Melanie, one of our crack bookstore staffers at Vertigo, has other talents besides shelving books alphabetically and suggesting a good mystery title for your cousin Ralph who likes all things Swedish. Melanie is also a skilled carver of Emu eggs, crafting beautifully designed earrings you won’t find anywhere else. The eggs’ surface has a rich, dark green color that gives way to a light blue layer and then a white layer. Much thicker than the egg you cracked for this morning’s breakfast, Emu earrings are very durable and suitable for everyday wear. We have a nice selection for you to choose from, all priced at $15.00.
