Whispering Wind Earrings ~ Reinventing Vintage

While I frequently create jewelry from raw materials, I am trying more frequently to incoroporate vintage elements to give new life to old objects.  The idea is that instead of wasting materials, antique pieces and beads that would otherwise be lost by the wayside or forgotten are made new again.

Perhaps one of my favorite of these pieces are my Whispering Winds Earrings.  I used vintage glass frosted teardrops and combined them with new gunmetal nickel free leverback earrings. The gunmetal, while new still has a lovely antique feel to it to complement the vintage glass pieces.
