Practice makes perfect! I learned how to make jewelry through books, online tutorials, and lots of practice.

On October 16, 2017, a fire consumed my house and business. I evacuated with all but one cat, and the clothes on my back.

I had been planning to move, so luckily, I had most of my photos, and various odds and ends in storage... but the majority of my belongings - gone.

But as Christ has taught me, one must put one foot in front of the other, and carry on.

After losing all of my beads, charms, chain, wire, etc., I decided that now is the time to do what I love best - working with wire.

For the last two years Iโ€™ve been homeless with my pets. Why homeless? Because I didnโ€™t want to give up on my beloved animals, two whom have been with me from before the fire.

All French hooks, kidney ear wires, links, findings, and most of the chain at JC Heart, is created by my hand, using wire.

God bless you, and thank you for visiting.

๐™Ž๐™ž๐™ก๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง ๐™๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™š๐™™ is 5% or 10% silver. It is thicker than silver plate, and lasts up to 5 years when handled properly; i.e. cleaning. It tarnishes like sterling silver.

๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™Ž๐™ž๐™ก๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง is 92.5% silver and the core is copper hence the reason sterling tarnishes over time. But it can be cleaned.

๐˜ผ๐™ง๐™œ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ช๐™ข ๐™Ž๐™ž๐™ก๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง is 93.5% silver. Itโ€™s whiter and brighter than traditional sterling silver and has a built in anti-tarnish agent. When it tarnishes, simply wipe off with a polishing cloth or swifter sheet. You can even use your fingers - just rub them over the silver. Plus, Argentium silver is recycled silver.

The length of earrings will depend on your preference, but it also depends on the length of your hair.

Typically ladies with shorter hair, prefer their earrings to be 1 - 1 1/2โ€ or shorter in length. Whereas ladies with longer hair prefer longer earrings.

If youโ€™re unsure about the length of the earrings youโ€™re interested in buying, you can hang a string from your pierced hole(s) in your earlobe to see how long the earrings will be.

Or if you have a favorite pair of earrings, you can measure them to get a rough idea of how long you like your earrings to be.

If you see a pair of earrings you love, but theyโ€™re too long for you, message us and we can work together on how to create a pair thatโ€™s similar but shorter for you.

CHOKERS are 14โ€ to 16โ€ and fit snugly around your neck.

PRINCESS is 18โ€ and hangs to about your collarbone.

MATINEE is 20โ€ and will hang to just below your collarbone, whereas 22โ€ will drape to above your breast.

OPERA is 28โ€ to 34โ€ and hangs to about your navel. These can be wrapped around the neck twice.

ROPE is 40โ€ or longer and sits below your navel. These types of necklaces are usually wrapped around the neck a few times.

All of the necklaces at JC Heart Designs are measured with the clasp included. (This is not so with other jewelry businesses.)

If you have any bracelets you love, you should measure these and the length will give you a good estimate as to what size/length you prefer. However, the size of the beads will make a huge impact to the overall length. The larger the bead, the longer your bracelet needs to be.

To measure the diameter of your wrist, lay a string (not yarn), a tape measure or ruler on the underside of your wrist, and measure from left to right (or right to left.)

To measure the length of your wrist, use a string (not yarn) or tape measure and measure the circumference. Youโ€™ll want to add 1/4 to 1/2 inch so the bracelet will not be tight up against your wrist.

We will always disclose the size/length of bracelet along with what size wrist it fits.

Here at JC Heart, our convertible necklaces can be shortened into a necklace and anklet or bracelet, or worn as one long necklace. If thereโ€™s a pendant - it will be interchangeable so you can remove it and use it with another necklace or as a zipper pull.

If our bracelets have toggle clasps, and you have another necklace with a similar toggle clasp - you can wear them together. This is why we switched over to toggle clasps on a lot of our jewelry to make it interchangeable.

You can string a bunch of bracelets together to make one long necklace. ๐Ÿ™‚

We also offer stainless steel fishhooks, lever backs and post ear wires.

Some of our earrings are made with iron fishhook findings.

โŒ AVOID WATER - No jacuzzis, pools, oceans, baths, or showers
โŒ AVOID VIGOROUS ACTIVITIES - perspiration can ruin your gemstones
โŒ AVOID CHEMICALS, LOTIONS, OILS - Dress, apply your makeup, perfume, style your hair and then put on your jewelry
โŒ AVOID HARSH HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS - Donโ€™t clean with your jewelry on; tell your significant other that s/he needs to clean. ๐Ÿ˜‰
โŒ DONโ€™T GO TO BED with your JEWELRY on. Take it off and place it in its sealed bag, in your jewelry box, away from sunlight. Store in a cool, dark place. Wrap in cloth to keep gemstones safe.

See care instructions for gemstone cleaning. If unsure: use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe down gemstones. Some gemstones cannot be submerged in water - they will disintegrate.
