Trinket #88 - Astronomical Earrings

I've always loved vintage space exploration memorabilia, even old textbooks and the like with completely outdated material. There's just something fascinating about how much human knowledge and technology have changed in such a relatively short period of time. The weird, bumpy beads I used on these earrings today reminded me of the stylized drawings of planets in those books.

So, there ya go. Bumpy, frosted glass beads with glass seed beads on silver wire remind me of old textbooks. I'm not even going to try and analyze that.
