An Item A Day - Day 4

Sterling, Swarovski, and VIntage Bead Earrings in White and Blue

This pair of earrings is really an Ugly Ducking story.   Years ago I found a necklace made of the white beads shown and some bright pink of the same shape and size.  It was truely ugly, at least in my book.  I took it apart and saved the beads hoping some day I'd find a use for them.  They're not quite round.  They are more of an oval shape and fit in with just about nothing I ever made.    I had also aquired some filigree beads that don't fit any beads I have.  Ah - except for these!  I put them all together and here is the result.  The pink beads also made pretty earrings.  They can be seen here: Sterling, Swarovski, and Vintage Bead Earrings in Pink

Oooooh those are beautiful earrings. I'm off to see how much they are. I'd love those for my upcoming birthday! You did a wonderful job and you know that when you save beads they will somehow find themselves made into something wonderful later.
