Let's Do the Twist


About this design:

Anybody remember Chubby Checker? I was quite young, that was my sister's era! I made these earrings to coordinate with my Spring Time bracelet. Had left over twisted wire I wanted to use.

Components:

20ga pink wire, Swarovski crystal bicones 4mm

    Let’s twist again, like we did last summer…. Let’s twist again, like we did last year!!! Yep, I used to love T.V. Bandstand, and Saturday at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. Ahhh, those old days. These are really cute and with the bracelet, yummy – what a great set. Love that pink.

    Isn’t that pink wire fabulous? These are so wonderfully funky, Linda! I used to watch Chubby Checker on American Bandstand, too! (Boy, that really dates us, huh?)

    Now I have to go find your bracelet that these go with…

    Can I go cruising with you in your ’55 yellow Belair with a 283? We’d be dashing! ;-)

    Sure Sue, where do you want to go? I drove the ’55 until my Dad gave me his ’66 Malibu with a 302 V8. That was a cool car too. My hubby tried to restore the ’55 in the mid ’70′s, but having little ones we couldn’t afford all the replacement body parts. It still run beautifully when he sold it. I miss “Lydabelle”!

    Ah, sweet memories. The twist was POPULAR the first year I taught school. Some of my art students taught me how to do it at the first school dance that year. :)

    BTW the “Twist” earrings are really great. :)
