The beads are made of hand-cut leaded crystal, I believe they were originally coated with a layer of lacquer to make them appear matte but this coat has worn off on some parts. Some of the coating are still on the beads and fine as is, but if you'd like to take the time to remove them with alcohol you will have a shiny pair of earrings. The top tear-drop chaton is sparkling. There are minor chips to the bottom beads. 1960s.

VINTAGE COPPER ENAMEL RED PALETTE EARRINGS
http://lemonkitscharms.com/shop/vintage-1950s-red-copper-enamel-modernist-palette-screw-back-earrings

Size: 29 x 24mm
Fine - good condition with aging, powdered enamel in red and black with colourful speckles on a metal base. It used to be copper-plated but that has been attacked by verdigris and I had to remove it. Some pitting has occurred on the back surface as a result and under the copper-plating it is a grey-silvertone base with a brushed surface. Actually my third photo made it look alot worse than it is in person; it is very clean to wear now. On the front there is some dulling on the surface. Artisan-made from the 1950s. Modernist jewellery are pieces that are wearable pieces of art focusing on design and form.
