miki and nora

These jacks earrings by local artist Miki and Nora are probably some of my favorite earrings.  Ever.  I bought them here in Madison this winter and they've been in heavy rotation ever since.   They wear a little bit vintage, a little bit tough, a little bit 50s elegant, and a little bit punk.  I don't know how they manage to do all that, when they're basically jacks, but I try not to question these magical design moments.  Lucky for you guys, you don't have to come to Wisconsin to get your own Miki and Nora pieces; just head over to her store on etsy.  Here's some of my favorites, including the cone earrings which I think I will have to pick up before I leave town (here they have them in oxidized silver rather than just the antique gold finish available on etsy.  Sorry for the rest of the world, cause in gunmetal they are absolutely perfect).


  1. These shapes are so striking/elegant/edgy. I'm absolutely loving the spike earrings in gold!
