The Vintage Cookie is my creative home, where I record my exploration of design, history, food, and stuff -- from ancient Greece to the Space Age. It is also a chronicle of my entrepreneurial adventures with The Vintage Cookie store and with children's costume manufacturer Lee & Pearl. This is also home to the EARRING PROJECT. In May, 2012 I challenged myself to create and post 365 earring designs in a year -- one for each day. Follow me to join this design adventure.
I made this pair of earrings after a trip to NYC. I love the bead shops on 6th Avenue, and I bought a bunch of brass beads and chains. When I got back I whipped out this pair. They weren't hard to make, although I had to fiddle with the length of the chain tassels a little to get it just right for my neck. The bead is green serpentine from China. I find I pull this pair off of my earring rack fairly often.
