I am so excited by the new line that is coming off the bench this week! I got some feedback from a happy client who said that while she loved her earrings… the earwires were a little big. This makes sense, they are, I like ’em oversized and make them that way on purpose… but that look isn’t for everyone.
I sat down at the bench with some commercial earwires for reference and came up with something I think will suit.
This sparked some thought about how maybe folks who like smaller wires might prefer something less swingy, so I got out some of my smaller brios and began to play.
And thus, The Dainties were born.
The Dainties feature conventionally sized earwires and smaller stones. They have a more subtle, monochromatic look.
I’ll be making conventionally sized OR oversized earwires an option on all shop listings from now on. People with a preference one way or another can choose when they order and just leave me a note to seller.
It is not a bad thing, to listen. Sometimes it leads you down a pretty new design path.
And speaking of “pretty” and “new” I’ve got the most amazing stones going up in the shop next week! Rubies, fire opals, lemon quartz… I’ve been playing around with ideas for my earring club (there are still two final spots left in the Etsy shop but as of April 1 they will be gone) and I am trying to decide whether to treat my first club members to sapphires or to emeralds… decisions are hard!
