Absolutely beautiful, sparkly earrings! These are suitable for daily wear or for dressing up a bit. The beautiful, well-cut stones are between blue and green, so will go with many things. Outstanding communication from the seller, with rapid, safe shipping (including some unexpected, thoughtful gifts). I'm an extremely happy buyer who is very likely to buy from this shop again. I highly recommend this artisan's work!
Silence is golden (& silver & all things with color!) ...
I began crafting jewelry as a hobby -- wire wrapping was basically a therapy for me, giving me the freedom to direct all my pent up frustration and energy into something creative and beautiful. After many years of perfecting my technique(s), I decided to open my store here on Etsy.
I try to design things that are versatile so you can enjoy wearing them from day to night. When I worked in the corporate industry, I held a 9-5 job as a legal secretary, so I totally appreciate the whole "uptown/downtown" thing with respect to wearing something to work during the day & then heading out for dinner or a night of fun afterwards and being appropriately accessorized.
Classic in style and superior quality in gemstones & findings always takes precedence in all of my designs.
I don't design "big & bold" ... I try to keep things simple ...I'm partial to the saying, "sometimes less is more" .
I tell everyone, "wear it, love it, own it" ... so, sit back and relax, shop & enjoy – cheers!

Additional policies and FAQs
I take close up photographs to show the quality and craftmanship of my work, and take care in naming the various components, describing the color and measurements as accurately as possible. Please keep in mind that colors can appear different on different monitors and images may appear larger due to the photography.
All of my jewelry is made with precious and semi-precious gemstone beads, freshwater pearls, and gold-filled or sterling silver elements. I try to purchase the best quality beads for the most affordable price and strive to keep prices of my pieces affordable. Natural gemstones often have natural inclusions or marks, which I think adds to the uniqueness of the individual piece.
NOTES on the care and maintenance
The better you care for and store your jewelry pieces, the longer they will last. Avoid swimming, sleeping or bathing while wearing them. Sterling silver pieces will be less likely to tarnish if you store them in an airtight container. Keep in mind that jewelry pieces may knot or tangle if they are mixed with other pieces or otherwise not stored carefully, and wire-wrapping can become dislodged if snagged when putting on or taking off clothing.
