New at Bumbershoot Designs. Fleur. Earring Design Featuring Vintage Copper Fleur de Lis from Bumbershoot Supplies

This is Fleur.

There isn't much cross over between Bumbershoot Supplies and Bumbershoot Designs. By that I mean that you don't see too many of the supplies I purchase for Bumbershoot Supplies ending up in the designs I offer at Bumbershoot Designs.

I'm not exactly sure why it has worked out that way, but when I purchased these vintage copper fleur de lis for Bumbershoot Supplies, I knew I wanted to design with them.

I threaded the prongs through a Vintaj brass filigree, and pressed them down. They easily fold securely onto the filigree and it is nice and neat at the back. I had some lovely bronze-ish vintage baroque glass pearls, which I adorned with more Vintaj - the brass floral bead caps.  Then I wire wrapped using antiqued copper ball head pin to the filigree and finished with antiqued copper leverbacks.

Warm, rich earrings, with a lovely and subtle mix of metals, naturally aged patina, lustrous pearls. Works for me! Fleur is in the vintage pearls section of Bumbershoot Designs, or just contact me.

Wishing you a great weekend!
