Hand Made From Scratch and Hand Painted Too-Introducing Simply the Best Creations “Wearable 3D Art Jewelry-Earrings”!
I am so excited today! I’ve been chomping on the bit to finally share with you something new and exciting for us at Simply the Best Creations. I am finally able to show off some new artwork (earrings that is!) that is made from hand with glass and copper, hand painted like 3D art, topped with hypo-allergenic backs (gold filled or silver filled) or nickel-free earring backs (gold plated or stainless steel), then wrapped in a velvet black bag!
Let me tell you the story of how this came about!
Over a year ago, I met Adam Castrejon, my jewelry art partner in crime, through KSGVRadio.com. He was the producer of several shows on that internet radio station, and on one of those shows, I met him through Dennis Graham’s Free For All Fridays!
Dennis Graham invited me to be on the air in January of 2010 and I had a blast. I had the privilege of being on his show quite a few times after that, the last show being where I was able to interview a vampire and we had 20,000 listeners on the air! What excitement that was for Dennis, Adam and I!
Adam and I got to know each other better and through the process I learned that Adam himself was an oil painter amongst other things that he has done in the past (he’s a creative soul)! He approached me this year asking if I’d be interested in him making glass pieces for me to paint on! I was immediately interested as I always liked the idea of making stuff from scratch! It would be something neat and original and something you couldn’t find in a store! Not yet anyways!
In the process of him creating candle holders and other things, and through many meetings over lunch, Adam showed me something one day that made the light bulb go on in my head. He had accidentally broken some heart ornaments in half. Rather than waste the glass by throwing it away, he proceeded to make small teardrops using the half hearts. Upon me seeing it, I knew what our first product would be—EARRINGS!!! Immediately I told him this is what we will do first and foremost!! He was to make more of this half heart earrings (and now I call them TEARDROP earrings), small and large, and also round earrings, small and large too!
So Adam has been busy making lots of earrings, pendants, ornaments and candle holders so far. And there’s more to come in the future. Right now we are just working on earrings, but in the future I will keep you posted on the rest of the items we are making together.
So, with that said, I have several hand made earrings to share with you this entire week, starting with today through Friday…but it doesn’t stop there. As they are finished, I will be putting them up for sale on my ETSY shop which is HERE:
Below are pictures of the first four pairs of earrings for today! Check back with the ETSY shop link above to see the other pairs the rest of this week. I will not be posting a blog post for each day. Just check this link, bookmark it or put me in your circle on ETSY if you yourself have a shop up there, OR go to my Facebook Business Page, where I will be posting pictures of each pair of earrings on the wall for you to see every day this week. Check back often this week so you can see all of them. Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of these. I would love your feedback.
These are my favorite four pairs of earrings that I am showing today, and I can’t make up my mind which one is truly my #1 favorite of all. Which one is your favorite so far of these four?
