Echoes from the Past by LuthienThye Echoes from the Past by LuthienThye

Old letters and postcards exude an aura of nostalgia and old world beauty. Above all they represent an ageless romance of a time past. These are 4 pieces of such romance. Made essentially from brass wires, brass stampings and reprints of genuine vintage postcards then resined over for a glossy sheen, these art earrings are rustic, old world and timeless.

* the earwires are 20 gauge brass wires
*Note : Colors may vary with different computer/smartphone screens

I really like those old letters and postcards! Gives me a great feeling about it!
Mostly I like to see the word "Feldpost", even it's more a word used in the German military.
Harmless thing. With the "Feldpost" soldiers/troops were able to send letters or get informed.
As far as I know... not 100% sure about it.

No problem. I hope to be of service at any time.
(my on lack of writing more story-letters is a shame, while you got so much awesome stuff done)
