Coolest tea earrings of the year!
Y'all know about my "thing" for tea-themed jewelry. Well, a recent cheapie eBay find (from Turkey, no less) is this pair of silver and turquoise earrings. They're badly tarnished, but I like them anyway!
At first, they look like just some funky figural earrings with a rather traditional silver and turquoise circular design up top, but it's what's below that makes these so interesting.
Upon closer inspection, there is what was described as "a tea set" swinging away on the tray. I love these! I may be the only one who knows what's going on behind my earlobes but I'll enjoy them anyway! Silver polish worked beautifully on the underside but I was a little cautious about polishing the "tea set," so I may try getting some liquid silver cleaner and dipping them. (Unless someone thinks that would be a bad idea. If so, please save me from disaster!)
