These earrings will make you smile, even if their pattern makes you feel a little dizzy. The "stones" are vintage Lucite buttons from the Beadin' Path in Freeport, Maine. The playful black and gray stripes are enough detail; I created a very simple setting for them, with just a little backplate showing. I oxidized the metal to black to make the Lucite stand out better. (If you put the earrings in jewelry cleaner, the oxidization will come off -- use a soft piece of cotton to polish them.) I finished the earrings with handmade silver kidney ear wires that close to ensure these lightweight earrings won't slip off.
Size: 15/16" wide; 2" long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the backplate (dangle is 1 1/16")
NOT SURE WHEN TO WEAR THEM? They look like party earrings, but they're a great way to punch up a boring suit in a conservative office. You need to have *some* fun during the day!
AND WHO DOESN'T LOVE A DEAL? If you buy the Dizzy Earrings and the Turbine Ring -- they make a fun set -- together, I'll give you both for $180. That's $15 off the total. I'll return the money to you through PayPal after your purchase.
