A few items did not sell, and one was these earrings with headpins by Crows Cache Supplies.
My mom and I said these were a favorite! So we decided to split them up, take off the ear wires, and now they are little pendants!
I thought I would knot mine with some vintage glass. At first I thought white because I never met a vintage white bead I didn’t like. But the white on the ceramic is a bit of an off white, so I thought that might not be a good match. I thought maybe I would have some red, but while looking, I spotted my box of vintage pearls. I had a bag of vintage semi-matte glass pearls that are an off white. The pearls are a bit rustic looking and peely, so I thought those would be a good fit.
I also added two weenie lampwork beads from Uglibeads, which is no more, so I use those sparingly. BUT, the artist, Jules Sontag, has a new site where she teaches and does metalwork, so check that out. I knotted this on red waxed linen. I thought about choosing a silver or gunmetal clasp, but went with another pop of red at the back with this box clasp.
This was a fun little project, and I get to keep one of these pretty pendants, plus I have two handmade sterling ear wires in my stash! It will be fun to see what my mom does with her pendant.
Stay safe and creative!
