Note: If you want to look for art featuring earrings on Etsy, the majority of it will be some sort of
spin on Vermeer's 'Girl With A Pearl Earring.' This print just happens to be the spin I like best.
You know how people often talk about doing a double-take? I did one of those the other day, although in an odd, only-on-the-Internet kind of way, and the thing that made me look twice were these:
For the record, those are crocheted earrings. Now, admittedly I am not much for jewelry (the last time I wore earrings was to my brother-in-law's wedding three years ago,) so it tends not to register in my mind when it pops up on Etsy, Pinterest or any other website. However, instead of the above earrings just passing right out of mind shortly after seeing them, they did a perfect U-turn, came right back and made me sit there and think, "...Did I really just see crocheted earrings?"
And what do you know--I did. That puzzled me a little, because I wasn't even aware that crocheted earrings were even a thing. Who came up with them? When did they become popular? I have no idea, and apparently opinions differ a lot. And what's more, there are even more of those out there than I could've guessed. Because crocheted earrings are the new hotness, and honestly, that's just fine by me.
So today, it's crocheted earrings on HH. Because I can't be the only person who didn't see these coming, but I'm pretty cool with them now that they're here.
First up, there's these leaf-shaped earrings, which are pretty snazzily understated. Y'know, for earrings made from yarn.
While I remain uninterested in all things colored pink, I will say that these crocheted oval-shaped earrings are
really stinkin' cute.
However, I will freely admit that these green granny-square earrings are far more to my liking, although for some reason they make me think of that Huey Lewis and the News song, "Hip To Be Square."
And finally, because I know there are people out there who like them some statement jewelry, here's a pair of dangly-beaded crocheted earrings:
As to what kind of statement they make, I think that's up to personal interpretation. My interpretation is "I LIKE CONFETTI. LOTS OF CONFETTI."
And on that note, see you next week!
