I like to make some elaborate & fun jewelry but when I'm at work or just doing my regular daily routine my jewelry is pretty plain. These two pair are what I find myself wearing over & over. The teardrop beads are vintage -- 1940s Japan. I love that none of them are exactly the same size or shape. The clear beads are also handformed & vintage. These go with everything! I had a little scare last week because I wore my teardrop earrings without the backs on them. When I got home one was missing! So I immediately ordered more beads. A few nights later I heard Maowie hacking up a furball under the stairs. When I ran to get her... there was my other earring. Luckily she hadn't thrown up on it! But now I do have lots of extra beads so I'm gonna make more of these simple earrings to put in the shop next month.
