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.
These elegant earrings are beads from a crystal bracelet. The bracelets were a dollar a piece, so I bought a couple -- one to wear as a bracelet, and one for matching earrings. I have enough beads for more than a dozen pairs of earrings, but here are the first two. I added two chalcedony rectangular beads on one pair - I love how the colors match, but everything else about the stones contrasts.
