These stud earrings feature Lake Merritt – The Jewel of Oakland. We inlay blue woolen felt is into a bamboo outline of the lake and then attach a sterling silver earring stud post.
Maybe the lake is where you get your workout with the Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders. Or maybe you do laps around it on your bike. Or play hacky sack in the grass, or do acrobatics near the Pergola. (By the way, did you know that is what it is called?) Or do you take your kids to Fairyland? Or maybe you take yourself to Faryland for Grownups once a year (if you’re lucky enough to get tickets). And yeah, you’ve been meaning to make it to check out the bonsai garden. Or did some bird watching by that geodesic dome. Or had bloody marys at the Lake Chalet. Or watched someone’s wedding by the pagoda.
Either way, it’s part of what makes Oakland Oakland, and we’ve put it onto a small stud earring for you. We make them out of sustainable bamboo and 100% wool felt.
The stud is about 2/3 the size of the end of a chapstick tube.
