Climbers and collars Pt. 1

As a jewelry designer, I'm always looking for new and interesting compositions in accessories. I get tired of the safe and done and look for something a little outside the box. When searching through my mother's "stash" of jewelry to find some gems for a NYE party, I came across a pair of vintage (maybe 50's or 60's) rhinestone ear climber earrings. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the ear climber think clip on earring that continue up the ear... almost elvish like (see photo). So edgy. I fell in love and decided I could rock it for the party. All night I kept getting so many compliments on them and I knew that the trend had to make a come back. I immediately started scouring my fashion outlets to find another couple of pairs to add to the collection! I found myself laughing because I'm always amazed how cyclical fashion tends to be. I'm looking at earrings from the 50's/60's in 2012 and describing them as edgy and a "new trend"? Cracks me up. Nevertheless, seeing how I adore classic concepts with a funky twist these earrings take the cake. What do you think of this trend? Would you incorporate ear climbers into your wardrobe?
