Happy New Year! I know I’m five days late, but I took time off to enjoy the Holiday Season and I must say it was a great one! I’m a little late posting this, but Happy Birthday to all the Capricorns out there. In honor of your season our Capricorn Zodiac Earrings are 20% off during your birthday season!

Don’t forget October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection helps to increase the survival rate, which is why we support organizations like The Witness Project of CT that help women in under served communities or without insurance to receive mammograms. If you haven’t purchased your PINK Glory ring there’s still time. 50% of the sale of each ring will be donated to the Witness Project.
When people ask where I get my inspiration from when creating jewelry designs I draw a complete blank and am at a loss for words. I could say “I draw inspiration from the shapes of the clouds” or “the colors of sunset” (sounds nice and deep right?), but that wouldn’t be completely true. To be honest majority of my inspiration comes from my customers. I pay attention to what items sell, what colors are purchased, the feedback they give, the suggestions that they make and pictures they send me wearing the jewelry they’ve purchased from me. That’s the real deal inspiration for me. I could sit here all day and draw inspiration from external sources and create something lovely, but if my customers don’t love it then what’s the point.
One of item that received much attention from my customers is the Gold Brass Envelope Necklace below. It’s one of the designs that I have continuously worked on to make it my “own” over time. Every time I’ve sat down to create a modified version to it I found my self making it more and more personal. Recently I took a completely different angle when designing the newest modified version of it (3rd picture). I even added a little “textured” look by hammering it a bit. This version comes hanging from a 14kt gold filled chain to give it a more timeless appeal. Since I’m all about personalizing I even added a hand stamped option in the listing. Hope you like you.

Black Friday at The PINK Locket has started on my Etsy Store.
The Winter Collection is finally here and just in time for the Holiday Season. Created from older and vintage jewelry pieces, the idea behind this collection was to take an older jewelry piece and deconstruct it, turning it into something new. Just think, how many of us have an old and/or odd jewelry piece that we don’t wear anymore that is just stashed away in our jewelry box. Why not “recycle” it into something HAUTE. That’s exactly what I did. Check out a couple of the new designs:
Here’s a little peek at what’s to come for our Winter Collection, launching later this week….
Okay, so I’m joining the forces of the Etsy Holiday Boot Camp. One of our tasks was to create a holiday mission. Easily done….here’s my mission for the holidays.
To provide my old & new customers with a handmade holiday “shopping experience” that will allow new customers to return and old ones to spread the word!
