Okay, I have to admit...after making these earrings, I just had to keep them. I can't part with them, I just can't do it. They're SO me.
I purchased the purple filigree at a local consignment shop called Serendipity. The earrings had long purple tubes and balls and even the ear wires were purple posts! They were 5 inches in length! Actually they were quite hideous but really stylin' back in the day I'm sure. I couldn't wait to take them apart because I immediately pictured using turquoise colored beads with this shade of purple. So, I got on one of my most favorite Etsy sites Arte Bella Surplus and ordered these Picasso Czech glass beads and they were perfect!

 These earrings begged to be paired with a peasant blouse or tunic like this one...
