It got its first outing tonight for Hubby's and my date. We got dolled up and went to see a burlesque show. By the way, if you've never seen burlesque you should. The art form is undergoing a period of rejuvenation and wild creativity and it's really a lot of fun.
I've gotten in the habit of keeping my eyes open for vinatge dangle earrings. I don't like wearing clip on or screw backs but if the earrings have a drop, I can take them off and make them into peirced earrings. I like leverbacks for this. I do sacrafice some of the original look since there is usually a design element attached to the clip or screw part but it seems to be a reasonable compromise. I'll try to remember to post before and after pictures next time I convert a pair.
