When I was an unsophisticated little girl, I believed that the most glamorous, luxurious, perfume a lady could ever own was “Evening in Paris“.
It was sold at Woolworth’s, a 5 and 10 Cent store, so it was definitely affordable for adults, but I remember hoping, during a Christmas season long ago, that I’d be able to scrape together enough of my weekly allowance to buy a small bottle for my Mom . . . (I did!)
Who knows if it actually smelled all that great but there was something enchanting about that cobalt blue bottle with it’s ultra sleek shape. Oh la la! (At least it was to a kid whose age was still a single digit.)
I know. You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this walk down memory lane….
Well, after I finished making these earrings, I was suddenly reminded of the perfume, so naming them was a given. And speaking of “given” – how about a GIVEAWAY! 😀

Glamorous, yet artsy, handcrafted dangle earrings!
Perfect for any outfit. I’ve used Swarovski Jet ABx2 Crystals – which are Black with flashes of Teal and Violet Purple!

They measure 2-5/8 inches long (including *14K Gold-filled* Artisan Crafted Earwires).
