All my life I had long blonde hair, but in my early forties I decided it was time to have it all cut off! Wearing my hair short gave me the excuse to have my ears pierced and to start wearing earrings. Things didn’t run smoothly, but after a while my ears and my skin adjusted and I indulged myself in purchasing a wide range of earrings!
I discovered that I loved earrings that were inspired by the designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, particularly his rose design, so when looking for new earrings I was always drawn to those that were influenced by his work. Over the years, I have collected quite a few!

Last Christmas I could no longer resist and purchased four pairs of earrings from four different sellers as a treat to myself! I think at the time I thought I was going to give them away as gifts, but of course, once they arrived I couldn’t part with them!
I appreciate beautiful things. When I am designing and making, the thought that I want to create something beautiful is uppermost in my mind. Sadly, it is not always achievable, but I certainly give it my best shot!
I am sure that I share this wish with all the jewellery designers/makers on Folksy, whether consciously or not! I decided it was time to celebrate this beauty, so my blog post today is devoted to those special people who create beauty with their treasury of jewels!

I hope you don't mind but I steered clear of depicting some earrings. They would have been far too much of a temptation! I am sure you will agree though that the selection I have chosen are all beautiful, and I hope you enjoy looking at this feast of beauty as much as I have enjoyed finding it!
If you wear jewellery I hope you will consider purchasing something beautiful for yourself - go on, treat yourself!
