These sweet dangle earrings feature deep purple cloisonne round beads and fine silver-plated bird beads. Little tanzanite AB Swarovski crystals border the main beads, giving this pretty pair some lovely sparkle.

The bird beads are from TierraCast and made in the U.S.A. They are nicely detailed and quite magical! Silver-plated daisy spacers are also added to the top and bottom of the cloisonne rounds, and I tucked in clear glass seed beads directly above the birds and at the top of the crystals to give the crystals more visibility.

The wires for these earrings are non-tarnish silver plate, with a wrap at the top. The ear hooks are sterling silver, with the sterling mark on the rear part of the hooks. Clear earnuts (aka stoppers) are also provided, to keep these dangles more secure on your ears.

The length is around 2 inches. Please see my photos for a visual measurement against a rule.

This is a lovely, eye-catching pair of earrings, and perfect for the springtime!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Months ago, I saw these cloisonne beads in a little bead shop in Providence. I immediately bought them, but waited for the right time to use them. The moment I saw the bird beads was also the moment that I knew the time to use the cloisonne beads had come!

I made this pair in memory of my mother, who adored bird charms and bird jewelry, and who was passionate about the color purple. I thus think of them as "birds of memory" earrings. They represent recollections of maternal love, which is very special indeed. :)

Materials Used

Purple cloisonne rounds (10mm or so), Swarovski tanzanite crystals (4mm), TierraCast bird beads, daisy spacers, glass seed beads, sterling silver ear hooks, earnuts

Welcome to Pretty Gonzo! Your visit is valued! I love jewelry, and what I make is the type of jewelry I would wear myself or give as gifts to friends and relatives. Every piece, however simple, is a little statement about the person wearing it, and I always hope that my jewelry will bring happiness to the person destined to wear it.

CLIP-ON and PIERCED CONVERSION: If you wear clip-ons, I can convert any pair of earrings in my shop into clip-ons for you at no extra charge. Just ask! I can also convert any clip-ons to pierced wires.

CUSTOM ORDERS: If you are interested in a custom order, please contact me. I will list your item(s) as "Reserved," including photos.

My shop's GALLERY section contains the listings of my sold items along with photos, so you can see my past work.

PLEASE NOTE: My photos are always of the actual items I am selling. Many of my jewelry pieces are OOAK (one of a kind), but even in cases where I do repeat a style, I always take new photos.

ALSO: ArtFire is now loading item pages on this site with advertising. These are not here by my choice.


I accept Paypal. Please note that you can securely use your credit card via Paypal even if you don't have a Paypal account.

RHODE ISLANDERS, PLEASE NOTE: By law, I must append RI sales tax to the cost of your purchase and pass it on to "the governor."

Shipping is determined on an item by item basis. Most vintage ships to the United States only. If you live elsewhere, please contact me. I will be happy to help you as best as possible!


PAYPAL: If you use PayPal, I ship to your address as shown by PayPal.

Please make sure your address is current. :)

If you are purchasing a gift for someone and have used his or her address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering. I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard with your shipment, in which I will write whatever message you would like to send. Also, please make sure the recipient's address is current.



United States: Items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking (formerly Delivery Confirmation).

Other Countries: Items are shipped USPS First-Class Mail International. Again, you are responsible for any customs fees and/or tariffs.

Earrings are shipped on earring cards in small plastic bags, wrapped in decorated paper or gift bag, and then wrapped for protection in transit. Bracelets and necklaces are shipped in a similar way (but minus the earring cards).


Most vintage items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking. The exception is vintage books, which ship Media Mail unless otherwise stated in the book's listing. Please note that Media Mail can take some time to reach you. I only select this form of shipping to offer you economical shipping with weightier books. If you prefer a faster form of shipping, simply contact me.

Vintage jewelry is gift-wrapped or gift-bagged and includes protective plastic bag and wrapping.

INSURANCE OPTION: If you would like postal insurance, please contact me. I will invoice you for the cost of insurance.

IN GENERAL: As someone who has made many online purchases, I know how nice it is to experience quick shipping from a seller. My goal is to ship your order promptly once I have received payment.


I want you to be happy with your purchase. Always feel free to contact me about an item before buying, as no question is too minor. I'm pleased to help!

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 5 days of receiving the item. Also, I must receive the item no later than 2 weeks after its delivery to you. If you have a situation where this timeframe poses a problem for you, please let me know before ordering. Also, I do allow extensions for holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early.

You are responsible for shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition with their original wrapping and packing materials. Any earring cards or gift bags should be included.


Refunds for Handmade Jewelry: I will refund for the purchase price minus shipping.

Refunds for Vintage Items: I will refund vintage items for the purchase price minus shipping.


Non-receipt: Tracking provides information on the item's progress to its destination, and I bring my shipments directly to the post office rather than using pick-up. I will do my best to help you if items go astray. Again, always make sure the shipping address you provide is current.

Damage: If an item arrives damaged, please contact me ASAP. I will repair/replace damaged handmade jewelry if you ship it back to me. Also, please see option for postal insurance above. I do pack items well to minimize any problem with damage.


I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments. So please don't hesitate to contact me.

Birds and purple cloisonne! Such a gorgeous combination. I love these earrings!

The bird sitting atop a cloisonné bead on each earring is a charming design. The cloisonné patterns are entirely unique.
