Pink Pearl Earrings

I got an amazing bead bargain recently, and picked up some beads and findings for ten for $1. I made a pair of pearl earrings with my bargain buys. I used a different type of head pin than I usually do, and they are made of quite a soft metal. It will be interesting to see how the new headpins stand up to wear and tear.

The pearl beads were threaded on to a headpin and topped with a bell cap. Then an earring hook was added and the top of the headpin was bent over.

These earrings will be useful for sixteenth century garb, especially English and Italian clothing.
