Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Cabcrochet Earrings Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/16) CLOSED

Thursday, December 02, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I love beautiful jewelry. My favorite pieces do not necessarily cost a lot of money but they have character, and a little something that makes them a perfect match to my style and personality.

I recently came across a talented jewelry designer who crochets her pieces from various materials. Cheryl, the artisan behind  Cabcrochet, has been crocheting since she was 11 years old. She sent me a beautiful pair of hand-crocheted earrings - beautiful, light as air, stylish and original. The Gold 4 Drop circles earrings are crocheted from thin wire, and are perfect for every day wear as well as for special occasions. Each earring is made from 4 crocheted circles, and is about 3 inches long. I am looking forward to wearing them to a holiday gathering this weekend. I fell in love with many of her other earrings, and the necklaces and bracelets in her shop look exquisite. Here is what Cheryl says about her work:

Cabcrochet  jewelry designs is a handcrafted jewelry business with a focus on creating jewelry that is distinctive and crocheted. My customers pride themselves on wearing fashions that express their individuality and they choose my designs for styles that are both fashion-forward and versatile.

I have been crocheting since I was about 11 years old. It was once a creative hobby of mine that has now become a passion as I look for new ideas and new materials to add to my jewelry designs. Some of my designs just ‘come’ to me and I create them to see the end result. I might also see a piece of jewelry I partly like and decide I would try to crochet something like that so I put my own twist on it to make it my own original design.

All pieces of my jewelry are handmade by me and inspired by my own creativity and personal style. My goal is to create jewelry that is unique, beautiful and affordable. Each piece is crocheted with either wire or thread with maybe added embellishments for extra flair.  I crochet each piece with a lot of love, patience and a passion to create simply earresistable pieces.

Check out Cabcrochet's Etsy store - Cheryl's creations are very pretty, and quite affordable. You could get a beautiful pair of earrings for $8-$15, a necklace for $15-$35, or a bracelet for $21. This jewelry would make a nice addition to your personal collection or a wonderful gift.

    I would love the oval silver and gold bracelet, but I think I would buy the double strand danglers for my niece's upcoming birthday. I've "bookmarked" cabcrochet--thanks for the introduction.
