Jim is now my official apprentice for sculpted earrings.
Coal to diamonds was Loretta Lynn’s theme in Coal Miner’s Daughter. Who doesn’t love a good rags-to-riches story? We have a new appreciation for her music, too.
Mama, played by the interesting and talented Grace Zabriskie, was the only compelling character in this film. I just found out that she hails from New Orleans, which explains her spot-on accent/dialect in the movie. We don’t know much about Mama, since none of the characters really had much ‘character,’ but her crazy-eyed expressions tell me she’d be the type to wear shrimps for jewelry.
Beep-bop-boop, you’re wired. I don’t think the Iron Giant would wear earrings–do robot aliens even get fashion?–but if he did, they might be made of self-screwing robot bolts with some extra gears for good measure.
Although I couldn’t stand this movie, it was still fun to create a pair of cartoony earrings for Wanda, the character I kept mistaking for Rebecca De Mornay. She was the coolest. Her go-to expression is pretty relevant, embellished with black tears.
Sweet-as-apples (how d’ya like them?) Skylar. I had the most fun making the napkin grooves, which I hammered into the leather using a long bolt.
Type O negative blood-on-a-stick. The only type for cultured vampires (obviously). The handles are also fangs (duh). #tildaforever #tildaliterallyforever
It’s understood that none of this movie’s characters are ever going to be a match for Prince’s sparkly charisma, so these earrings are inspired by him but worn–asymmetrically, of course–by Apollonia.
