The heart earrings are my second purchase from Cathy. Both pairs are absolutely beautiful! I can't imagine the time and patience it takes to make such beauties. I have a Mother's Pendent ordered for my daughter for her birthdsy. Can't wait to see it! How much more personalized can you get? You will not be disappointed it any jewelry you get from Cathy!

About

Wire Wrapped Jewelry that brings out your beauty and makes you smile.

From as far back as I can remember, I have always enjoyed creating. It is a big part of who I am. When I was young, I loved to color and draw. Then in my teenage years, I enjoyed writing poetry. I then turned my poetry into lyrics and begin playing guitar and creating music. About 8 to 10 years ago, I began collecting gemstones and decided I wanted to do something with these gemstones besides having them collect dust in a drawer. That is when I discovered Dale "Cougar" Armstrong and she changed my life. I began watching and learning from her DVD's and book and was hooked on wire-wrapping. I enjoy creating pieces of jewelry that bring people joy. Creating is my passion and making jewelry helps keep that passion alive.

    I truly enjoy the art of creating through wire-wrapping and knowing I am making something that will be worn for years to come, and passed on to the next generations. I am fascinated by the natural beauty God gave us in gemstones.

Welcome to my Etsy shop. I hope you can see the love I have for making jewelry by viewing my creations. I began Whitten Jewelry Creations with the hope that I could create pieces that would enhance how a woman feels and looks. My goal is to create one-of-a-kind quality pieces with real precious metals and gemstones. These are pieces that are made to last a lifetime. I have always been a perfectionist, so I definitely pay attention to detail. I welcome any custom pieces you would like for me to create. Ultimately, if you are looking for fashion jewelry that is very inexpensive, this may not be the store for you. But if you are looking for pieces made with real sterling silver and 14 kt gold filled wire to add to your fine jewelry collection, I would appreciate your business and referrals very much. You can contact me anytime with comments, suggestions, or a custom piece quote on the Etsy Conversation tab. I look forward to having you as a satisfied, happy customer.

Additional policies and FAQs
You can be assured that the items I use for each piece of jewelry made are listed and are accurate. If I use sterling silver or 14 kt gold filled wire, it will be listed. I believe in honesty and integrity. It is how I have built my life and my jewelry business. I realize you do not know me and are ordering online, so you want to be assured that you are being treated fairly. I feel this is important to mention. With wire wrapped jewelry, you may be wondering how to properly clean. If you have sensitive skin and allergic reactions, my jewelry should not cause any problems. You may be wondering if gold filled wire is costume jewelry and how it's made. It is definitely not costume jewelry. It is made by fusing a thick layer of karat gold to a metal (alloy) and makes a permanent bond that is virtually indestructible and with proper care will last a lifetime. It wears like solid gold and looks like solid gold but at a fraction of the cost. Gold filled wire will not tarnish or wear off. I include a care sheet with every purchase, but so you know before you purchase your item, caring for your item is not expensive or time-consuming. Here is all you will need to know. When your piece needs cleaning, you can wipe off with a soft polishing cloth. You can take a small bowl and line with aluminum foil. Add hot water and a tablespoon of the Tide powder laundry detergent without bleach (not the liquid form). Put your jewelry in solution for one minute. Rinse with clean water and let air dry. If you happen to have any stubborn build-up, just put a little dishwashing liquid in a bowl of water, leave jewelry in it over night and, if needed, clean jewelry with a soft bristled toothbrush, rinse and let air dry. This method will not hurt any stone and works for both sterling silver and gold filled wire wrapped jewelry. Dawn liquid detergent also works well.
