Earrings – Summer Memories

This past week, the SparkleOn team began a discussion about how certain jewelry and outfits remind us of special occasions, happy days, and fun memories. We associate them with the emotions and activities from those moments, making the items worn dear to us (and difficult for us to give away if we are doing Spring cleaning!). We’ve taken a look at some of our SparkleOn jewelry and have created creative work exploring this idea that jewelry links us to the past. We’ll be posting this creative work every so often, so let us know what you think! To see these earrings on our online store, click here.

I wore these earrings practically every day last summer while visiting the coast! They shined in the sunshine and the colors were so inviting. Walking along the edge of the ocean nearly every morning, I relished the feel of the warm sand squishing between my toes and the ocean breeze kissing my skin. My friends and I would laugh and run away from the water’s edge as the tide came in, sweeping away the remnants of our footprints and evidence of our idol summer ventures. As we walked the boardwalk eating ice cream cones from the small beach cafe, we’d dream and plan adventures for the future. We’d stay up late watching bonfires burn on the beach and searching the night sky for shooting stars to wish on. I left the coast that summer with a bag of salt water taffy in one hand and the memories of summer days in the other.
