The vintage acrylic beads in these earrings were moulded in West Germany sometime in the 1950s.
They have a marbled effect and a slight glitter to them that gives them a velvety look.
I've used 3/4-inch diameter coin-shaped beads and 1-1/8-inch long tapered drops with pewter bead caps, plus sterling silver French hooks with 4mm firepolish crystals threaded on them.
The overall length of the earrings is approximately 3 inches.
Something this dramatically different could only have come from SPARKLE PLENTY!
