The shop where these came from don't usually have much to offer in the way of jewelry other than the crappy "bijou" junk I see at the flea markets and in several other thrift shops around here.
I think these earrings are pretty. Very 1950s/1960s. The fittings are brass and were covered in that nasty green gunk verdigris. After much careful cleaning, I think I managed to remove 99% of it. Tomorrow is another day. I also want to remove the excess glue around the fittings, so info on how to properly do that is appreciated.
These earrings are cold to the touch and look to be carved vs. molded. I always have a problem identifying this stuff!
Thanks to my CW rescuers.
