Sylvia Plath "Bee Box" Earrings

now for sale at etsy

Sparkly and texty dangle earrings are both "book" and jewelry. Two copper-toned charms frame two carefully selected "windows" from Sylvia Plath's electric poem "The Arrival of the Bee Box." These windows capture both the vertical and horizontal arrangement of words from the poem. The text in these earrings is extracted from a vintage book in which the pages are the perfect color. This is the only book I'm using for these charms, so each one is absolutely one of a kind. Earrings feature blue glass birds and tiny green glass leaves accented with bright and tiny magenta glass beads. Gold-tone fishhooks. Dangles measure two inches. Elegant and intriguing.
