The Vintage Cookie is my creative home, where I record my exploration of design, history, food, and stuff -- from ancient Greece to the Space Age. It is also a chronicle of my entrepreneurial adventures with The Vintage Cookie store and with children's costume manufacturer Lee & Pearl. This is also home to the EARRING PROJECT. In May, 2012 I challenged myself to create and post 365 earring designs in a year -- one for each day. Follow me to join this design adventure.
Earrings from 22 g wire and a pair of glass pearls
These two glass pearls were liberated from a $1.00 "pearl" necklace bought in downtown L.A. They combine with a couple of inches of 22 g. silver plated copper wire for a pair of surprisingly elegant earrings. I made the wire spiral around a round pencil that was slightly thinner than the usual pencil width.Similar earrings could be made with a thicker or textured wire for a little more heft, but when worn even this relatively fine wire catches the light with every movement of your head.
