Historians call the 1970s “pivot of change”

1970s coral tear drop.JPGThe 70s was about identity, personal expression and individuality. We wore tie dye shirts, midi skirts, bell bottoms; it was the hippie look with extremely bright colors. Jewelry accessories were chokers and natural handcrafted neck ornaments made from wood, shells, stones Indian beads and leather.  These handmade pieces replaced standard jewelry for the hippie. We were indifferent to trends.  After several years of homemade jewelry pearl earrings and gold-button earrings became popular. Here from the 1970s is a pair of Gold Angel Skin Coral Teardrop Earrings.
