This Jewelry Designer Makes Pasta Necklaces Look Insanely Cool

00-lede-AnnaPiercePasta

Despite what your mother may have told you when you were four years old, pasta necklaces are not always beautiful. They make noise when you move, they crack easily, and they can smell like stale dough. Yet despite the genre’s preschool association, New York–based designer Anna Pierce sees something different about strands of farfalle and bow tie noodles. “The owner of a pasta necklace needs to take care of it,” she explains. “This speaks to the preciousness of jewelry as a medium, without the preciousness of the actual material.” Pasta is just one of the unexpected materials Pierce works with. Others include latex, deadstock fabric, and industrial grommets. As she notes, “materials inherently dictate my designs, as I’m interested in creating value with unconventional items that are often ephemeral, unlike the typical precious metal and gemstone.”

Pierce graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 and began collaborating with her fashion designer friend Rafaella Hanley of Lou Dallas, whose collections Pierce has made jewelry for for three seasons and counting. Aside from her signature sculptural pasta necklaces, Pierce has also created a series of corsets, chokers, and bracelets inspired by what she describes as “a fictitious image of a doctor diagnosing a Victorian woman with a syndrome caused by excessive luxury.” All are sold exclusively at Planet X in lower Manhattan. “Each piece is named after Victorian slang words all beginning with the letter L—lemoncholy, lallygagging, lapwing, and lolliker—as I find this one of the more seductive sounds of the alphabet,” Pierce explains. Her process and aesthetic may skew childlike and playful, but there’s nothing infantile about her work. In fact, her eccentric pasta necklaces are adornments that any chic grown-up can wear with pride.

DIY Dolce & Gabbana Pasta Earrings

 I remember this Spring 2012 Collection of  Dolce & Gabbana they express their huge appetite for life (and Italy) with their  Dresses printed with eggplants, tomatoes and hot peppers sauntered down the runway, Sophia Loren was heard singing the ever-so-cliché “Mambo Italiano”! Pasta earrings and accessories!? What a molto bene DIY! With just a quick trip to the supermarket and bead store, these kitschy but totally fun pasta earrings are a cinch to make.
dgearrings121You’ll need:

several pieces of bow-tie (farfalla) pasta
a pair of flat earring posts or earwires
2 1.5″ eye pins
14-16 brass charms
a few black beads
10 jump rings
2 pliers
a drill
a 5/64″ drill bit
glue

dgearrings21

The first step is to drill holes into the pasta. Gently drill a hole into the two bottom tips of the bow-tie. Don’t worry if some chip – you’ll have a whole box to work with! After the edges are drilled, drill a hole through the center of the bow-tie. Make a few extra pieces of pasta in case any break during assembly.

Start assembling from the top by adding 3 jump rings to the bottom of the first charm. Attach an eye pin.

Thread the pin through the top of the pasta. Slide a bead onto the pin.

To create a wire wrapped loop, cinch the pliers at the base of the bead. Make a 90° bend in the wire to the left. Then wrap the wire around the right side of the pliers to create a loop. Pull the pliers out, pinch the loop, and tightly wind the wire clockwise around the base of the loop one or two times.

Using wire cutters, trim away any extra wire. There are now three places to attach charms.

Connect the charms in any pattern or sequence using jump rings.

An optional step is to glue little black beads to the middle of the charms. Glue the flat post to the backside of the top of the earring.

Repeat the steps for the 2nd earring and your pair is finished! Fun, right?

Quote inspiration by Cara Delevingne.

I always feel that life can teach you how to act. I’m always looking at life through other people’s eyes. By feeling empathy. And I do feel that I am constantly learning.

You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.

Stop trying to define who you are and just be.

Don’t worry, be happy! Embrace your weirdness.

The energy you give off is the energy you receive. I really think that, so I’m always myself – JUMPING, dancing, singing around, trying to cheer everybody up.
