The always bold -- when it comes to her jewelry and fashion choices-- R&B singer Erykah Badu says that her huge gold earrings are not just something she bought: the styles are called Baduwings and Earwings and they're the centerpiece of Funktional Art, her first-ever line of jewelry. The earrings have been sold at her merch booth, but you need not attend a Badu show in order to nab some snazzy new earrings. The line is also available via erykahbadu.com beginning in late-August or September. Badu says that she has already made arrangements to sell them in boutiques in Chicago, Dallas, New York, London and Paris. Many singers make the transition to the design world - hello, Gwen Stefani- so it's no surprise that Badu is doing it too.
"It's the beginning of a new thing for me," she says of the jewelry line. "I'm working with different designers to come up with things that fit me and fit the fans who support me and fit the women who feel free and can fly." You can fly, with Funktional Art dangling from your lobes, while you rock a style similar to Miss Badu.
