…with Sustainably-Created Jewelry and “Thinnest” Thin Gold Hoop Earrings*:

​Hi Helen, I opened the envelope today…it looks amazing! [She] is going to love her new earrings. I’m so happy I found you so that I can pass on this beautiful artisan gift to her and I know she will forever appreciate this. She will forever remember. — g.k.

Hi Helen, I received my beautiful earrings today! I appreciate the quality of the earrings and of course the packaging! I love them so much I am ordering a similar pair for my niece. I love passing on such quality unique artisan earrings she will always wear and we will both cherish them. Thank you so much. — g.k.

I love them! They are fabu! he packaging was so pure TLC. I didn’t want to open them. Well I did, but you know : ) Thank you again for everything, Helen. I may go for another pair! — k.s.

The wrapping looks beautiful, can’t wait for her to receive them! Thank you! — l.l.

I love your mission! Such important work! — g.l.

 My earrings arrived and they are perfect. I love them. Your packaging is so beautiful. — l.w.

I ordered a few pairs of “thinnest” earrings from you several weeks back. As a designer, I wanted to take a moment to tell you how wonderful not only your product is, but also your product presentation. It was so much fun dissecting your product packaging and the experience was one-of-a-kind. Much like you! My favorite part about this whole experience was being introduced to conflict-free silver which I was unaware of. It’s truly a great day when one receives a great product made with integrity and compassion. Enjoy your day and know that you have another life-long fan. — g.b.

I will enjoy both of my beautiful silver and gold hoop earrings forever. — p.c.

I had been looking for the larger thin hoop earrings for some time but the ones I found were always too thick, until I found yours. I will be looking forward to loving the gold earrings as much as I love the silver ones. — p.c.

I love your work — I wear your tiny gold hoops everyday! Actually, I haven’t taken them off since I got them 3 years ago. — l.d.

Helen! They are gorgeous and so was the way you packaged it…you are a beautiful gifted artist. — p.b.

I love them! They are beautiful. I’ll be in touch with you again for additional purchases. They are everything I hoped they would be! — j.p.

Thank you so much. They are exactly as I thought they would be. — a.b.

Got them! And they are beautiful and exactly what I wanted! Thank you! n.k.

I wanted to let you know that the earrings have arrived. They look amazing. s.g.

Delicate and so beautiful — love them! — julsie17

Simply beautiful. I love these earrings. — amyliedman

I bought heart-shaped hoop earrings from you two years ago, and they are my absolute favorite pair of earrings. I love the “daintiest” hoop earrings, too! I just got a second set of lobe piercings and think these will look great with the hearts. I’ll definitely be back to shop again soon. l. wood

Absolutely beautiful earrings and such pleasant correspondence! Thanks so much!
grownda

The earrings got here today and they are great. They look really nice on my wife and she loves them. Thanks.  c.d. jr.

Aloha Helen, my earrings arrived today in the mail.  I just wanted to thank you for doing such beautiful work — I love them! Mahalo...
— b.m.

I got the earings. I can’t tell you how excited I am to wear them, they are exquisite. They look terrific. I keep touching them because I can’t even feel them they are so light!
— pinto pony

Helen treats her customers with care — she provides immediate responses to any questions you may have about her products and it didn’t take too long to receive these earrings. She also is personal with her packaging — really sweet letter included with the purchase and adorable bag for the earrings is included, too! I will continue doing business with Helen in the future for sure. kimquerciagrossa

Best purchase for jewelry in a long time. I’m very simple when it comes to accessories, so I had to have these. Great price, cute packaging, was an absolute pleasure to do business with Helen. I loved the earrings so much that I’ve gotten myself a second bigger, that are larger. They really are ultra thin, and very delicate, so be careful with them! Extraordinary-ly light, I can’t feel them hanging off my earlobes, they’re all around classic, affordable and undeniable desirable. — mercedesromero

The hoop earrings are perfectly simple and exactly what I was looking for. Helen was very prompt with the creation and delivery. I loved and appreciated her updates through the process. The packaging was personalized and full of love. A quality product with a heartfelt feel. Wonderful. Definitely would recommend!
— kristinfinn

I so appreciate your work! My sister was very happy with her “petite-medium” gold hoop earrings. She also really enjoyed the packaging that in itself was a gift. Your talent is beautiful. Thank you so much for helping me wish my sister a wonderful birthday. We succeeded!
— willing2

…The earrings are perfect — exactly like I imagined. They are in my ears now. They remind me to be the gold that I am and are quite uplifting. So much love pouring from the package, too. Thank you. What a blessing. I treasure them.  tm

I love these earrings and the seller is the sweetest thing ever! Her personalized notes on the packaging were so cute and brought a smile to my face. I would definitely buy again…I may even purchase something tonight.  elizabethsavran

I bought these as a belated Valentine’s Day present for myself and I love them! Her personalization is the best, the dedication she puts into every piece and customer is fantastic. !! So happy!  elizabethsavran

Perfect! They are perfectly small and dainty! LOVE love LOVE! Thank you so much, would purchase again, seller was great!

I haven’t taken these off once since I received them almost a month ago. They’re perfect! I also loved that they arrived in the most beautiful, personalized packaging. Such a nice and unexpected touch. — jess

Helen is a true artist! These were exactly what I wanted, and she was as prompt as I have ever seen. I will definitely be ordering again. Creative passion is inspiring.  — asbartosiak

I gave these to my mom for Mother’s Day and she absolutely adores them. She swears she’ll never take these little lovies off . Thanks, Helen, for the sweet earrings and lovely packaging! — mintrat
