'Vampire Diaries' features earrings from Deltona designer

Nina Dobrev wore earrings designed with vampires in mind

DELTONA, Fla. – A Deltona jewelry designer had her handcrafted earrings featured on an episode of The Vampire Diaries on Oct. 10.

The character Elena Gilbert, played by actress Nina Dobrev, wore the earrings created by Gari Anne Kosanke and her company Bead Lovers Corner.

Kosanke is known for her European-inspired charm bracelets, key chains and accessories.

The earrings featured two Swarovski crystals paired with "eternity," links that Kosanke said were chosen because vampires live forever.
