Studs For Days

I love these little studs. They’re just so charming! Tiny little bronze hearts are painted and resin coated, with stainless steel posts. I’ve got a few pairs I’m keeping to myself, and these ones are getting listed in the shop throughout the day. Mostly hearts, but there’s a few stars as well. Next time I get supplies I’m going to make some more shapes as well. I’m feeling geometrics like circles and triangles might be next…

Mixed Metals

I love getting requests for custom pieces! That extra bit of outside inspiration leads to some of my most favourite pieces! A friend asked for mixed metal earrings and a matching necklace to go with. The necklace is reversible, having all the same colours but a different brush stroke pattern on the back more akin to what’s on the earrings.

This is off in the mail now, and I think I’ll need to make more similarly patterned pieces in different colours before I get my fix!

Leather and Floral

I’ve been having a blast lately, experimenting with scraps of fabric I’ve been hoarding for ages. Lightweight, pastel, floral fabric and dark, bold leather scraps are getting turned into two very distinct earring styles. Which kind do you prefer?

Fresh Off The Workbench: Blue Filigree Statement Necklace

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes, what you end up with is so much better than you first imagined. Case in point, this necklace.

I had this idea in my head for ages, a 5 piece necklace, tapering on the sides. I originally thought all the pieces would be a simple, round setting, but when I tried it I found it flipped backwards more often than it didn’t because of where the connections were. That just drove me crazy and had to be fixed.

Last night while out at dinner I had a lightbulb moment, and this morning I doubled up on the jump rings on every connection. It still allows for movement but now the likelihood of any pieces ending up backwards is far less. So far today I’ve been flip-free! That includes jumping, dancing, and shimmying in front of the mirror to be sure.

I’ll keep wearing it to see if anything needs to be fixed before I start selling them. I can’t wait to be back home to open my shop up again, these next few months are going to drag as I impatiently wait to share all these pretties. I have an array of colours already made, and since I had to do something with that old middle piece, they’ll have matching bracelets (and earrings, of course) to go with them!
