    Love your post. In fact, I wrote about it on my blog, promoting you as the author, of course! Great information.

    I loved the article! These types of resources are extremely valuable to anyone interested in making jewelry. I can’t wait to read some more of your articles!

  3. Handcrafted Jewelry Earrings says:

    Great article! I do wonder though…most people that I know who have metal allergies do the best with sterling, gold filled or gold earrings. I am a jewelry designer and you are leaving alot of choices out of the mix by not mentioning these metals. Is there a reason???

  4. Handmade Jewelry by says:

    I personally am allergic to most metals with the exception of surgical steel ear wires. I can wear sterling and gold for about 5 minutes before my earlobes begin to swell and turn red. As a handmade jewelry designer you should always provide options to your customers, but as a handmade wholesale jewelry supplier you must meet the needs of many people so surgical steel is a must.

    Very interesting #3. I didn’t know that. I thought they would be kind of neutral. I basically live in studs! I will have to reconsider!

    I have a round face and used to wear hoops all the time. Now that I look back on those pictures, I can see that you are absolutely right!
