Trust Those Dreams of Gold

Last year, I posted a blog (She Sailed Away...) about a dream I had  several years ago that prompted me to finally take a jewelry class and learn how to use Precious Metal Clay.  In the dream, I (I think it was me!) was making gold jewelry.  I enjoy working with silver but I REALLY would love to work with gold....high carat gold like 18k, 22k, 24k... but with the price of gold at an all time high I have only dabbled with a few findings. A few weeks ago I splurged on some 18k gold ear wires and head pins and created a pair of earrings that had been in my head for awhile.  They ended up being the most expensive pair of earrings I had ever listed on Etsy and I figured they might sit on the shelf for months, if not forever.  Low and behold, one week later.....SOLD!  I couldn't believe it! 

I know the concept but now I now I trust it...... Do what you love and the rest will come!



So, you might be seeing more gold accented jewelry soon.

Beautiful earrings and workmanship. I love the gold and silver together. I always admire your elegant jewellery design and I'm not surprised the earrings have sold so quickly.
Have a good weekend.
