Saw this last year AFTER Txsgiving and so happy & relieved to have found it again. Absolutely exquisite, a small work of art, beautiful craftsmanship and well wrapped. Prompt shipping too. Couldn't be more pleased!

These earrings are so amazingly cute! I placed a custom order, and Carol was not only able to create the earrings in blue, but made 7 pairs and got them to me really quickly. Thanks again, Carol! I'll keep IndigoLimes on my list for future gifts!

About

I just keep moving forward.

My shop grew out of despair. Just when I thought I had everything, I lost the love of my life. In the aftermath, I had to be there for two small children, a full time job, a house, and myself, too! The one thing that I saw clearly during those dark days was that I needed to wear earrings. Why earrings? I don't know. But if I found myself without a pair of earrings, I felt, well, naked.

Now there were only so many pairs of earrings that I found appealing all those years ago. So I began to make my own. No one taught me. It was trial and error and I asked a lot of questions. I made a lot of mistakes. I took my inspiration from my growing children and the nature walks we took, the places we visited, the colors we explored together.

And then one day a friend said she liked my earrings. She asked where I bought them. Proudly, I told her that I had made them! She suggested that I begin selling what I made. And so I did.

I still make a lot of mistakes. I am still a linear-thinking person trapped in a disorganized person's body. I still get distracted by a lot of shiny and sparkly things. But it is amazing what reserves we discover within ourselves.

    I have the great good fortune to be living roughly where I want, roughly how I want, and doing what I love. And this is my second act!
