Jewelry designer Loralee Kolton works like a master on miniature canvases formed into earrings. She is a connoisseur of art beads and has a way of making them dance in a saucy tango. I've dubbed Loralee the Earring Whisperer and she will be sharing super fun earring projects with us each month. Lorelee's latest designs can be found in her Etsy shop but they seem to be swiped up on Facebook almost as soon as she shares them!
