This is a little project I have been working on for a little while (obviously!). I stumbled across these amazing little things called ‘cabochons” and fell madly in love with them. They are sweet and delicate and gorgeous. I wanted to do something with them and earrings seemed the best option. The little cabochons’ are mostly West German and nearly always vintage. How lovely they are.
I have been able to source really good quality surgical steel earring posts without nickel ie. won’t bother those of us with sensitive ears! The cabochons themselves are from a couple of lovely suppliers in the States who keep sending me gorgeous vintage glass and vintage cabochons for me to sigh and swoon over. I adore them and have started wearing earrings again for the first time in about 8 years.
Honestly, it’s a bit daunting. I’ve never done anything like this before and therefore it is really an in experiment in the unknown. But you don’t know unless you try. So in the spirit of experimentation, check ‘sigh’ out here, and let me know what you think. x
