Just what I wanted! Shipped quickly, packaged well for shipping and for gift giving. (It was a gift for me, though.) Thank you!

Love these earrings. They are light and dainty. This is my second pair (I lost one while wearing a bike helmet, so I had to order a 2nd pair). They are reasonably priced and I get compliments all the time.

About

simple things in a complex world..

in the beginning, there were beads.. but i wanted more- i wanted to make the findings the beads were hanging from... so i went to Thundering Seas in Oregon for a bit to learn the basics of silversmithing, and then i was hooked..

I've been taking classes locally since 1996 (with a break for birthing babies for a few years) and enjoy learning new techniques as well as "tips and tricks" from my instructors.

all items are handmade by my own two hands

thanks for stopping by!

as i do my part to "clean up" the earth for my day-job, i'm glad to be able to use "Recycled Silver" in my pieces. the forged sterling silver metals i buy come from pre-produced sources that have been refined down to their purest forms and forged into new clean metal.

The mining of most new precious metals, including silver, negatively impacts the environment and cultures surrounding mines. my silver comes from 100% pre-produced sources so that we can help to minimize our effect on the environment and promote a healthier world. in other words, it is all recycled silver!
