You Heard It Here First

Keep one ear to the grounded side of your personality with Susan Gould's playful word earrings. Handmade drops magnified with glass insets spell a fun-loving zinger between both lobes: "Trust Me" (right ear), "I'm Normal" (left ear). Wear them as cheeky affirmations, or as an ironic one-liner.

Nickel-free, silver plated brass. Handmade in San Francisco.

Susan Gould

Susan Gould is a self-taught artist who began her company, Shadowbox Art, 15 years ago out of a desire for more control in her life and a chance to spread her creative wings. Her work includes necklaces, earrings and bracelets that are playful, cheeky and display tiny worlds of sculpted metaphor within the glass.

Gould was first captivated by shadowboxes and dioramas when she visited the Museum of Science in Boston at age 6. She thought, "If this is a job, I want it." Her desire to create the imaginary moment that exists in shadowboxes didn't take off right away, and she dabbled in English, typesetting, paste-up art and graphic design before starting her own line of products.

Born in Boston, but now residing in San Francisco, Gould has always had a love for inventing, designing and playful, creative expression. She says if she weren't an artist she would be an inventor, teacher or animal trainer.

            I live these earrings, I have been wanting them a long time just didn't want to spend the money but had a coupon discount so went for it for myself. I love a good sense of humor and this shows my personality well, besides the colors are great and the design.

              Comments about TRUST ME, I'M NORMAL EARRINGS:

              These earrings are fun and draw positive comments. One reads "Trust Me" and the other "I'm Normal". They're in the style of old typewriter keys, so they're interesting in a number of ways. The hanging wire is long enough that the earrings don't come off, even if you're active, nor are they overly heavy.

              I like these very much.
