TierraCast Dulce Vida Collection

TierraCast Dulce Vida Collection

In early January, we received an newsletter from TierraCast about a new collection of jewelry components they’ve charmingly (pun intended ) called Dulce Vida – the Sweet Life. This collection features reversible or two-sided charms, pendants, clasps, buttons – almost everything you need for a complete jewelry project.  Featuring brass oxide and antique pewter, the Dulce Vida Collection has a distinctive vintage, non-conforming look with the avoidance of straight lines and a flat profile, so much so, that some of these items would not look out of place set beside ancient Roman relics.

Love with all your Heart, Embrace the Beauty that surrounds you, Cherish time with Family and Friends – this is the Sweet Life…

There are three segments – Flora, Jardin and Amor each with their own charms, pendant, clasps, etc.

We have a selection available now and more will be arriving next week. We will update this blog once they are available.


TCI_Logo_ColorTierraCast is a USA based company that specializes in quality pewter cast components for the jewelry making industry. The TierraCast product line provides affordable, quality components that compliment a wide range of jewelry and beadwork.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!! Are you wearing something green?

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!

Are you wearing something green?

Today everyone is a little bit Irish. St Patrick’s Day is celebrated with parades and dances and it is customary to something green. Although not as ubiquitous as the shamrock  , the Triskele is also an Irish symbol (albeit an ancient one) . Green and gold are a traditional Irish Celtic theme and coupled with a triskele charm would make a great gift for you or someone special on St Patrick’s Day.

Green Serpentine Triskele Earrings

Green Serpentine Triskele Earrings are created with triskele charms below green serpentine coin beads. These serpentine beads are very similar to jade and are known as Canadian Jade. The Triskele charms are TierraCast pewter (made in the USA) with an antiqued gold finish. The earwires are gold filled hooks.

The Triskele symbol is also known as Triskelion or simply as the Triple Spiral and is an ancient celtic symbol based on three conjoining spirals. The triskele was used in Ireland during both the pre-Celtic (as early as 3200 BC, before both Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids) and Celtic periods.

Earring Size: 1-7/8″ or 47mm

The earring size is measured from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the lowest bead or component.

Safari Prints Customizable Earrings

Safari Collection
Share
Animal Prints Caterpillar EarringsSilver on Blue Animal Print Caterpillar EarringsGold on Blue Animal Print Caterpillar Earrings

These earrings above are straight from our Safari Prints Collection where our patterns are based on African animals.

You can choose between Cheetah/ Leopard Spots, Giraffe Spots, and Zebra or Tiger Stripes.

You also can choose how many disks you want.

~~~The Story~~~

We recently sold a pair of the blue and silver earrings to a lady in California who had a restriction on the length of the earrings she could wear at work. She was only allowed 2 Inch earrings. Our pre-made earrings, which were all six disks long, were 2-1/4″. So she asked – with great hopes – if we could sell her a pair with 5 disks instead of the six which she believed would be less than 2 Inches. We, of course, said yes and sold her the 5 disk earrings (which were just shy of 2 Inches) and her request inspired us to change our format to allow this customization.

Is there an animal pattern you would like us to try for you? email us at maxxmaxx@shaw.ca.

Oh by the way, if you need to find your inner animal try the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) Inner Animal Quiz. Please note the quiz will pop up in a separate window. Likely you will end up as a Big Horn Sheep, or Eagle or hopefully not a Grizzly Bear but maybe a nice cuddly Panda Bear or Koala. Support wildlife anyway and anywhere you can.

Lets say you get a Tiger Animal Spirit – you know where to get Tiger earrings. A tiger person would have courage and a lot of willpower and be very well respected.

Would a Giraffe person be tall? Not necessarily, but would most likely would be creative and daring (as in sticking your neck out or being creative outside the box) or stretching ourselves out to achieve greater things in perhaps business or personal relationships.

How about the Cheetah? A solitary animal but widely known for its speed. Cheetahs are very focused and swift but for a short period of time. Do you know anyone like that? In ancient times, the cheetah spirit was believed to have the ability to conquer evil and to heal sickness.

Well for those of us that feel the need to have a mix (I can be a tiger person given the right circumstances, I can be a giraffe person when pushed into a corner, and I can be a cheetah person when the going gets tough) you can order all of the patterns as shown in the images (mix) or you can custom your own design ( cheetah and tiger/ tiger one side , giraffe on the other). Just let us know once you place your order.

Our First Jewelry Kit – Copper Caterpillar Earrings

Share

Kit for Copper Disk Earrings

We’ve created a kit of one of our popular Copper Caterpillar Earrings.

Kit for Copper Caterpillar Disc Earrings
Kit for Copper Caterpillar Disc EarringsKit for Copper Caterpillar Disc EarringsKit for Copper Caterpillar Disc Earrings

Jewelry kits are great for those wanting to learn to create their own jewelry.

Our kits have some advantages over purchasing raw components because they contain exactly what you need. You don’t have to “overbuy” a number of components from various merchants and then find end your design may not work.

The only thing you require is some basic tools and a willingness to learn to create jewelry.

We hope to have another kit available next week based on a spring design.

Check our What’s New page for further product updates.

Tears of Titan Earrings

Share

TitanSaturn has the second largest moon of our solar system: Titan. Besides its size, 50% larger than our moon,  Titan has an atmosphere where it rains; not water like our Earth, but methane. It is so cold on Titan that what is a gas on Earth is a liquid there!

Although we’re not here to teach you about Saturn or Titan, we want to show you what inspired us for this new earring design that we added to our Iron Rain collection. We decided to make a tribute to Titan and its methane rain with our Tears of Titan Earrings. Made with sterling chains and leverback ear wires, Swarovski crystals drip down from a heavy crystal cloud above. We hope you like these earrings as much as we enjoyed making them.
