A while ago the lovely and generous Vente of Vintage Beads from Europe sent me a sampling of her beads to play with and write about.
Although I'm not one to seek out vintage beads, I found a comforting familiarity with these as I sorted through all the wonderful colors.
And then I had to make something. So I picked out two sets of beads I couldn't resist, and made myself some earrings.
They're as light as they are beautiful, and quickly becoming favorites.
Would you like to make some vintage bead designs of your own with the remainder of this delightful stash? In keeping with Vente's generous spirit, I'd love to pass these beads on to someone who either already loves vintage or someone who, like me, is new to it. If you're interested, please leave a comment below, and I will pick a winner on Sunday, November 6th.
