Vintage Reworked Earrings

I came across these earrings recently and loved their vintage character. Many of you are probably familiar with the talented designer who made these earrings, Barbe St. John, of the Etsy shop, "Saints & Sinners". On this site, her work is titled, "New Treasures from Forgotten Artifacts". It's great to see these miscellaneous pieces and parts find new lives in her fun and creative jewelry!

I am a huge fan of treasure hunting through flea markets, garage sales and antique shops and always stop when I come across jewelry boxes!! However, recycling vintage jewelry items has never been my strong suit which is probably why I am in awe of people who have this kind of creative vision!

The description on these earrings reads:
Vintage Reworked Earrings - This pretty pair of earrings is glamourous enough to wear on your wedding day or anytime you want to feel extra feminine. Vintage enamel floral pieces with vintage pink faux pearls and rhinestone beads hang on 14kt GF earwires. These are just shy of 1 1/2 inches long. One of a kind and can not be duplicated.

Very cool! My thanks to Barbe for allowing me to post these!!

By the way, you might also recognize Barbe St. John as the jewelry making editor of the Craft Gossip Blog Network. You can catch up with the work she is doing on any of the sites below. Have a great weekend everyone!!
