These earrings I was quite proud of. They're not listed yet, but I was all ready to write the blurb about how they are cutting-edge modern, in line with the current 'tribal' trend, mixing geometric with organic shapes, bold and eye-catching, a contemporary and subversive use of pearls etc, etc. (I tend to ramble on a bit when I really like something...)
Showed them to the OH, who to give him his due, is usually pretty much on the money when I ask his advice on my makes. He smiles and says, 'Are they your tribute to Downton Abbey?'
(For my US followers, I should explain that Downton is a Sunday night TV serial that's been gripping the nation recently, set just before the first World War. The dresses have been spectacular.)
Hubby and I have a short, friendly discussion about this. We've been married a long time, so agreeing to differ is by now relatively painless. But I'm left undecided. What do you think? Modern or retro? Trendy or vintage? Or a mix of both? Your opinions, please, lovely blog followers.
