Was Edie Sedgwick a Jewelry designer ?
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!!!
