NYC Street Dirt Earrings
The perfect souvenir of your recent NYC trip. Perfect for homesick New Yorkers. Perfect for you. These earrings are made from genuine New York City street dirt- the dirty kind of dirt- set in sterling silver. Completely handmade and totally waterproof- your dirt jewelry will not turn to mud! I first started creating dirt jewelry after completion of an extensive diamond setting class in midtown Manhattan. As I sat diamondlessly at my jewelers bench, I looked out my window for inspiration. Trying not to stare directly at the lady across the street doing dishes, I noticed the fluttering leaves of the potted ivy plant on my fire escape. I looked at the mound of dirt at its base and felt a little sorry for it. Why shouldn't dirt get a little time in the spotlight?
