My Earrings are on the Front Page of Etsy Today!

Pin It Organic Hoop Earrings with Carnelian Stones

I have made a series of these "Organic Hoop Earrings" over the past few weeks and am really pleased with them.

I have been wanting to do more with wire and metal and this was a good place to start. I used sterling silver wire to handforge these hoops. I then hammered them for strength and texture. I love the visible bumps and divots in the metal (yes...it was intentional!) On this particular pair I oxidized the metal and brushed the hoops for an antique finish.

Check out some of the other handforged hoops in my shop!

Holidays Update: Gift Guides

Pin It
I have been more busy than I had expected this holiday season. Fortunately, Etsy has given me an early Christmas present this year by featuring my jewelry in their gift guide sections! In ealrier posts I had noted that two of my items were featured this year: "Tweet Earrings" and "Flirty Floral Necklace".

The "Flirty Floral Necklace" has been so popular that I have sold a dozen of them just in the past month! Thanks Etsy!

I have also been featured in other gift guides this holiday season. The Mama Speaks Holiday Gift Guide and the Indie Collective Holiday Shopping Guide.
