Mardi Gras Baby (4mm beads)
This earring is an ode to the tradition of King Cake served during the Mardi Gras season in New Orleans, LA. Representation matters, so when we saw these brown King Cake babies, we had to create something special for this quarantined Mardi Gras of 2021. As New Orleanians, we’re known for bouncing back from storms and other trials! Though parades won’t go forth as usual and live music is canceled as well, we’re going to represent and celebrate on Zoom, safely with good food within our bubbles, and tour the beautifully decorated “house floats” on homes designed by float artists, who could not work this year on Mardi Gras floats!
Earrings feature: gold plated ear wires, crystal cut 4mm beads in royal purple, green and yellow, and a jumbo plastic King Cake baby crowned with a blinged out rondelle.
Finished earring, excluding wire is one and three quarters inches (1 3/4”) long and each only weighs .21 ounces. Handmade in house!
Happy Mardi Gras!
