Angela Lensch Gallery has a variety of Clip-On Earring options for all those women out there without pierced ears. Nearly all of Angela’s handmade earrings are now able to be converted to be a Clip-On Earring. With Angela tending the shop and her studio in the back of the gallery it only takes a few minutes to have a pair of earrings switched over. And to top off this great opportunity, Angela has a variety of Clip-On Earring styles. “My favorite new Clip-On option are the Hoops! From the size of a dime to hoops larger then a silver dollar. I have four different hoop earring sizes now available for non-pierced ears, in both gold and silver.” Also available are the traditional half ball lever clip-ons, a similar style without the ball and the newest, a filigree half ball (featured in picture with my signature “Woven Pearl” earrings. Clip-On earrings can be hard to find or only come in a limited number of options, this is not the case at Angela Lensch Gallery. “Lets give Clip-On Earrings a new definition; from simple drops, to fabulous dangles, to stylish HOOPS!” shares Angela with enthusiasm. Stop in today to see these new fantastic styes!

The silver framework components are finished and look wonderful. Agam’s metalsmith skills are top notch. He uses many of the skills and tools that have been handed down for six generations. You can see the handmade skill in every piece.
Today we woke up very early (note the puffy eyes) to take a sunrise boat ride down the holy Ganges River in the oldest city in the world: Varanasi. This city is amazing. The river is lined with Ghat upon Ghat. The term ghat refers to a series of steps leading down to a body of water, usually a holy river.
Enjoy the photos.
We arrived in Varsnasi around 1:00 in the afternoon after a 14 hour night train from Agra, dropped off our heavy bags at the Hotel Divya in the Assi Ghat area of Varanasi and had some lunch (we were starving after the long train ride).
Then we headed to Suneeta Jewellers to meet with the famous sixth generation jeweler Agam Narayan Singh. The meeting went great. Agam is a joy to work with and an incredible jeweler who prides him self on creating quality jewelry.
The samples of my custom ordered framework components as well as bead caps for the saree and fabric wrapped beads will be done in a few days. We will then go over the components and place the order. I will pass back through Varanasi in a few weeks and pick the finished work. I am very excited to be collaborating with Agam and to unite two worlds through the art of jewelry.
We spent Leap Day in Agra touring the Taj Mahal. A jewelry artist/sculptors dream, and there I was (pinching myself). It was truly inspirational! We met up with our friends Brett and Elise and enjoyed several roof top cafe’s with views of the Taj. It felt surreal to have this amazing temple in the background. Fantastic!
