Mardi Gras Mask with Pearl Earrings
These earrings are decorated in the traditonal Mardi Gras colors with a pearl placed above the masks (how cute!?).
Made by Laurie Calahan from Muddy Boot Jewelry.
Statement from the artist:
"The river is a symbol of life, the passage of time, and the power of nature. It is a reminder to live life to the fullest and respect every place you visit. Since I love to travel, I wanted to take a piece of my favorite places with me everywhere I go. Louisiana, my home, is one of these places for me. In Louisiana, the Red River forms the boundary between Caddo and Bossier parishes and flows southeast. By creating a special mixture of soil from the Red River with moldable binders (a sort of "mud," if you will) and forming my Muddy Boot Jewelry collection, I was able to find a unique way to wear a beautiful symbol of life and take a little piece of home with me everywhere I go."
Don't sling mud. Wear it.
