Artsy Fartsy Jewelry
I have been experimenting with creating some fun earrings made from vintage plastic flower beads! I really like them and think they look cute! The wires are silver plated kidney ear wires, and the flowers are linked together with silver plated wire as well. I think these flowers were popular in jewelry in the 1950s and 1960s, but I don't know for sure. You can find a whole bunch on Etsy, often in bulk, for reasonable prices and in a wide array of colors and styles! I love the bright colors, affordability and vintage fabulousness! You just can't go wrong. I have them listed on my Etsy store now, so check them out soon!
