I was walking across 125th Street in Harlem the other day and noticed a guy standing outside of a store, wearing really surprising earrings in one ear. “Wow, cool earrings” I said, “Did you make them?”

“Yeah, and they’ve got a story…” He said with a smile. He told me he dreamed them, dreamed of earrings made of mailbox keys, etched with his astrological sign, Aries. So, he took a couple of mailbox keys to a jeweler and had them etched…in silver.

He was really proud of them.

…Original and beautiful, with a backstory I never would have guessed..earrings-dtl1

    These are awful. Reminds me of my junk drawer. It's only missing a half stick of Trident and some loose change.

    He should have had a dream about what to do about his adult acne, I'm just sayin'. But it is creative.

    It's really no worse than the big earrings with the names on them...Huge hoops with very large letters forming the "usually" girls name...

    The backstory is kinda cool; the look is kinda stupid.

    "Trendy" doesn't seem like the right word, but I like them!

    It's stupid but since when wasn't stupid, irrational, useless and unoriginal trendy in the west... "The stupider the better" seems to be the last few generations cultural motto.

    The story behind them is wonderful. But they just look silly to me. But then again, I have angel wing earrings maybe those look silly to someone too. At least he is happy with them.
