We had a lovely time with our friends on Easter Sunday. Great food and lots of fun was had by all. Of course, I never go out without wearing a pair of ear cuffs, so I decided to embrace the Spring weather now it is finally here and celebrate with my' Love The Bugs' EarCuffs. I also decided to enhance my left ear with one of my crystal ear cuff rings. All in all I felt very festive and Springlike and enjoyed the compliments. This pair of earcuffs are my latest style listed in my Etsy shop, ElegantEarCuffs. I hope you'll drop in and browse my designs and come back soon because I'll be sure to have additional designs real soon.
And Happy Earth Day! Another reason to "love the bugs."
That's me with my Love The Bugs EarCuffs
and EarCuff Ring
I'm excited to be a juried participant at the event in Malvern, PA next month. I've been increasing my line of ear cuffs, both in design and variations, using silver, brass and copper wire, and crystals and semi-precious stones, and applying a protective coating on all my ear cuffs to prevent tarnishing and skin sensitivity. I have about 40 items listed on Etsy, but I will have several hundred pairs at the craft fair. I'll be posting an update in a couple of weeks when I am told exactly where I will be located. In the meantime, you can read all about the event on their Facebook page.
I've started creating some designs for more formal occasions, thinking about those who may not have pierced ears or don't want the nagging irritation or even pain that comes with wearing clip-ons. This is why I got interested in earcuffs in the first place, since I have had my ears pierced twice unsuccessfully.
I get a lot of traffic at my Etsy site looking for pearls and silver and so I have started making designs that incorporate Swarovski crystals and pearls and sterling silver beads on silver-filled, silver, or gold-filled wire. All the designs are customizable to modify the design, or incorporate different color pearls and crystals.
If you have a special event coming and you want to wear something on your ear(s) so comfortable that you cannot feel them at all, I'd love to work with you.
Here are some designs I have so far with more on the way.
