Something old is new again, and oh how I wish it was me!
The ivory colored beads used for these pretty earrings were rescued from what I refer to as a "butt ugly" necklace I found in a box of junk at a garage sale. You know what they say. "One man's trash is another man's treasure." That sure holds true for these. The beads are very old plastic. They might even be Bakelite, I'm not sure. They had ugly red centers that had faded and run. I was afraid the beads wouldn't be salvagable, but they cleaned up beautifully.
