(Sorry for the blurry pictures) Jewelry and Accessories have always been a passion of mine. I absolutely get this love of adornment from my mom. She is always matching her wardrobe and accessories. Growing up I would go in her jewelry box and put on all that I could find! It is only natural that I would grow up and love to not only wear, but also design and craft jewelry myself.
Silver is tricky because it can easily tarnish and take away from the overall shine and beauty of the pieces. To solve this problem I always like to put a light patina (darkening agent) on all my silver jewelry.
Stones are a great way to add that extra color, personality and shine to a piece.
Doing a free hand design is the most challenging yet satisfying design work. I designed these earrings with a paisley design as my inspiration. It has been a while since I picked up a torch and designed but a skill that is still close to my heart.
