Rooty tooty fresh and fruity.

fruitear.jpgThese have to be the strangest, funkiest earrings I have ever seen. They are crocheted and although Girlshop says they are lightweight, I can’t imagine 5 inches of yarn-fruit hanging from your lobes would be comfortable. Plus at $175 a pair, I am at a loss for words who would spend that much on these! My crochet crazy friend Amber (who just sent me a handmade scarf in ASU colors!) could probably hook thesegoldleaf.jpg together in no time and make a fortune! In contrast, these Sun Leaf earrings also available at Girlshop are more my style. I love big hoops and I think the leaf clusters are a unique touch and have a cool natural vibe. They may not strike everyone’s fancy but at $77 they are much more affordable for my budget and much more my taste!

    I absolutely love knitting and craftiness but there are always those projects that take it a bit too far. And while these earrings would be interesting maybe on a smaller scale or on a headband or just…you know, not so big and hanging off the side of your head, the hoops are definitely the better choice.

    […] If you recall, I’ve had a couple issues with crochet in the past. Bad fruit earrings and spiderweb swimwear to be exact. But this is one item that I am pleased to report features the intricate art of crochet in a beautiful way. And I must have it in all three colors. Or just maybe I can get my close friend and crochet maven, Amber, to make one for me at a fraction of the cost ? (The original is $108 at shopbop.) I believe in your talent Amber, you can do it! […]

    […] first combination of fiber & jewelry that I truly like.  I’ve seen some sad attempts at earrings strangled in crochet, and strange fabric scraps passed off as brooches, but I’ve rarely liked something […]
