These sterling silver wire wrapped Herkimer Diamond earrings are delicate and feminine but demand to be noticed. After making two pairs of earrings similar to the Gillian Lynne style, I was already getting bored with that basic style and wanted to mix it up a little. These have some of the look of the Gillian Lynne style and use some of the techniques I had been using with my later pendants (Sally, Sara, & Shafi) The earrings pictured are the exact earrings you will receive. They are one of a kind.
These earrings were named after Debbie Sterling the creator of Goldie Blox. We were having a discussion about education and girl’s toys when my sister introduced me to Goldie Blox. Debbie graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering, but was bothered by why there were so few women in her major, so she decided to do something about it. Now she has put her skills to work more as a social engineer, trying to make a difference in how society treats young girls. She believes there must be more girls out there like her, who would be interested in engineering if they had more exposure and encouragement. As a more mechanically minded female, who usually put her brother’s Lego vehicles together, and clearly remembers the boy on the front of her Domino Rally box, I applaud Debbie’s effort.
