At the local market, I have had a request for more earrings, smaller, light-weight earring for an older, BUT hip clientele....also post earrings. It seems that a post is most comfortable for a damage ear, or an earhole that has,(ahem) been pulled from wearing too heavy of an ear, or that result of living through the '80s big earring era... I also have noticed that those that are purchasing, look at price, and want something that looks expensive at a good-quality price, and turn down anything that smacks of cheap--woot! Seriously, I get tired of making bread and butter items.
So, serious percolating of coffee and ideas makes for time at this blog to sift and sort... I am humming to these themes:
1. wild, wild, west meets Art/funky
2. hip, rustic-chic
3. tribal, suburban woman
4. Atomic age mod
5. patina, good gems, and shiny versus matte
So if anyone sees this, what are YOU wanting to dangle in your ears??? OR if you are a designer, what are you contemplating making?
