New for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is once again around the corner and this year, in an effort to narrow down my jewelry collection to items that showcase my best and most unique skills, I am offering all new items. These ones happen to feature a technique called caning. Please check out my Mountain Scene Cane post if you’re curious about the process.


These three sets are all made in the same heart shapes, each one with a different image. The glittery repeating hearts design is a classic Valentine’s Day pattern done in darker, more sophisticated colors. The iconic reflecting cityscape, my personal favorite, is great for couples remembering a special location such as where they met. And the mosaic/stained glass set, done in translucent pastels, symbolizes the idea that your heart doesn’t have to be unbroken to be beautiful. 

I think they are all subtle enough to wear throughout the year, and I also have a lot of floral sets available, which are perfect for the occasion and for Spring. And finally, for those hard-to-shop-for men in your life, I have a selection of cufflinks and tie/lapel pins featuring animals and landscape designs.

Shopping for romantic gifts can get a bit cliche at times – not that that’s the worst thing, I’d say love is allowed to be a little cheesy – but buying handmade is a great way to find something different. 

Please visit NoelleLewisArt.com or Pastiche Accessories on Etsy for more details on each item, and feel free to use coupon code “BETTER2GETHER” for $5 off any matching set. Have a lovely Valentine’s Day! 

Valentine’s Day Promotion and “Watercolor” Jewelry Set

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I wanted to do something fun and different for a promotion this year. So instead of the usual percent off or free shipping, all of next week’s Valentine orders will ship with a free gift. It’s a surprise but I will say that it’s inspired by a Valentine’s Day classic.

I had a couple other projects going on and only managed to design one new love-themed jewelry set, but I think it turned out pretty cool. I used three different colors of alcohol inks to create an abstract faux watercolor pattern on white polymer clay hearts. I think I will experiment with other colors and shapes later in the year.

As usual, I’ve also brought back several items from previous years, mostly hearts in red and pink, but some are definitely subtle enough to wear year round, and one of them can be personalized. I moved  all these items into the Valentine’s Day section of my Etsy shop so you know what’s included in the promotion.

 

My Valentine’s Day jewelry collection

So check it out and maybe you will find something special to gift or to wear. Handmade jewelry is a great option (in my biased opinion) because it can be a lot more affordable than fine jewelry, but more unique and personal. 

If you’re in a relationship this Valentine’s Day, I hope you can enjoy the day to celebrate your love and not feel too much pressure to make it perfect – it’s the thought that counts, right? 

And if you’re single, then I apologize for couples getting all the attention, and I hope you can feel good about doing something nice for yourself or other people in your life – cause you don’t have to be in a relationship to deserve that!
