A True Sweetheart Earrings by PeppermintPuff A True Sweetheart Earrings by PeppermintPuff
These beautiful earrings are made using vintage cellulose Sweetheart pendants, I added flat back pearls and hung a glitter resin heart on the inside of the pendant. These earrings have elegant pink and purple mixed glass crackle beads just below the ear wire for an extra lovely touch

These earrings are so sweet and dainty.

These earrings are available on my etsy shop here: [link]
There is also a matching necklace here: [link]


Thank you for looking!

My goodness! About a week ago I went crazy buying all these supplies from the jewelry section to make earrings out of these clay charms I made.
...tough time! didn't really know what I was doing because I had never done jewelry making before. I literally looked like this while I was trying make the loop for the eyepin :stare:
Of course, that could also be because I wasn't wearing my glasses... anyway, I tried with the assistance of my mom and managed to make my pokeball earrings :D of course, I didn't make the fish hooks though... I admit, I bought them pre-made.. it was so much easier even though I feel like a cheater :forgiveme:
Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon! You have an amazing talent! :love:

hah awww, it takes a while to get started but you will get there! :) A lot of people buy pre-made parts, it's a little ridiculous to expect people to make every single aspect of a necklace. As long as a majority is your idea and work then thats good!

My advice is to not be afraid to take inspiration and help from others! youtube / google are your greatest friends when starting any hobby! I actually watched a few videos on making eye pins before I got it! haha You need to right tools and a bit of practice and then it's easy!

Don't feel like a cheater! It's not always about making every aspect (cameos, settings, metal work) but how you put them together! A lot of my stuff comes from suppliers and then I spend time carefully designing and piecing them together to make them unique to Peppermint Puff! :) <3

really? did you sell at local shops? I'm a little afraid that no one will want to purchase online if I decide to post stuff; I think it's a little easier selling directly to people. (?) :/

I have permanent spaces in shops yeah :) Not sure how they're selling right now as I've not heard from the shops for a bit! I should chase that up haha. Aww well if you do well selling directly then you can stick to that, if you do sell a lot maybe do a poll asking if people want a shop! You could start somewhere like storenvy where everything is free so you don't have to worry about fee's and costs if you don't sell anything :)

There are free shops online? :O *gets out notepad and takes notes* haha
I'm not exactly good with business, so I'm not having any luck.. see, it would be nice to get some side money in the future for myself, but right now I'm focusing on getting some money for my family friends. No luck whatsoever :/ I keep getting favorites on my stuff, but I guess no one's taking me too seriously because I haven't digitally colored them in yet. And I still have yet to put a pic up of my earrings and charms I made. I did hear a while ago that in order to get recognized, you need to give out free samples first before you can sell anything. I guess someday I'll get the hang of it :hmm:

Sorry for the slow reply! yeah there are! Things like Etsy and Artfire are quite cheap too. I hear a lot of people like Artfire.

I am not good at it hahaha, I've not really been doing anything I should T_T I need to sort it out if I want this to really work out! I need to re-open www.peppermintpuff.co.uk and sort out a webshop for it! I have some really cute collections I want exclusively for it!

I know the feeling...so many favourites, so little sales, It can get really frustrating. but my step-dad said about someone who said "20,000 followers doesn't make sales" I just have to get used to stuff like meta-tags, promoting, etc!

You should put up pictures of your things on here! Maybe add a price and let people decide if they want to buy through DA! You would only need a Paypal account really.

Yeah that might help, I want to make a bunch of "guru packages" that I want to send to popular bloggers or youtubers etc to review. I might send a few to some of my favourite just as gifts rather then for review! People like kindness!
