I LOVE these earrings. The color combination is just perfect. I made the sterling chain. Oxidized and brushed it. Made the headpins, too. the red bead came from a strand of vintage glass that also included flowers and pod shaped beads. I love the idea of using every single thing you have. Leaving nothing out. Making your own headpins, using every last bead on a strand for something. That's why I never throw anything away. i know myself well enough to realize that even if I may not love it then, in 6 months I'll discover this box of beads or stones or charms and know exactly what to do with them.
