.....and now for the earrings...!

Did you see yesterday's post on these vintage nailhead beads? Scroll down to check out how I cleaned up these pretty red flowers, ready for action. I've combined them with vintage brass charms, matte kingfisher green glass seed beads and handmade copper earwires. The nailhead beads present a bit of a challenge because a) they have two holes and b) they are very light and therefore delicate. I imagine that I will therefore be using most of my stash of these in earrings, but I forsee a very delicate and dainty bracelet in their future also. 

These will be heading to my etsy shop on Monday, but do comment if you would like them! £16 and for my lovely blog readers, I am offering free worldwide shipping.
