I’ve been a tweetin’ fool today, so these Twitter stud earrings by Dahlia Shamir particularly resonate. They are simple, cute without being cutesy, obviously relevant to my interests, and perfectly affordable. Wish I’d been wearing these all day instead of dangly vintage clip-ons; those were murder on the lobes!
… since the last movie in the Harry Potter Series premiered but the fandom has not abated in it’s love for Hogwarts and it’s inhabitants, both good and bad. That’s a good thing, the longevity of it remains and so does the crafting inspiration that many find from the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
For those wanting to show their continued loyalty in a fashionable way, Rachael, who has the TrenoNights shop on Etsy, offers these tiny recreation of the Harry Potter books as earrings. The customer can pick any two books to make up the pair of earrings or let Rachael pick them for you.
This lovely reproduction of the journal is handcrafted from recycled materials. Sara even used coffee to tint the pages of the journal. The richness of the charm comes in the excellent details of the original diary. The journal comes with it’s own silver chain as well.
Do you have an old-school geeky dad in your life? With father’s day right around the corner, Virginie Millefior might have something up his alley. These little aliens are “sawn-off from a sheet of brass, molded and cast into brass to create two identical space invaders cufflinks.”
If you are an aficionado of old video games, but have no need to link cuffs, fear not! Ms. Millefior also has necklaces, rings, and other trinkets that pay homage to our favorite games of the late 70s/early 80s.
While perusing the Net this morning, I came across this fantastic etsy shop. 1luckysoul has an wonderful collection of necklaces that can tempt the many obsessions of geeks and fandom!
Look at this piece called Snape’s Memoir. I think it’s my favorite. There are horcruxes, sorting hats, the Deathly Hallows trio, stacks of Hogwarts books, and then, there’s the Hunger Games collection. I’d have a hard time making a decision as to which ones to buy because I wouldn’t be able to stop at just one!
