When I sent them for the magazine, I also whipped them up in red for my Christmas outfit. And since Christmas is a mere 105 days away (I know! I can hardly believe that it is coming so fast myself!), I thought about bringing these back and making them in a variety of colors for all the festive seasons. Wouldn't these look great with pearls? or clear crystals? They would be marvelous for a wedding I think!
Originally, I gave these earrings the name 'Red Carpet Envy' as I felt that any ingenue worth her salt would kill to have a pair of these dazzlers dangling from her lobes as she sashayed down that crimson carpet. And everyone who saw her in them would certainly turn a shade of green. (They must have thought that the 'Climbing Ivy' moniker was a better fit. I think it is kind of an expected name. But what do I know.) At the time there were many bright green dresses popping up on red carpets all over the place. I think you might even still see them in the coming months. The intense green seems to work great on any skin tone and really is a standout against that brightly hued rug. Don't you think they would be the perfect complement to this Catherine Deane design in pleated emerald green chiffon with a charming lace detail at the back?
Makes me wish for a reason to dress the part!
