Circular gold hoop. 

Cork triangle accent.

1.25" wide by 1.5" tall

Named after my friend, Colleen.  

You know how diner waitresses call you "honey" and it sounds perfect...but then when you try to call someone "honey" it comes off all weird and awkward.  Well, Colleen has the gift.  She calls everyone she loves "lovey", and when she says it you feel SO SPECIAL and LOVED!  

Colleen is a remarkable woman who inspires me.  She's the Executive Director of Reach For Home.  Reach For Home is on a mission to end homelessness in North Sonoma County.  Colleen partners with those struggling or at risk of losing housing.  Her work is so important, and she rarely gets the credit she deserves.     

I'm honored to make earrings which embody the essence of Colleen.  

To start, Colleen has the most beautiful, voluminous wavy hair.  She asked me to design an earring with a metal accent to standout against her hair.  Her hair has a tendency to swallow up any earring. 

I chose a gold circle hoop.  This hoop is not overpowering or too large, yet still makes a statement. 

Then, a triangular piece of cork pierces down the center.  

The triangle represents so much about Colleen.

Colleen has incredibly SHARP humor.  The woman used to do stand up comedy!  Nothing gets past Colleen, and her comedic punchlines are always delivered with perfect timing. 

Colleen has incredibly SHARP wit and intelligence.  Along her journey as a homeless advocate, she's met some challenging naysayers.  People who attack, demean, and threaten her directly for the work she is doing.  Colleen handles these setbacks with grace.  She's not about fighting back.  Instead, she believes that discussion can dismantle the stigma and fear around homelessness.

The circle metal is the symbol of love, inclusiveness, and unity.

The triangular cork symbolizes her sharp humor, intelligence, and strength to break through challenges!
