Saturday’s Latest: Mod Ice Cream and the latest from the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team

On this week’s Saturday’s Latest, we take a peek at Mod Ice Cream, which makes some very cool and super fun earrings perfect for a bride or as bridesmaid gifts to coordinate with your sleek color filled fete.

“So you are probably wondering where I got this name? Well after I made a few of these lil’ beauties and put a pair I made for myself in my ears, I realized they looked like the greatest treat ever created, ICE CREAM of course! So they are modern scoops of ice cream to decorate your cute ears!”

“I got started about 3 years ago making wire wrap earrings, and beaded earrings, but nothing was selling and I was overwhelmed with setting a price range. One day I was dilly dallying in one of my Graphic Design classes ( I believe it was Typography ) and I had a bunch of prismacolor pencils and started drawing lil circles all over the place…I loved the look and thought they looked like confetti! So a few classes later I was dilly dallying again and started cutting them out with exacto knives and realized they looked like those fun stick on earrings we all had when we were like 5! I started researching materials that I could use to create earrings (again while in class, I am a horrible student), I came across resin and started my trial and error process. The earrings come in two different materials: first is a prisma color pencil/ marker that I color on sturdy sketch paper and then cut out with crafting punches, which allows me to keep the prices in a low $5 price range. Second I now work with clay and higher end materials to create a much better earring and yet still a fun low price, around $7! I hate over priced earrings, so I would never have it in me to sell them at a high price! I am currently working on a larger size and hope to get these up SOON! I love creating fun colorful works of art that you can wear in any situation, and that make an awesome gift for a great pal! Being on Etsy has allowed me to mail packages of creative love all over the world, and virtually meet some amazing people, not to mention I find it as one heck of a relaxing therapy.”
