Though the fashion world is buried deep in the mania of the Autumn 2012 Fashion Week whirl, us mere mortals are rejoicing the arrival of Spring – well, in the shops at least, the weather just needs to catch up. This season the accessory is big in all senses of the word; from giant bags at Victoria Beckham to wiiiiiide belts at Alexander McQueen, but the thing that caught my eye (and almost took it out) were these earrings from Dolce & Gabbana. Going back to their Italian roots the boys celebrated the humble pasta shape and vegetable stall with these super kitsch baubles Pat Butcher (RIP) would be proud of.
They just make me smile (the models not so much).
I’m sure the highstreet will be awash with similar treats soon and mothers will finally be able to wear their little darlings pasta necklace offerings with pride and be on trend – when has that ever happened? If you can’t wait here is a simple step by step guide to making your own … They take about 15 minutes to make and are super cheap. I got my vegetable beads from The London Bead Shop and all my findings and general jewellery goodies from the wonder that is Hobbycraft.
