The use of this link as an earring component is unexpected, and totally fun. The links look beautiful suspended in the frames, which mimic the effect of the circular golden halo we often see in painted depictions of the Virgin Mary. The name of the “Our Lady” links is in reference to Our Lady of… Continue reading Our Lady Earrings | DIY Tutorial

We love these earrings for their innovative use of the TierraCast sliders. We don’t normally look at a slider and think that would make a great earring!, but we’re glad someone did! These earrings are eye-catching and flashy, and these crystals catch light and glimmer at almost every angle. This tutorial is written for the Blue/Silver color… Continue reading Swarovski Deco Drop Earrings
I can hardly believe its been ten years but then when I start looking back, I can see and feel it more. Thinking back about all the people who have worked with me, some still in my life and in the shop, some friends that have remained close, and some who have gone on to… Continue reading Happy Birthday to Us!
It’s been a while since we’ve done a ring tutorial here, and it’s about time for another one. The rings we’re showing you today are super easy, and extra adorable. We’ll be using Nunn Design’s Itsy Bezel rings, and you have the option of using either a diminutive button, or a two-hole cabochon, (or whatever you might have on hand to fill the bezel. Crystal Clay gives more options too.) Both fit perfectly in the Ring bezel!
These rings look great on their own, but I think they’re even better when stacked, or when you wear multiple rings at once, and another option is to wear them on a chain instead of your fingers.
I love affirmation jewelry because it makes a great gift that’s both heartfelt and wearable. It sends a warm message for everyone to see, and it’s also just plain cute! I usually only think to put word charms on bracelets and necklaces, so this use of them was a nice way to switch things up… Continue reading Affirmation Earrings | DIY Tutorial

Bookmarks can also make the perfect… Continue reading Personalized Bookmarks | DIY Tutorial
These earrings remind me of being in my mom’s garden as a young child, and eating pea pods straight off the vine. It was the only way I could ever be convinced to eat my vegetables. Now, a mom myself, I wear these in my garden while picking peas with my daughter. The use of… Continue reading Peas In a Pod Earrings | DIY Tutorial
