If you were around in the 1960’s and into Pop Culture, you probably remember Edie Sedgwick. She was part of “the MOD scene” at Andy Warhol’s Factory. Edie came from a wealthy and eccentric family. She was super thin, wore tons of eye makeup, the shortest of mini skirts, and the l-o-n-g-e-s-t shoulder sweeping earrings, which looked wonderful with her pixie haircut! I was an impressionable teenager in the 60’s and the allure of the Jet Set fascinated this small town girl. Raised in the Midwest, I was captivated by photos I saw of Edie dancing at Studio 54 in New York, dining in the fanciest restaurants, and hobnobbing with the rich and famous. Sadly, she became a drug addict and overdosed at the age of 28. I thought of that lost “flower child” when I made this pair of long “Matisse Inspired Cutouts” polymer clay earrings…they would have looked super groovy on her!
