Year of Jewelry: Week 2

Our inspiration for this week was the word 'Grace'.  Trying to pin down the word was rather tough for me because what I kept coming back to was the poise and grace of the actresses of forties and fifties.  I finally decided to pay homage to them and made a pair of earrings that I could see one of those actresses wearing to a Hollywood party.

Since we are talking about vintage actresses I chose to use vintage supplies.  In fact the only item that isn't vintage would be the headpins that I used with the crystal and the french hooks.


  1. Beautiful earrings! I had trouble with the theme of Grace too - I kept thinking of Grace Kelly (who I do happen to think was incredibly graceful). I love the vintage components you used.
