Keep on Truckin' Earrings!

What do you get when you pair Swarovski crystal beads, sterling silver findings and vintage Hess Truck toy tires? Great pair of Truckin' earrings! The 1st pair I made was couple years ago...after thinking about them for quite some time. I sold them at a show to a man who's niece was turning 13...and who's father a collector of Hess Trucks.... Uh-oh.. Hope they didn't cause a problem.

Well if there are any purest out there.. please note my dad always bought 2 trucks for my kids... one to store...and another to destroy..through play. I couldn't bare to through them away..... so I came up with this idea after thinking about my childhood tire swing. LOL Enjoy your memories!

Swarovski Capri Blue and Garnet Hearts!

Topaz and Siam...

More Topaz and Peridot.

Have you ever used toys in you junk revamps? Add a little fun to your ventures.... After all... if it's not fun... Then why do it?

That Girl, Ang
