rings on her fingers and bells on her toes...

Well, not on the toes, really. But I put some very vintage brass bells on a pair of earrings - because I am fond of the tinkle...

Really pretty pop of color against the aged brass. I think it would be fun to jingle while I walked.

Thanks so much for your visit and comment on my blog . I don't know what has happened tome .. I was drawn to Fancifuldevices on a fluke and it has literally turned my whole world around... And now with the forum .i feel like I've found my home... Oh bead shows! Now of course I only want the real brass and the real vintage... Thank
goodness I don't work in silver but no one seems In our little crowd... I love the work of so many of the ladies but still want to be myself and come up with my own ideas.. So nice meeting you... See you around!

I think we all need to have little bells on our ears ringing in the joy of life's little moments.

These are the prettiest earrings and they sing!! I use to have a necklace that would make "music", a harmony ball I think it was called. I love wearing something that makes gentle noise.

Oh, I love those, Renate! They look so dainty. I cannot imagine working on such a small scale, wrapping all those little beads. Just wonderful!! Hope you are doing well... Love, Silke

love these, love jewelry that makes a bit of moise and takes on it's own life along side yours.

S/R I'm sure the wearer of these earrings will feel so uplifted by the gentle tinkle of the bells. The earrings just look delicious. B

You like the tinkling! First the gorgeous necklace & now these. The way you mix it up is great!

Cindy said...

Renate, the first thing I notice other than the sheer beauty of these earrings was the color - your signature green! I love how you gathered up such beautiful shades of green to accent the bells. What stunning earrings - I love this look!

Stacie said...

What a great idea for earrings. I put a survey up on my G+ page a few months ago about what women like in earrings and many of them came back with "I like for them to tinkle"...these would have been perfect!

SooZeQue said...

Those are beautiful! That color of green is one of my fav. Just today I found the sweetest little brass bell - too bad I don't have another.

Dear Renate! These are so beautiful! I send love and wishes for time to be sweet and slow. Miss you and visiting you and others. Light, Amy

The bells, the bells!!! Such a gorgeous thing to have dangling off a body! Oh - the green mixed with bronze - such a delicious colour combination - I can't get enough!

Wunderschöne Ohrringe, Renate! Sie sehen allerdings ziemlich schwer aus.

Ich wünsche dir ein sonniges Wochenende!

Liebe Grüße,
Gaby
