These handcrafted earrings should be on your fashion radar

Who doesn't love a pair of cute statement earrings that will guarantee to make even the blandest outfit pop? Whether you prefer a subtle flex or you want to turn heads, Cariñitos certainly has all the gems for your next shopping splurge.

The statement earrings were made by entrepreneur and University of Houston graduate Daniela Pinzon. While developing the handmade earrings, she was inspired to name her business Cariñitos, Spanish for love and affection. 

"I wanted every customer who buys my earrings to know how much time and attention I put into making them," Daniela says. "Every pair is different and I want whoever is wearing it to know I made it with the most care and love that I could."

One of Daniela's biggest inspirations for launching Cariñitos came from her mother, Sandra Arevalo. "I was very artistic because of her. She paints all the time and makes jewelry and she always told me to have a hobby that I could turn into a side hustle," Daniela says.

While in quarantine, Daniela put her mother's advice into practice and focused on crafting handmade jewelry. She initially made the earrings exclusively for close family and friends, but the earrings were so *fabulous* they encouraged her to launch a business. 

Daniela soon launched Cariñitos in late August and it's quickly becoming a fan favorite on Instagram. The collection is an infusion of her Colombian culture and shared experiences amongst the various countries she visited.

“I like to express inclusivity," she says. "Being Latina and having a diverse upbringing, I want to bring that to my earrings so people can feel included regardless of what they look like.”
