Yellow Queenie Earrings by Jenna O'Brien.
Aretha is a handmade enamelled Queenie earring in a bright yellow with multi coloured glass detailing.
Named after the Queen of Soul herself, the Aretha earrings are the ones to wear when you want to live big! When you want to make the world sit up and take notice. When you want some R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!
"When Ms. Franklin sang "Respect" the Otis Redding song that became her signature, it was never just about how a woman wanted to be greeted by a spouse coming home from work. It was a demand for equality and freedom and a harbinger of feminism, carried by a voice that would accept nothing less" from the New York Times obituary here.
Aretha is the one to wear when you want to feel spectacular!
Being the Queen is not all about singing, and being a diva is not all about singing. It has much to do with your service to people. And your social contributions to your community and your civic contributions as well.
You cannot define a person on just one thing. You can’t just forget all these wonderful and good things that a person has done because one thing didn’t come off the way you thought it should come off.
