Rosey Earrings of Unknown Origin!

I had a random plate covered in sprigs of roses.  It didn’t have any kind of stamp to identify it – but was clearly ‘vintage’ from its condition.  I think I bought it on eBay – someone had attempted to make it into a cake stand (these seem to be hugely popular right now) but had drilled the centre hole (for the stand attachment) off-centre.  Ooops.  Their loss was my gain!

I was able to use most of the rose sprigs and made two different kinds of studs.  The cheaper ones at £15 have a sterling silver back and post (see the front of the picture) and the slightly more expensive ones at £20 which are set into sterling silver (the back three in the picture).
