|1950s Paisley Gold and Blue Screw Back Earrings|
The only problem was, they were screw backs that were just a little too painful to wear for very long.
Therefore, these earrings are exactly the type of vintage jewelry I get most excited about because they provide a great opportunity for repurposing!
I removed and filed down the screw backs, cleaned them up so they sparkled like new, and wire wrapped them with a rectangular blue mottled stone and attached them to pierced ear wires.
Still beautiful, still have the charm of vintage, but with a modern flair... and as a bonus, they're no longer painful to wear!
