They have also held cultural value to their citizens since ancient times. The Meaning of Cherries

Where Did My Inspiration Come From For Designing These Charm Earrings?

I was inspired to design these earrings as part of a larger earring collection that I call my Simply Elegant Earring Collection. Each pair of earrings in this collection is simple and elegant because I wire wrap one bead into each one. Each one is elegant because of the wire wrapped design of the earring wires, the beads, or both.

When you wear these earrings, I hope they will help you to experience renewal and rebirth. 

I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoyed designing and making them!
