Earrings from Outer Space

Ok, not really. But these bronze-y beadcaps definitely look like they're part of a spaceship. I found them at one of my local bead stores, in a drawer that I had never ventured in before. What an amazing find! Oddly, they are a bit narrower at the top than they are at the opening, which makes it very difficult to find the right bead to fit inside. Luckily, I have these tapered tube vintage glass beads in several colors (I've been hoarding them). They are perfect for these beadcaps! A very satisfying discovery indeed.

Here they are in classic black:


And now in a gorgeous olive green:


Both of these earrings are now available for sale in my etsy shop. Click on the photos to go directly to the listings.
