Flirty Gems, just in time for Valentines!

I ran across this super Chic little store on Etsy, called Flirty Gems. You have to check it out, her little earrings are super cute, and the prices are pretty great too!  Perfect for a little Valentines gift!
   Alana Imbruce, is the artist and designer of this FAB little jewelry line.
 I asked her how she started making her little creations, and this is what she said.....

              I am 37 years old and a Mom to three, 8, 5 and a 1 year old.  I started selling my line in retail stores shortly after having my first born 8 years ago I always made jewelry but it wasn't until then that I decided to do it full time and I enjoyed the fact that I could do it all from my home office.  I got the idea of starting my line while I was in the process of getting married and looking for jewelry to match my bridesmaids dresses when I couldn't find any I decided to make them myself and everyone loved them and in turn when they were all getting married asked me to make them for there bridal parties and from there it just took off as they say.  I was featured on a segment on NBC morning news about bridal party jewelry then Brides Magazine followed then Seventeen and Pregnancy Magazine.  I take a lot of pride in my work and make each piece myself which is why I decided to sell on Etsy because there is no stress I just make what I love and can handle and when I sell it I make more there is no stress from big retail orders and I can maintain the craftmanship I pride myself on.  I always remember a quote I heard in my early twenties that said remember what made you happy as a child and then find a way to do that for a living and you will be happy and I thought to myself when I was a child I would spend hours out on the lawn on the grass stringing daisies together and making necklaces and bracelets out of them so that's what makes me happy I guess...making jewelry is my happy place.

 Can you believe she has been in so many magazines!  
Anyway here are just a few of my favorite pieces she has in her shop right now!

I think I may have just found the new colors for my living room!  I LOVE aqua and coral!  So cute with white in the summer!
