Love is in the Air! - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - February 3, 2016

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, it seems where ever you go these days, "Love is in the Air"  with all the massive displays of Valentine's cards, chocolates, stuffed animals and such.  Last year the total retail expenditure for Valentine's Day was a whopping $18.9 billion.  Yes, that is with a "B" - a record for sales.  It was estimated that the average person celebrating February 14 shelled out $142.31.  Men spent about $100 more on gifts than women:  $190.53 vs. $96.58.  Candy, flowers and jewelry are the three most popular gifts.  Interestingly, about 20% of people bought a Valentine's gift for their pet!

New Handmade Jewelry at Shadow Dog Designs

January has been a very busy time creating new jewelry, photographing and listing those pieces in my Indiemade shop.  Valentine's Day is quickly approaching with the resulting hearts and love, pink and red jewelry flooding the markets - which I have also done.  Although quite a few heart pieces have already sold so you won't find many heart related items in this post.  The pieces being shared are favorites, however, since they have more of a boho Valentine's flair, making the jewelry able to be worn all year long.  Traditional Valentine's Day designs or not, any of these one of a kind handmade necklaces or earrings will make exquisite gifts for a loved one.
