Hello there! A few times a week, I take a break from jewelry making and do other creative things that usually involve paint, sewing or paper. I’ve had a tall stack of wooden embroidery hoops in my studio for a few years now and finally put them to use. These sweet ornaments can be hung anywhere in your home or office (or leave off the ribbon and place them on a shelf). I plan to make some for Christmastime (replacing the leaves for red and white polka-dotted hearts stitched with gold or silver thread). Wouldn’t they be adorable tied to a gift as well?

(Scroll to the bottom of this post for the items you will need to make this DIY.)

You will need:

3″ embroidery hoops – 3″ is small. You can use bigger ones too – totally up to you!

Chunky yarn – I used a bamboo yarn I found at a local hobby shop.

Linen type fabric or any fabric that’s is thicker with a bit of texture

Your fave fall inspired fabric

Ribbon – I used hand-dyed silk from Of the Earth

Letter stamps from any hobby shop

Staz-on inkpad in brown

Embroidery floss and a needle


(Optional) fabric adhesive to lightly glue down cut-out leaf shape before you add a few stitches

(Optional) washi tape to use as a guide when you stamp your words

If you have any questions about how to make these, just leave me a question via the comments section of this post or my Pinterest pin and I will be happy to answer! Happy Creating!

Here are some of my favorite styles of Remy and Me. leverback earrings in 14k gold-fill. I have a pair of each in my jewelry box. I can’t live without them especially when I am going away for the weekend and just want to put in a pair of small earrings and forget about them :-)

Summer vacation has ended and that means I am back in my studio full-time. Hurray! I just listed new styles of my popular leverback earrings and plan to add many more in the upcoming weeks.

My love affair with this style of earring started when I lived in France (as a nanny after I graduated high school). I noticed leverbacks were a common style seen on European women and in the shops. Well, they were definitely on to something. Leverbacks are super-comfortable and secure. Remy and Me. styles are also very lightweight (another plus in my book). I design easy-to-wear, everyday styles that will become a staple in your jewelry box. They also make a great gift. I am surprised by how many American women haven’t worn this style but once they do, they are converts!

As far as pronunciation … I say lee-verback although some women I know say leh-verback. Both are right; it’s just a preference.
