Purple Polka Dot Earrings

I have had these beautiful German glass beads for something like 25 years! I remember the town where I bought them, and that's how long its been since I was there. Why haven't I used them before? They've waited so patiently in the shadows, but at last their time has come to shine!
In addition to the German glass beads, I've included Czech glass and a delightful metallic flash from small, square hematite beads. Swaying beneath the German glass beads are purple glass flowers, threaded on Sterling silver "paddle head pins". The sweet little flowers are accented with more square hematite beads and small lavender glass beads. These beads may have been ignored for 25 years, but I think the earrings were worth the wait. The Purple Polka Dot earrings are available in my shop.
Summer has officially arrived, at least in the northern hemisphere.  I hope it is pleasantly warm and sunny where you live. See you in two weeks.


  1. Wonderful earrings Linda. Love the little dangles on the earrings.

  2. Wonderful beads Linda, I'm surprised you could part with them at all!

    1. After all that time, they finally deserved to be used and admired by others.

  3. Those are truly special beads - I agree with Lindsay, those would be hard to part with!
