1950s Filigree Screw Back Earrings~ Before and After

These earrings were beautiful in their original 1950s form.  They were well cared for, but let's be honest- screw back earrings are a little painful!

I thought they would look great paired up with some uniquely shaped tiger eye beads, and some small rhinestones.

I cleaned them up, removed their screw backs, and filed them smooth.  Then, I connected them to the tiger eye beads and rhinestones.  They still have their vintage charm, but with a subtle update.  I think they're even prettier now, and definitely more comfortable to wear!
