These are the most beautiful earrings I have ever owned or seen. I was going to order 4 more as gifts but she is taking a well deserved baby break! I can't wait to order more. I love how they aren't too big or too small!! I love these earring and feel so beautiful in them. As a bonus, no allergy to them as usually can wear many types of earrings. These ones are perfect. I'll be ordering more when she is back!!!!

Was easy to communicate with the seller. Very fast delivery. She was attentive to my special request to have both pairs in the same box . The packaging is adorable too. Would recommend!

These earrings are really cute and the size I was expecting. However, the backs are pretty terrible - they're so loose that both fell off within one day. Luckily I managed to save the earring both times, but now I will have to find new backs.

Hello, Darling!

My name is Carly Smith, and I’m the creator and designer of Darling Yes. We are a jewelry and illustration shop designed to delight. My husband Matthew and I work together, making greeting cards, paper goods, and jewelry. We recover selected ephemera and create original vintage-inspired pieces to create something new, while still embracing the past. We want to inspire you to tell your own stories, and tell them with wonder.

My brass and gold fill earrings and charms are handcrafted in my home workshop in downtown Ottawa, Canada. My greeting cards are hand drawn, original works. Both lines are inspired by vintage images, advertisements, and fragments from the past. I create beautiful, contemporary works that build on vintage themes to give them new life, and pass along to you.

❀Little Notions for Nostalgics. ❀

As a young girl I spent many summers at my family farm in rural Ontario. My grandfather collected odds and ends in an old bus, which had a fresh coat of paint over a layer of otherwise discarded metal. He kept many jars and containers filled with a collection of disused objects that he held on to ‘just in case’. During the hot summer afternoons, I would spend hours in the shade the bus provided, rediscovering old objects and making them new with my imagination. Those same feelings what I draw on to create my work.

Each piece of jewelry is handmade in-studio, and crafted with supplies and stampings manufactured in North America.Every greeting card is hand-drawn in studio and finished digitally, and printed locally in Ottawa.

I want to transport you from the everyday, with classic looks inspired by early twentieth century vintage artwork and designs. I take pride in the quality and craft of each piece, and make everything to order, and so each article is crafted especially for you.

❀ From my studio to your mailbox. ❀

I’m more than happy to ship to any location worldwide. All jewelry orders ship in bubble mailer to protect your order, hand packed in my studio, just for you. I want to bring a little bit of my home into yours with every order. Click here to view additional shipping information.

Darling Yes is committed to creations that are designed to delight, and want to transport you through time and place to an world of wonder, where you can tell your story.

Yours very truly,
