I’ve got Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” stuck in my head because of the single earrings I’ve added to my WENDYB by Wendy Brandes diffusion line.
The single earrings I wore in the 1980s have been on my mind this year. I loved that look so much.
It annoyed me when I had to buy a pair of earrings back then; I wanted to buy just one of everything.
For a long time, I’ve thought about adding single-earring options to my diffusion line and I finally got motivated after I lost my treasured single, neon, guitar-pick earring from the early ’80s at a Madonna concert this September.
I figured single earrings would be a good way of memorializing that beloved piece.
My first offerings are 5-millimeter single stud earrings: a sterling-silver hashtag and an “at sign,” both made in New York City.
Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to one earring — you’re welcome to purchase two of either style and wear them as a pair.
You know my personal style philosophy is “Wear What You Want.” I don’t judge. Wear one, wear two, wear five if you have enough holes for them. If hashtags and “at signs” aren’t your thing, holla at me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com and I’ll make you any letter, number or punctuation earring as a single or a set. It’s up to you! I’ll also make them in yellow, white and rose gold, in addition to the silver shown on my website.
