The girls told me that they'll look great on me...and that I'll love the feeling of them swinging as I walk and move. I told them that I had tried them on, and yes, I'm really looking forward to wearing them. And they said to drop by sometime when I'm going out, to show the girls how nice vintage earrings look... (I think they enjoyed working on them...even though they're costume jewelry.)
Here's a picture of the finished product:
And one earring was somehow bent...they were able to fix that, too!
I can still picture my mother, dressed in a fancy gown, hair all done up, and in fashionable high heel sandals (with nylons), and wearing these earrings, all set to go to a fancy dress party with Dad. But now I can also see myself wearing that same outfit... Maybe it will happen some day!
In any event, these should be fun to wear...starting tomorrow, if all goes well!
