Pearls and Gold

I've been working a bit more with goldfill metal.  I love the shiny cool look of sterling silver, but also love the warm glow of gold!

There's something very timeless and elegant about freshwater pearls and gold!

Goldfill is the next best thing to real gold. It will not tarnish, crack, chip or peel. Under normal circumstances it will last a lifetime. 14K gold filled wire matches your solid 14K gold jewelry perfectly.

Angel Earrings

One of my favorite things to make are my angel earrings.  They just bring a smile to people.  I just made a handful of pink crystal angels for breast cancer survivors.  Available now in my ETSY shop :)

Jewelry Craft Show Displays

I don't do many shows, so the displays I use are usually home-made and inexpensive.  Since we are in the middle of show season, I thought I'd re-post my DIY earring display.  Here is the original post.

The earring cards and hangers were a great investment.  Each card has a little plastic back 'hook' so I was able to hang them on ribbon.

The hooks are adhesive and attach right to the back of the card you want to hang:

I purchased the hangers from the Homegrown Gems shop on ETSY.  The shop has a lot of great jewelry cards and tags along with accessories.

I've also found that baseball trading card stands make great earring displays.   I found these on EBAY: 

They're the perfect size to display earrings as well as my business cards:

Good luck in all of your shows!
