Handmade..W.German Mint Green Milk Bead... Earrings


These are Vintage beads, and are my absolute favorite Vintage beads that I have found.
Fell in love with them and adore the gorgeous mint green color of these unique beads and they are in beautiful condition.
They are, however, very hard to find.
I made these earrings using Vintage W.German mint green milk beads, daisy bead caps and black E-beads with 30x6mm antique silver tribal feather charms .
Earrings...2" long Hypoallergenic Earwires.

More Info

They were made in Kaufbeuren, in southern Germany, southwest of Munich. They were made in the 1950’s and remained in a warehouse there for decades, until the warehouse was closed and the contents of the warehouse were purchased by the supplier who provided the beads to us.
Germany had been devastated from WWII, so West Germany set out to rebuild the economy through very rapid reconstruction. They experienced what is known as Wirtschaftswunder or “economic miracle” throughout the 1950s. From the late ’50s on, West Germany had one of the world’s strongest economies.
A large contributor to the success of this huge economic upswing came from increased production and manufacturing of goods such as costume jewelry. However, the materials they used in making jewelry in West Germany had to be inexpensive due to its struggling economy.
They became known for their plastic bead sets, beaded tiered bib style necklaces and crystal beaded cluster earrings, brooches, and bracelets. They also produced striking jewelry made of glass, imitating precious gemstones.
Hand-painted porcelain and enamel pieces in floral settings were also popular and were often constructed by women who were in need of jobs after the war. West Germany’s relations with the U.S. improved and costume jewelry, which grew to become a significant industry, was now a part of international trade.
