Valentine Jewelry Galore! I've been crafting so many glitter hearts & other fancy resin baubles!

isewcute has been working hard on casting new & beautiful resin glitter jewelry just in time for Valentine's day!
This fabulous big glitter heart pendant necklace has the most magical blend of sparkly glitter in ruby red with accents of purple & silver added. I'm planning on making rings & earrings to match because I adore this color combo.

Almost everything in the shop is packaged up in these cute reusable heart shaped gift tins! They're perfect for gift giving... or just spoiling yourself a little.
If you would like a custom sprinkles heart with your initials, or a sweetie's initials, please do contact me through etsy! I adore custom orders!
Speaking of custom creations, this "I Love You" heart is one of a kind. I designed it with 4 cherub characters making a frou frou fun design around the letter beads & filled it with sparkly black glitter. It's bold & eye catching & the only one in the world! It would make a great gift for someone who appreciates truly one of a kind items.
Here are some lovely silvery red glitter heart dangle earrings I made which are both perfect for Valentine's day & every day wear for the girl who likes to show off her romantic side.
Now this fresh & flirty ring is one of my latest creations which has a real starlight mint inside...along with glitter & the cutest (kawaii) polka dotted heart. If you like your rings the-bigger-the-better, you can appreciate the beauty of this conversation piece!
Pink is my personal favorite color, so I consider this beautiful glitter heart necklace to be my la pi├Ęce de la resistance. It has all the shimmer & sparkle a gal can hope for in a glitter heart.
This darling modern love-heart glitter ring is one of my latest experiments. I often do test pieces to see what would happen if I mix color a with color b & when I popped it out of the mold to see it for the first time, it took my breath away. There is a galaxy of multi colored sparkles dusting the face of this ruby red heart. It's simply magical!
I haven't decided if I have to keep this darling little kitten, or if I'm going to list it in the shop so it can get a new home. Maybe if the right person came along, I'd let it go. She's one of a kind & so cute, but until then, you can find many of my cat necklaces here.

I have even more to come to isewcute in the next few days! New glittery resin heart pendant necklaces, rings, earrings, and more... so come on by & see it for yourself!

*You can also find most of my Valentine resin jewelry listed in this section of the shop for easy shopping: http://www.etsy.com/shop/isewcute?section_id=10637031


Thanks for looking & stay sparkly!

You have got to see this Art by Don Cobb! It's a treat for your eyes!

Artist Don Cobb grew up in Texas & resides in Louisianna. His art is a reflection of his background & unique vision in a flood of wonderful washy colors layered over one another playing with light & shadow.
The themes of Don's paintings would appeal to a wide variety of folks looking for something comforting & yet sometimes still edgy.
This piece makes me want to pull up a chair & sit a spell!

I once had the pleasure of spending a lovely weekend getaway in a quaint bed & breakfast smack dab in the garden district of New Orleans & some of Don's paintings bring me back to that lovely time with all the spice & culture that New Orleans has to offer in it's food, music, & beauty.
I remember watching rainbows come and go in the mist of water created by the paddle wheel on the riverboat tour we took.
If you ever have the opportunity to travel there, I highly recommend it! If you don't, then Don's paintings may be the next best thing!

I'm attracted to his work by the use of so many colors... makes me think this isn't the way the world really looks, but it's how I want the world to look! It's a real treat!
I also love his compositions & themes. I have my eye on this cherub painting which would look just heavenly in my little girl's room.

You know, father's day is practically right around the corner! What dad wouldn't appreciate one of these fabulous pieces? He doesn't need another tie, or bottle of cologne... give the gift of art because every time he looks at it, he will be reminded of how much he means to you & he will have it forever.
I personally adore the fender stratocaster guitars:
This piece reminds me of all the great western movies I watched with my dad when I was a kid:
The color here in this volkswagen bus painting is another that just grabs me...I love it!

These have been a few highlights that I'm personally attracted to, but you'll want to check out Don's etsy shop to see much, much more! So grab a cup of coffee & sit down to take a moment & enjoy & perhaps even enrich your life by purchasing your very own work of art.

Art is forever~
