Antique chandelier earrings


About this design:

These are my favorite earrings I have ever made! I used the crystals off of antique chandeliers for the bottom piece. Initially it was a challenge finding these crystals small enough, but once I found two it was like the flood gates opened. They are much lighter than they look and even have a little history from my town! If you guys don't know what I'm talking about in the crystals check this out : http://www.theadamsantiques.com/id78.html

Components:

Crystals, pink faceted and black faceted beads, metal bits

    The stand is cracking me up. I had more people asking about the stand at my craft fair this summer than I did my earrings! I did make the stand on a whim at like 4 in the morning cause I was one stand short for my show the next day. Who knew if would be so popular. They are a stellar repurpose and I am very proud of them!
