While out exploring resale shops with my friend, Kim, from County Line Road,
I happened upon this vintage set of earrings and a pin (or brooch).
I was looking for more vintage clip-on earrings for the bracelets I've been making.
I asked the sweet lady behind the counter if they had any clip-on earrings.
She said had she had a few, but they weren't priced yet. I was welcome to look at them.
I spotted this set immediately.
It caught my eye because it's my favorite color.
The color reminds me of our trip to Italy last summer.
At first they seemed a bit fussy for my taste, but as I looked closer, I liked the details.
The seed pearls and the flowers and the aqua colored stones are so sweet
Still, the earrings were a bit too small and the pin was a bit too large to work together on a bracelet.
And they looked expensive.
I asked the price anyway and she said Three Dollars. For the Set.
Kim flipped the pin over and said BUY THEM.
They are signed vintage Coro.
For three dollars.
I've grown quite attached to them
and have decided I cannot split them up to make bracelets.
They're meant to be together.
I did convert the painful screw back earring parts into hook earrings
and I wore them out on Saturday night.
They are definitely Saturday Night earrings!
Aren't they Just Grand?
