The big, the bold and the colorful.

The big, the bold and the colorful upcycled vinyl record earrings; my focus has been on the Funky! collection in the past weeks. My bet is that you’ve probably noticed from my IG feed. I find these just so fun to make as each pair is truly one of a kind. Here’s a glimpse of a few pairs that have recently been listed.

Large black and red geometric recycled vinyl record dangle earrings by DANA Jewellery
The iconic Polydor colors

They are big yet super light. “Woah but they are so light!” is a comment I get all the time. On top of that, the hooks are surgical steel, which is a nickel free and hypoallergenic material. No need to worry you with sensitive ears out there!

Let these quirky dangle earrings become your new power accessory. If you like dressing in a monochromatic fashion -I do-, a pair of these is sure to add that quirky touch of color to your outfit. Quirky and powerful, what else can you possibly want. Well, apart from peace in this wild world.

Look at that black and mint green combination. Mmmint green! It isn’t a very common color when it comes to vinyl record labels hence my slight over excitement. I have to admit that the “INTERSOUND” ones nearly didn’t make it online. Yup, was very tempted to keep ’em to myself. There, I said it.

Summer isn’t over (please!). Image found over at http://www.paulette-magazine.com.

Nope nope nope summer sure isn’t over and here at DANA headquarters we love accessorizing with fresh pieces from the white acrylic collection. The bold hints of silver and gold are oh so pretty and summery against the ivory white acrylic. So guess what? I’ve made a selection from that collection that has been marked down 30%. Yay! I am making room in the studio to welcome new pieces in white. So “where can I find this sweet deal” you may be wondering? Head over to the website which is right here and you’ll find them along with many other items from the vinyl record jewelry collection that have been marked down. But have a look at what you may find; I’ve gathered some photos below.

The minimalist vinyl record chevron necklaces.

These minimalist chevron necklaces from the vinyl record jewelry collection have also been marked down because of slight irregularities at the backs. The fronts are still oh so pretty and will look very good on you.  Yes YOU!

Hey, I’ve added a sale section

Hey, I’ve added a sale section to my shop. The quiet winter months are for designing and sketching away and looking at Pinterest and feeling overwhelmingly inspired and for sipping hot drinks and making prototypes aren’t they?

Hum, well, for small creative businesses, January and February are also often made for the not-so-fun work of doing inventories and organizing and reorganizing. And wondering if you’re doing all that stuff right.

So here! Feel free to browse my discounted designs which are handcrafted by yours truly mostly from recycled vinyl records. I’ve posted a few photos of what’s available at the moment of writing. These items are either from past collections or have some very minor defects … which, really, makes them even more special. Huh?

I’m a sucker for copper

I’m definitely a sucker for copper. Don’t get me wrong; I do wear my gold and silver designs but I have to admit that copper is my favorite of the 3 metallic tones. I like making the copper designs, I like photographing them and I like wearing them. They are also easier to photograph than the silver and gold designs for some reason, thus almost bringing joy to the sometimes strenuous photo sessions.

Copper dipped vinyl record statement ring

Could it be the warmth of copper that I find so comforting during the cold winter months? That coppery tone also works so well with the surrounding environment. The south west of Ireland can be pretty coppery -and wet of course- in the wintertime. I doubt it is a subconscious effort to match my environment. In the end it’s a personal preference innit?

Black and copper minimalist vinyl record necklace

The fiery copper against the black of the vinyl record does come alive as soon as the light hits it, as it dangle on a long, or shorter chain. And did you know that the backs of the necklaces are left untouched so you can appreciate the vinyl record grooves?
