My kids all inherited my geek leanings, and naturally their spouses and partners share those tastes too. I threw together a quick pair of earrings for my daughter-in-love today. She’s a sci-fi/fantasy author and something of a purist, so I worried a little about the combination of two different symbols (Rebel Alliance and Jedi Order), but I liked the artsiness of it, so I took a chance. It turns out it’s just fine, but I won’t try to reproduce her very technical explanation of why; I’m just glad she liked it!
I forgot to take a photo of the final version, but here’s one of the initial prototype. The final version was done in PG red oak hardwood and had slightly thicker loops at the top where I attached the ear wires—this one actually seemed pretty sturdy, but I worried it might not hold up with wear.
