It’s been (cough, cough) twenty years, but I still haven’t outgrown my adoration for skateboards and the guys who ride them. Teenage infatuations die hard.
Unfortunately I’m too old to plaster Tony Hawk posters on my living room walls, which is why I’m so enamored of these earrings made from old skateboards found at BTC Elements. Bruised and battered decks are carved into sweeping wooden hoops – a perfectly elegant way to wax nostalgic. Certainly more elegant than jumping into a mosh pit.
I only wish that Portland designer Lindsay Jo Holmes would allow buyers to select earrings based on the brand of the board, instead of color combinations. I can’t be the only former skate betty who’d love to have Christian Hosoi dangling from her ears, right? –Julie
