Channeling Edie…


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!
