Cute Lightning bolt hoops to sport your love for glam rock legend David Bowie! These sterling silver or 14k gold filled hoops feature a mini dangling lightning bolt inspired by Bowie’s character Aladdin Sane.
In 1973, Bowie released the album Aladdin Sane, as a wordplay for “a lad insane”, as a transition from his Ziggy Stardust era. On the popular album cover he has a lightning bolt painted across his face in red and blue. The earrings are a tribute to the legendary artist and will make a perfect gift to all his fans.
I hand enameled the mini bolts dangling from the hoops in coral and turquoise blue. They are true to the original colors of the iconic make up.
the hoops alone are 11/16 of an inch wide, that is approximately 1,7 cm. They are in 14k gold filled and will be very well tolerated by even the most sensitive ears. The mini bolts are about half an inch high and are made out of 14k gold micron plated bronze.
the hoops alone are 3/4 of an inch wide, that is approximately 1,8 cm. They are in 925 sterling silver and will be very well tolerated by sensitive ears. The mini bolts are about half an inch high and are made out of sterling silver as well.
Also in the Bowie collection, you will find the lightning bolt necklace.
