    These have a very organic feeling to them – - and I agree that earrings should move and maybe make a little noise, too !

    Me three…. :) I love clunky earrings now. When I wore things I liked when I was yough, I was assumed to be strange, now that I’m old, I’m eccentric. I like eccentric. ;)

    Those earrings do look as though they were created in ancient times. Interesting combination of blues and creamy white pearls and little yellow bead. Makes me think of a small piece of sunshine popping out from those ancient times, connecting us from then to now. Cool!!

    Thank you!
    I definitely like jewelry that’s a bit eccentric, or a bit tribal or exotic!

    Wonderful antique look. Love ‘em! :)

    What’s not to like about jewelry that is eccentric, tribal and/or exotic? It’s lots of fun to wear as well as fun to make. :D
