Leda2 asked:
When I was a little girl, the neighbor lady next door made these. She worked at Younkers and was allowed to purchase broken jewelry. She used black velvet on the background to show off the glitter of the metal. Each was a piece of art.
pgirsh answered:
I really wanted emerald green but could not find it at the time. I asked family and friends for broken jewelry and one earring, even my husband contribulated cuff links.
