Create

The main reason I started making jewelry a few years ago (before I started my Etsy shop) was because I could picture the jewelry I wanted that was my style but couldn’t find it in physical shops or online. I experimented with several different methods, designs, materials, suppliers, etc and through lots of trial and error and google, was able to design and create the pieces I was looking for. While my work needs a lot of practice and work, it makes me happy to be able to turn my vision into an actual product.

Here are a few new earrings I’ve been experimenting with – my first experiment with wire hoop earrings. The top pair has details of tiny gold geometric seed beads. The bottom pictures are similar design with a leftover herkimer diamond (from a necklace I made) paired with the same gold seed beads as the top pair of earrings. I’m pleasantly surprised with how they turned out and that all my tinkering and manipulating the wire turned out ok 😉

  1. Love these earrings – they’re so fun! I had a similar reason for starting to design jewelry about 15 years ago – having all these ideas and not seeing the exact interpretation of them. I taught myself and enjoy teaching my jewelry design students too – it’s such an amazing experience wearing and getting complements on something you’ve created yourself! Can’t wait more of your designs 🙂

  2. I love these earrings. Even more the reason why you began this journey. It seems that our generation is moving more towards creating what we can’t find instead of settling for the norm.
