Shabby Chic Inspiration

I wanted these earrings to look like they came out of a jewelry box from 1960 - something one of the women on Mad Men would wear. Another exercise in color restraint, the petals are a combination of bronze (base petal) and silver (top petal) Pardo polymer clay. Both petals have been accented slightly with gold mica powder and are varnished to make them sparkle. A silver-plated beadcap sits in the middle filled with black seed beads. The earrings hang from silver-plated lever-back hooks which allow them to hang straight down for maximum effect.
