!

Thanks soooo much for visiting my Etsy shop!
