I am thrilled to be making jewelry for one of my favorite figure skaters!
But so far I have advised her to wear my jewelry only off the ice, because I am not positive it will not come apart under the high speed of spinning in the air and on the ice.
Maybe I am being over-cautious – after all, their costumes are covered in hand-sewn crystals – but if a skater’s blade catches on something on the ice, it could cause an injury or ruin a performance.
A few days ago I watched an Olympic swimmer lose a stud earring in the pool.
How can I make sure this does not happen with my jewelry?
