Dangly earrings: my obsession

I love what my father calls dingly danglies: earrings that flash & sparkle through my hair. My main criteria is price: I lose one of every pair I ever buy. Three singles on my Christmas trip to London alone. So, beyond thrilled to discover a stand at the back of the ground floor of ABC Carpet & Home selling dozens of these papier mache Indian earrings for between $20 & $30. You can also pick them up in Manhattan in the Indian shops around Murray Hill in the East 30s, and in Jackson Heights in Queens where they are definitely cheaper, but not quite as easy to get to as Union Square. This pair were from Banana Republic last November for about $24. I do think Banana's jewellery is fantastic. Great prices and unusual too.
