Vintage Earring Bracelet in Blues

These cold gloomy days often find me huddled in my cozy "studio" 
(read: laundry room/craft area) 
working on projects that keep me inside, where it's nice and warm.

I've written several posts about the Vintage Earring Bracelets I've been making.
You can read about them here and here and here.

I love making these bracelets because I think each earring is a little work of art.  
Somebody put a lot of effort into making these, usually before machines were used.  
And somebody's grandmother wore them on very special occasions.  
And I love having something small and inexpensive to hunt for at flea markets and antique shops.

I think these little treasures need to be seen!  

This bracelet works with denim and navy and black and white.

The center earring is gorgeous...
Great stones, prong set and beautiful colors. 

This pair inspired me to hunt for other blue earrings and here they are:

It came together when I found the end earrings with the pretty star pattern and the crystal border. 
For the bling, you know.

I had to add a little crystal bead charm to the end of the chain - it finishes it off nicely 
and adds a bit of weight that makes it easier to fasten.

Soooo pretty.
Grandmothers are smiling somewhere.

I think I'll wear it with this gorgeous new necklace I just picked up at Chico's, for half price. 

Oodles and oodles of beads.

The beads in the necklace are a bit bluer than they show up in these photos...

I've got the winter blues allright....
Can't wait to wear them on Saturday night!
