 With the holiday tomorrow , i thought I would share some autumnal themed earrings ...in peachy  pink ...but still autumnal themed.
(and  if you note...yet another use for the crappy labradorite I got from ebay! )





~~ acorns made with vintage, recycled/re-purposed peachy glass beads with antiqued copper caps ,  vintage pressed leaves in antiqued brass , also accented with faceted pink quartz , moss green labradorite briolettes , clear window pane beads framed in antique brass foiling,  all on  antiqued brass findings.


Thanks for looking!

I love them! It's really cool that you made the acorns, I would have thought that they just came like that  Cheesy

those little acorn caps are pretty much the cutest things ever!  does
"antiqued copper" mean that they are something you purchased new and might still be available, or are they actually vintage?
it's a lovely piece!  Smiley

I've seen some of your other jewelry around here earlier but never commented because I didn't have time, but I just have to say: all of it is amazing!  Grin

I normally don't wear jewelry much, escpecially dangly earrings, but I would totally wear yours! Very VERY beautiful!!!!

They are great! I'm glad you've been able to use up the junk you got from eBay, that guy was a real rip-off.
