Recently, someone sent me information on an upcoming art exhibit, the theme, Mermaids and Seahorses… I sat at my desk and for some reason whale tails came to me! Maybe it was the mermaid ring holder on my desk or maybe it’s because I am inspired by nature and anything water related?.. Either way, I came up with these “Whale Tail” earrings!! I used sterling silver to make the tails, connection pieces and earring hooks. I added the shell beads to represent the whale body.
Why do I make my own earring hooks? My # 1 reason… I do it to keep all the metalwork hand-made! My #2 reason… At shows, people often ask me what kind of metal I use or they mention that they have sensitive skin. By making my own hooks I know what they are made of, sterling silver. I can be confident that customers know what they’re getting… it’s not a guessing game. For me, it is important to make jewelry that people can wear comfortably on a regular basis!

Have a Happy Memorial weekend!!
