I was walking across 125th Street in Harlem the other day and noticed a guy standing outside of a store, wearing really surprising earrings in one ear. “Wow, cool earrings” I said, “Did you make them?”

“Yeah, and they’ve got a story…”  He said with a smile. He told me he dreamed them, dreamed of earrings made of mailbox keys, etched with his astrological sign, Aries.  So, he took a couple of mailbox keys to a jeweler and had them etched…in silver.

He was really proud of them.

…Original and beautiful, with a backstory I never would have guessed..earrings-dtl1.

Thanks Fuad (sp)!
