Chandelier earrings are one of the big trends in jewelry this season.

And…

The economy is at its worst since the 1930s.

I decided to embrace both facts and designed these earrings featuring the same kind of chain maille that was popular in ladies coin purses of the 20s and 30s.   While historians find it hard to imagine what woman carried in these small purses, my guess is that the few coins that were to be had at that time were treasured…proof that good taste and a sense of style are not limited by money.
