I'm fiddling and posting - new job, new home. Same husband and children :-)
I'm concentrating more on beads - of all kinds - rings and cufflinks.
My instant fix.
These are my Carnival Cufflinks in green (I have blue also).
I don't know why they make me think of carnivals - they're not even similar to Carnival Glass, but they look jaunty to me. So Carnival it is. They're glass from the 1950s and are West German. Most of the vintage cabochons easily available at the moment seem to be of that description and there are some excellent quality cabs available.
