Featured Artist: Katrin Lerman Jewelry

Be My Valentine Necklace
with Silver, Pearl, and Coral

Today's artist comes from a family of makers and has been doing jewelry since she was a little girl (if making friendship bracelets is considered jewelry. She is originally from Germany, then settled in Massachusetts almost ten years ago.

Katrin now has a beautiful baby girl and tries to spend every free minute (and those of you who have a baby know that there are few) creating jewelry. Her sketch book is filling up with ideas and she can’t wait to get working on all those ideas and designs!!!

In honor of Valentine's Day, I had to choose this beautiful heart pendant. It's made from pearls and coral, and great for all year 'round, not just V-Day! Also, the earrings pictured below had to be included because being from the south Texas coast, we don't see much snow, so "Snow Queen" stood out at me not only for the name, but the beautiful design.

You can find all of Katrin's designs at her Etsy shop, as well as her second shop that she's opened up with her sister. For more behind the scenes information visit her blog at http://katrinlermanjewelry.blogspot.com
