This is an amusing story about the filming of the movie Factory Girl. At the time, I only made 3 pairs of this earring .
One was on location and the other 2 were in my home. I got a call one Saturday afternoon from the wardrobe stylist in Louisiana. She asked me to send another earring by FedEx, so it arrives on Monday morning. She only asked for one earring, not a pair. The story is that while filming a scene in a hay barn, one of the earrings fell off Sienna’s ear and dropped in a hay stack. They looked but could not find the missing earring. They had to finish the scene while filming the actress on one side only, so you couldn’t see she had only one earring on.Read More
This is another earring style that I believe Edie made herself with other parts of jewelry. I believe she did this to achieve a longer shoulder duster look. My version is called Edie Superstar. I studied her original , then made my version. The bottom hoop looks like a typical hoop earring of that era, made in India in the 60’s. The drops on the original earring were Indian clamshell beads. The part in the middle appears to be a pearl cup but the pearl is missing. When I created mine, I left this mistake in, as it looks more authentic. The top hook is probably part of a bracelet station. It looks Equestrian. Horse themed jewelry was popular then. The ball top was the same top used on the butterfly earrings. On my version, I kept the same Indian inspired pattern as the beads, to tie the whole look together. This is just my opinion. If anyone can shed more light on this, please do!!!Read More
