I’ve been more experimental with my movie character earrings–experimental has always been my style really, when it comes to creating. I’m having fun with these as a sort of ‘women’s study,’ because I think as women, we look for ourselves in other women. It’s the differences that are fascinating and what I’m most curious about. Here are the next six pairs:
In the film, Tyler only wore a simple stud in her left ear. For petite Lori Petty, I made her character’s surfboard in mini shrinky-dinks.
Poor Lina Patch didn’t have much of a personality apart from what she could do for the men in the film, so it was kinda hard being inspired by her static character. I went with the colors of her clothing and made something reminiscent of her neck scarves…symbolic, I think, of yet another squelched female voice on the big screen.
I love Sigourney Weaver’s character in this film, and her outfits are fabulous. She needed the confident earrings of a self-assured woman, perfect for her next cocktail party. I chose warm red-brown glass with gold chain for this 70s sexpot.
For the girl with all the addictions, cigarettes were a natural choice. Though physically gritty, they have an allure that’s hard to deny…coal-black poison covered in a smooth, shiny shell. The red ‘flames’ at the end double as drops of blood. The soothing, deceptive distraction of vice.
Known in the real world as ‘The Naked Cowgirl,’ Sandy Kane plays larger-than-life Gloria in The Florida Project, so she needed some big, flamboyant earrings to go with her crazy makeup and outfits (or lack thereof).
Off with the veil and on with the skin-tight jeans. Sally Field’s Carrie/’Frog’ wasn’t quite liberated–but getting there.
Looking forward to the next batch–until then!
