Holiday of Hearts, a Moment of Honesty

So to be perfectly honest, I’m always a little resigned to create new goodies for Valentine’s. Mainly because I don’t understand it, but also because I automatically dump all heart related objects into the “cutesy” category of aesthetics.  Yes, they can sometimes be made adorable, but personally I always see a “cheese factor”. So, I started sawing some hearts for my plain silver heart studs that have always been made to order in the shop….and….realized that even if I’m not gaga over the outcome, they are a REALLY fun shape to saw out. They’re up there with stars and skulls. I’ve always liked all things (not just jewelry) with an organic feel. When you have a heart thats hand sawed, or filed, or some other process that is handmade, I feel that a little bit of the cheese is taken away. It’s got an edge. It’s not symmetrical, it’s not laser cut, plated, stenciled or a template. It has a little bit of life infused into it and it is unique. 

That being said, I’ve created a few lower priced items for Valentine’s Day. We’ll see how they do, they may even become permanent “made to order” items. These will all be added to the Etsy shop sometime tomorrow night!
