So Many Different Kinds of Pearls!
Freshwater pearls, which come from rivers and lakes in China, are the most popular of all types of pearls. Although they come in a huge range of colors, I work almost exclusively with white or cream pearls; these more natural pearl colors have been so popular, especially when paired with sterling silver! A classic combination! Click HERE to see all the freshwater pearl jewelry!
New bold earrings - familiar design, new larger format!
I'll be you have heard that big, bold earrings are "in" right now and for the foreseeable future! Bold earrings are a great accent for denim and can be the focal point of the "no makeup" make up look!
These statement earrings are also wonderful if you dress simply - they will create an instant sense of your personality!
These earrings come in two smaller sizes (medium size handmade silver earrings and this small silver earring design). This design was just begging for a new larger size and this is it!
Circles are such an important universal symbol and jewelry that incorporates this ancient symbol makes a statement for the wearer. The circle has long been a symbol of wholeness, infinity and unity among people. I am so excited to share with you some new additions to La Luna Collection - jewelry that uses the simple circle as it's core. If you want to read more about the circle as a symbol, go HERE to do that.

The fleur de lis is a symbol that is deeply ingrained in Louisiana's history and I use it in many of my handmade jewelry designs, including the fleur de lis necklace, fleur de lis bracelet and fleur de lis earrings pictured above. Many people are interested in the fleur de lis meaning so I wanted to give you a little information about this beautiful and ancient symbol that is seen on the Louisiana state flag and in architecture across the state.
The fleur de lis is a considered a "stylized" lily (in French, fleur means "flower", and lis means "lily") that has been used since ancient times in association with French royalty and in religious symbolism.
The fleur de lis symbol has been regarded as a sign of purity since antiquity. In fact, the Catholic Church has used the fleur-de-lis emblem both as a symbol of the Holy Trinity as well as an emblem of the Virgin Mary.
So there you have it! Hopefully now you know a little more about this beautiful symbol than you knew before!
These are some of the most popular dangle earrings of all time for my shop. Everyone loves sterling silver, so that is part of the charm but I think the rest of the story is in the "flexibility" of these silver earrings - they move with you and are just so much fun to wear because of that!
These earrings would make a great gift for mom (a Mother's Day gift) - you can choose silver, silver and gold or silver and copper.
