Now I’m into “danglies”

So I’m back on the talking about earrings kick. I’ve amazed myself with the earring bug that got into me – both making and wearing them.

When I was younger I would never wear anything but clips or posts. The idea of something ‘dangling’ down my neck gave me the creeps – literally. I would feel as though something was crawling up my neck. God heavens, soo dramatic, I can almost see the drama queen pose or the frantic scabbling around my neck for the spider. HaHa.

These Soutache ones are some I made at the beginning of my jewelry journey. I love them and still wear them. So what changed you ask? Well me, basically. Everything about me has changed in the last 20 years. Now I love my healing “danglies.”

I have a number of earrings listed in the Gallery however, I’m reluctant to try to add any to the store. As you can see from the pics, there are way too many of them. Additionally, when I’m doing a physical show they just fly off the rack. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a really good thing, but keeping up with the store inventory and then having to add more – phew! And that brings me back to the continuous push pull – do I add stock to the store or sit & stitch?

If you have a specific stone you would like to wear, drop me a quick note – I can send you specific images or even work on a custom set for you.
Love & Blessings till next time. J
