Red “Spider” 45 Record Adapter Earrings

Regular price $20.00

I made these earrings using red spider adapters that I found at the What Cheer Flea Market.  They are marked “45 R.P.M” with a number on one side (one adapter is marked “39” & the other “41”), & “Made in USA” on the other side.  45 record adapters are small plastic or metal inserts that goes in the middle of a 45 rpm record so it can be played on the LP or 33 1/3 rpm size spindle of a turntable.   The spider adapter was prevalent in the 1960s. The earrings measure just over 1.75” from the base of the earring wires, which are silvertone.
