An Item A Day - Day 30

It's day 30, and the last day of my self challenge.  Can you believe I made it?  30 days straight with a new item every day.  Sure wish I could say I've sold them all! LOL  Oh well, it's been fun.  I have a ton of new stuff on Etsy and ready for Cross Roads when we open in May.   Tomorrow starts my "vacation".  I will still be working, just not at home.  Grandpa and I are off to baby-sit our Grandson while his other grandparents are on vacation in sunny Florida.  I will be taking along some projects AND there is a terrific bead store near where my kids live!   There are some perks to this trip besides getting to be Granny for a week!

Today's item is a remake of one of my favorite styles.  Vintage faux pearls salvaged from an old necklace make it special.  I hate throwing anything away that can be given new life!  I'm still trying to figure out what I can make from all the empty coffee whitener bottles we collect.   Can't make jewelry out of them.  Or can I????

Recycled vintage white glass pearls are the focal point of these Victorian style earrings.

10 mm pearls mounted with antique gold tone filigree "petals". Blue color matched Swarovski crystals sparkle on both the top and the bottom.

Hanging from Gold plated ear wires French ear wires. 

Dangle length is 1 1/8" or 27 mm.
