1984 - Graduation day at last! I was already in my 30’s, a single mom with two children when I decided to become a student at California State University, Dominguez Hills in Carson California. In my senior year of college when I needed to complete an internship, I applied to all the television stations in Los Angeles. Instead of an internship, ABC-TV offered me a full-time job. I stayed nearly 20 years.
The next year, 1985, I started working in the film department. I loved the smooth texture and rich color saturation of the 35mm film that was in abundance in the film editing bays. Here I am, in blue, wearing a piece of film on an ear wire, the first form of film earrings.
My earrings have gone a long way from a simple piece of film on an ear wire. Pictured: one happy customer wearing a Film Star pair.

With Film at 11

You don't have to be a star to look like one. The earrings are available at Exotique on Main Street, Durham, NC.
