The Buckeye Bead The Ohio State University Script Oh-Io Dangle Earrings
Here is the design that really built The Buckeye Bead... I was trying to make the Script Ohio out of wire and into a pendant. I kept messing up the "H" to the "I". Since I already made a bunch of "OH's", I then made an "IO". The natural look was to wear one in each ear… and they sold like nothing I had ever made before! This design is made from a mold taken directly from one of my original handmade wire designs. Since they are one solid piece, they will remain in the shape of the Ohio even when they get caught in your hair or clothes! The metal is lead, cadmium and nickel free and the ear wires are made from surgical stainless steel which make these an ideal pair of earrings for anyone to wear! This is an Officially Licensed Product by The Ohio State University.
