I am pretty minimal when it comes to the jewelry I wear, today's post is all about exactly the sort of pieces that I am drawn towards when I want to wear to dress up an outfit. Here's Erin's story...
Name: Erin Reed
Location: San Diego, CA
Site: Gypsy Sol Designs
About 6 years ago a friend of mine showed me the basics of jewelry making, and I was hooked. Busy with two babies, I put my tools on the shelf until I recently decided to make time to create. I kept getting stopped by people asking where they could by my items, and thus, Gypsy Sol Designs was born. I am the daughter of a wonderfully skilled craftsman, and was raised to have appreciation for those who create. I realize now that my desire to create beautiful things probably comes with seeing my dad create impressive things out of nothing.I think my work stands apart because it has an organic feel, yet can be paired with a ball gown or blue jeans. I'ts not "blingy" yet still is eye-catching. All of my items are named after song titles from artists that I am listening to while creating.
Tricks for fitting creating in? Wait till the babes are sleeping!! I can't get anything done with two toddler boys running around, to all work is done when they are peacefully asleep!I am really excited about the a-symmetrical necklaces that I have been making. Here are a few of my favorite items:
I just think these are gorgeous, and again, perfect with jeans and a t-shirt or something fancy.
