Absolutely gorgeous! I honestly thought the heart was going to be bigger but I don't think I would love these earrings as much as I do if they were any larger. They are perfect and make me very very happy. 😍 The owner of the shop is professional and kind. I have had no problems at all with the service or product. That's not true I fell asleep on the couch with these in and woke up with one missing, but found it quickly. I highly recommend these earrings.

Spring has sprung in north Texas! Walking pup in one of our favorite spots the other day, we were greeted by emerging pink blossom. Pink is such a soft feminine color, and works beautifully with gold, as in these elegant threader earrings...
Doo-dads and dangles! It's an uncommonly gray, damp day here in north Texas, so I'm making more minimalist mixed metal threader earrings, and ball cluster earring charms for my interchangeable wires...
A walk in the local nature reserve on Valentine's Day - and I saw some grass blown into a heart shape! Happy Valentine's... :)

About

WELCOME to Flaunt Designs hand made jewelry...

Inspired by life, created by hand.
Nature inspires me; organic forms, color and texture. I love taking little parts of our Earth - shimmering metal, lustrous pearls, a roughly hewn gemstone suffused with inner light and, lately, even hand felted natural wool dyed bright and beautiful colors - and using them in my work. Reassuring and elemental, wearing these pretty stones, metals and natural fibers against our skin is an act that connects us both to the natural world and to our ancestors, who have been adorning themselves in this way for millennia.

I am a "one girl" shop and design and hand craft all my Flaunt pieces. Thoughts become ideas which evolve into sketches, and finally tangible pieces which I create with my own two hands in my home studio near Dallas which, for some reason, the rest of the family refer to as "the spare bedroom". I buy some pre-cast charms, ready cut stones and beads, but source as many as possible from artisans who hand craft them, so that the end product I make is as unique as possible and still supports small production and individual artisans. I happily hammer ear wires on the sweetest, tiniest anvil you've ever met, wire wrap stones, and hand forge clasps, paddles and links. Apologies to my neighbors for the clammer of metal on metal, the smell of solder and of oxidation!

Follow me on Instagram! @lin_flaunt for works in progress, pictures of my sweet puppy, nature and life in general...

I also have a destash jewelry supplies shop at Taurii.etsy.com

Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share my work with you...

PS: Rascal the Chiweenie is on mail alert duty only, and does not touch the jewelry. He cheerfully guards our non-smoking household from sequacious squirrels and barmy bunnies:~)

CUSTOM ORDERS
I work via photos and Etsy conversations, not Email. I may need a non-refundable deposit to cover material costs if I do not have supplies in stock. **Please Note; I will not copy another artist's work.

METALS...
Sterling silver is 92.5% by weight silver + 7.5% other metal - often copper. Much of the sterling used in my ear wires is reclaimed or recycled metal from the USA, lessening impact on the environment.
Karen Hills tribe handcrafted fine silver from Thailand is 95 - 99% pure silver.
Gold filled is 1/20th by weight layer of 14K gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. Tarnish resistant, gentle on sensitive skin, it is a fine metal and doesn't flake off like gold plate.

JEWELRY CARE
Over time, sterling silver undergoes a natural oxidation process caused by exposure to air. To remove tarnish, use mild soap, warm water and a soft brush or cloth, or a gentle silver cleaning cloth from Flaunt or hobby stores. Avoid harsh abrasive silver polishes or chemical dips.
Avoid exposing jewelry to bleach or to chlorine in swimming pools / hot tubs or wearing pieces to swim, shower, exercise or sleep. Store gently cleaned, dry jewelry in separate little zip lock plastic bags to protect it from air and avoid entanglement. The worst place to keep jewelry is unprotected in a bathroom; high humidity speeds up tarnish.

FLAUNT..?
According to the Oxford English dictionary flaunt, as a verb, means "to display oneself or one's finery; show off, parade", a word of unknown origin in common use since the 16th century :)
