Tender aqua and bright lime green; colors reminiscent of warm summer days.
Lime in your drink, by the pool.
Limes on your dress, by the sea.
Lime popsicles, in the park.
The warm days are nearly here and I have been looking for brightly colored vinyl record labels to bring a bit of sunshine to my Etsy shop. So I went to my record pile and started digging for the colorful labels. Well, I know, I am not your typical record digger as you probably figured out.
Handcrafted one by one from random and rather obscure vinyl records, these stud earrings are truly one of a kind. They feature bits of design and/or names of songs from the original labels.
Oh and there’s no need to worry, record lovers out there, as no collectible records are used in the making of my jewelry. So no Beatles or Rolling Stones or Pink Floyd records are sacrificed for the sake of making jewelry. I rather use a lot of old Christmas records and a lot –a lot- of Nana Mouskouri ones. Oh Nana, how much fun we’ve had sticking your big framed eyes into our own glasses.
I’m using a Nana Mouskouri record sleeve at the moment as a “working board” in the workshop. Oh things happen when your work table is full of old record sleeves. Eh Nana?
