A Hint of Vintage (Jewelry Affaire)

Earlier this year, I had this collection of ear-rings published in Jewelry Affaire, a Stampington magazine which I’d been published in once before but not an article.  It was a huge surprise to receive an article request as submitting to this magazine was really just a challenge to myself, I had not submitted anything since that first time when the pendant was published in the gallery section.
The ear-rings followed on from some play time I had with vintage doilies (the hairbands and hair clips I shared recently).  I didn’t know if it would be possible to make ear-rings from the motifs but I had nothing to lose!
As you can see, only a handful of supplies were used to make each pair.
As with the motifs for the hairbands, they were treated (instructions are in the magazine).
It was kind of them to also include the packaging which was really only intended as a means to prevent the ear-rings becoming tangled as they made their way from Scotland to the Stampington office.
Thank you always for the time you take to pop on over here.
