The inspiration behind this piece
Joan Crawford was an enchanting actress who transitioned from silent films to talkies. She embraced relatable roles that would connect with a broad audience. In her youth, she played the glamourous, easy-going, flapper of the 1920s. In the 30’s she took on the archetype of the modern-day working girl. Later in her career, she sought out layered, complex characters ranging from the older woman who embarks on an affair with a younger man, Humoresque (1946), to that of a faded actress who’s tortured by her older sister, What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962).
Her stardom was mainly due to her belief in her self and her efforts to stand out through strategic bouts of self-promotion. Early in her career, her strategy included attending dances and nightclubs around Hollywood each evening. Here she took part in and won dance competitions with her performances of the Charleston and the Black Bottom. Her promotional efforts were not in vain, given that in 1925 she was cast in Edmund Goulding’s, Sally, Irene, and Mary.
Later in her career, she embarked on more periods of self-promotions, given that her stardom ebbed and flowed with the demands of Hollywood.
She was a resilient woman that was not afraid to adapt and work hard to land the part.
In this interview, by a bit of a rubbish interviewer, we get a first-hand look at her graceful presence.
Joan Crawford’s boldness and determination are the inspiration behind these handmade beaded earrings with Swarovski Crystal accents.
These handmade beaded crystal earrings are for the woman who is unafraid to go after what she wants, and she does so on her own terms. Her mantra is: I can & I will.
If you are unafraid of making a splash wherever you go, you will love these dazzling beaded earrings with Swarovski Crystal accents.
If you’re looking for earrings that are a bit more subdued, I think you’ll love either the Claudette Silver Pearl Hoop Earrings or the Clara Small Silver Pearl Hoop Earrings as they tend to be quite popular choices for the girl who prefers a more classic piece.
