So one of my favorite pair of earrings sold at the Ft. Greene Artisan Market on Saturday. I made them in a late-night frenzy (it happens from time to time) and was on the fence about selling them -- I only made one pair and they were somewhat labor intensive. But when the woman who bought them put them on, I knew -- and she knew! -- they were made for her.
The people watching at the Market is fun and the interactions with customers are enlightening. Sometimes I try to guess which piece of jewelry someone's going to pick out before they do. And while everyone has their own way -- some are very focused know immediately what they want, while others love to browse every piece on the table -- in the end, 9 times out of 10, they end up buying the first piece they picked up. Funny, no?
Any way, I digress. The young woman honed in on these with laser-like precision. She knew what she wanted and these earrings were it! They feature a pair of hand-selected Rutilated Quartz, streaked with gold, and suspended from hoops of pistachio-colored freshwater Pearls. I'm so glad they found each other...
I call them LUX.
