EARRINGS & CREATIVE WRITING

Pinions is a creative company. When I'm not making earrings I'm writing – either journalistic texts or fiction. I mostly write in Swedish and Finnish, but luckily my earrings speak all the languages.

Everything started with me buying a pair of cork earrings a few years ago at an art & crafts market in Helsinki, Finland. At some point I lost one of the earrings and tried to find similar ones, without any success.

In the fall 2014 I finally made a pair for myself and posted a photo of them on Instagram. I got so many likes and nice comments, so I thought I might as well start making some more – there might be more people out there who would like champagne earrings.

WHY IS IT CALLED PINIONS?

For half my life my friends have been calling me Kugge, which leads to the Swedish word kugghjul – cogwheel. When thinking about the company name I found out that a pinion is a small cogwheel or spindle engaging with a large cogwheel. So the name also symbolizes all the wheels constantly turning in my head, trying to come up with new ideas.

SHOP CHAMPAGNE EARRINGS & MORE

Buy my earrings from my Etsy-shop – there you can find the Moet & cava corks. If you're interested in any of the other models contact me on michaela@pinions.fi. The champagne corks are recycled, the hooks are nickel free steel. All products can be shipped anywhere in the world. One pair is 12 euros + shipping. Happy shopping!
