I had this idea that I would start a earring collection of the highest stone quality and name each piece after someone I honor in my life. My reality came true when I took a trip to the city recently and bought a ton of turquoise and howlite beads from Nevada and Amazonite beads from Peru. I also bought some sterling silver findings to complete my earring designs.
The first design I made was a pair of Turquoise and Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Earrings named “Lisa.” I named them after my mom who adores turquoise more than any woman I know. She gave me a ton of turquoise rings and Indian inspired earrings when I was younger. My mom and dad were always giving me new jewelry to wear. My dad was in the jewelry business for a while and we use to put together earring sets at the dinner table. Then I would get to pick out my favorite designs and all my friends would be in awe over my earrings since they had never seen anything that unique. From as far as I can remember, I have had an eye for the unique, and out-of-the-ordinary was beautiful to me.
I bead and make earrings, necklaces and bracelets daily and you can always catch a new design on my Etsy web site. If there is anything you like or have a special idea of your own and want me to make it, I can do that too. Just contact me on Etsy or send me a message on Facebook. My eyes are open to the world! I will keep you updated on my shopping excursions and maybe one day we’ll take a trip together! Check my Meetup group for trips to the city!
