6.12.10. Cheers, Finland!

These amazing glass crystal beads were found from a wonderful vintage store in Stockholm last month. I just happened to notice that there was something glittering in a ceramic bowl, almost hidden away at the back of a shelf. I pulled the bowl forward and immediately fell in love with the colour and cut of these vintage crystals that had been rescued from a broken necklace.

The crystals are so striking on their own that I didn’t want to add too much stuff around them, so the first piece to come out of that handful of crystals that I purchased is a very simple pair of earrings.
The lively colour of the crystals shifts according to the light and angle from emerald green, to vibrant fuchsia to almost electric blue. In all their simplicity they are an elegant eye-catcher and could make any bearer the belle of the ball.
