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 wish I had a picture of the before of these -- they came with a necklace. The ear wires were large, with a coil and a hollow steel bead. All the loops were very large. When one wore the earrings, the large scale findings made the earrings look cheap. I took the earrings apart and re-hung the beads on my own, hand made head pin and ear wire. I kept all of the loops as small as I could. The result is show above, very delicate.
