I bought those earrings for a gift but I just had to keep them for myself . I get compliments every time I wear them.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

I know, I know, it may seem cliché to think of hearts and love around Valentine’s Day but I can’t help it.
I wanted to make at least a few new things with hearts because it really is a lovely symbol to remind you of what and who you love.
Love comes to us in so many different ways.
- Romantic love
- Love of family and friends
- Loving what you do
- A passion for life
- Love for our pets
- Spiritual love
- Love for a cause
I’ll be sharing some new pieces inspired by love over the next few weeks.
I never realized that I don’t really worry about “matching” earrings because
I often wear things that coordinate rather than an exact match.
It might be a similar color or shape or texture that just “goes” with the other jewelry.
However, now that I know that a lot of people do want a specific match and I will be creating more sets in the future.
I had one customer who bought the Love and Luxury necklace
and really wanted matching earrings, with the exact same look.
That was more of a challenge than I expected because the technique
I used to make the necklace just didn’t work well for earrings.
And I didn’t have enough of the same red beads.
I ended up using a woven method to create the bronze wire hoops and
added red-orange and purple crystals that matched the color of the necklace,
but had the right scale for the earrings.
I accepted the challenge and she likes her new matching earrings.
It was a happy ending.
