Bright, bold (like you), and very big, these are statement earrings, 2 x 3 inch hoops with antique French turn-of-the-century glass beads in Aegean green, matte black, pure white, pale shades of blue, lilac and grey and apricot on sterling silver wire, hand-formed. A perfect enhancement to this entire collection.

The Bonbon Story
I've been drawn to antique and vintage beads for as long as I can remember, collecting and culling from American trading posts to dusty French ateliers and markets. Antique beads are humble magical little things to me, evocative, alluring, sexy, hopeful. They are a connection to the imaginations, thought processes and careful workmanship of the hearts and hands of the past. They are the inspiration to create something new from something very old, to cherish all over again, to love and keep or love and share.
