Etsy Spotlight: Starry, Starry Ears

Winona Dimeo-Ediger / March 30, 2014

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol’ things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels, a fur bolero, and bright pink rouge. She picked up one of the ear cuffs and asked, “What is this?” I showed her how to put it on, and she looked in the mirror and gasped, “I look … badass.” “Yes you do!” I said, because she totally did, and she ended up buying it. So rad. I’m not sure I have what it takes to pull off a huge ear cuff like that lady, but I love the look of a dainty ear pin that extends up the ear a bit. This triple star design is so cool. Maybe not badass, but definitely cool. [$18.36, Arajera]
