The collection of hoop earrings is something I've been working on for a couple of months now. I initially created a couple of prototype pairs to test the waters, and they were snapped up immediately! The response was amazing, loads of you wanted to get your hands on some of these.
Now let me tell you, that's a good feeling. Knowing that a unique product that came from my brain was so in demand was amazing. I'm always so so grateful for the support I get from you wonderful people, and I always want to deliver! So I got to work on the first collection, and I took my time sourcing the right crystals and getting it spot on.
And so it is now official, the first hoop collection will be released on 15th April at 7pm (BST). There are 15 pairs in total, all on sterling silver hoops in your choice of size.
I have wrapped the crystals in silver plated wire, for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that these crystals will be in very minimal contact with skin or any other material, and whilst wear is not something that concerns me with the wire that I use, I do think there is a little bit of an apprehension in general around that, so it's best to address it. The second reason is that this wire is much easier to use, and with such tiny crystals in particular, its a tricky job to use sterling silver (sometimes impossible!). And the last reason is the cost - using silver plated wire instead of sterling silver allows me to keep the cost of the final product lower.
All this being said, I know some of you may still prefer sterling silver wire or need it for a medical reason, and in cases like this I am more than happy to create something for you. All you have to do is drop me a DM on Instagram, contact me via my contact page, or send me an email to email@example.com.
