Spring Earrings with Vintaj Findings

     One of my favorite websites to go for inspiration is  It's fun just saying the word Vintaj because it's pronounced (vin tazh').  Just pretend you are Zsa Zsa Gabor dahhhling and say it again...Vintazzzhhh.  Don't you feel just a little glamorous?  I do!  All I need now is a toy sized Pomeranian named "Princess Sweet Kisses" on my lap and a flute of champagne as I peruse all the lovely filligree Vintaj has. 
      If you haven't gone to the Vintaj website yet, take a look at these "dahhhhling" earrings that were made with a few of their findings.  Then go and be inspired!

     Just look at these cute little dragonfly findings.  These have a single loop on each.  I could have used a loop to attach the beads to it, but I wanted a different look.  I simply used a pair of round nose pliers to create a hook on the dragonfly's tail end  Now, it looks like the dragonfly decided to carry those shiny crystals away.
      There are so many fun places to explore on this website.  I especially enjoy the idea gallery.  There are pages of design ideas using Vintaj findings.  A veritable feast for the eyes!

    These sweet little flowers were made with Vintaj filligree bell caps, Czech fire-polished beads, and Swarovski crystals.  They remind me of somethimg Julie Andrews, would have worn while singing "The Sound of Music" in the opening scene of the movie. 

     These little filligree leaves are so versitile.  I constantly have to remind myself that not every piece of jewelry needs an adorable little leaf in it.  They are kind of like Dorritos. It's almost impossible to just eat one chip and put the bag away. Well... you get the idea!
      Blessings to you!
