Check me out on Etsy!

Hello to all & thanks for stopping by!

I just set up a shop on Etsy, and am so excited!

About 3 years ago I started to participate in craft shows around my area. I really enjoy being able to meet everyone that shows interest in my jewelry. My jewelry designs have also been featured in various shops in my area. I now have decided, after being told over and over again by family and friends, to set up shop on the internet.

I make jewelry, jewelry, jewelry. I love jewelry! My whole life I have been around relatives that handmade jewelry and it has now inspired me to do the same. I first started out with simple beaded bracelets, and now I make everything! Baby jewelry, adult bracelets, anklets, necklaces, earrings, pendants, and rings. I also have enjoyed being able to expand my own jewelry collection in the process.

My new
est designs are wire wrapped pendants, which I started learning how to make about 6 months ago. It takes some time for me to pick out everything to use in my wire wrapped pendants, because I am so picky. I have to have everything perfect. All the components in my pendants have to match and all the wire has to lay a certain way. I have to make sure the necklace cord goes with everything in the pendant. Although, some people prefer to wear them as a brooch versus a necklace; I like the fact that my pendants retain their beauty no matter how they are worn. The pictures below are a just a few of the many wire wrapped pendants I have made and sold. My pendants are one of a kind and I find it really hard to try to match a design already made, it's easier just to start new! Although, I usually can get stones that appear similar they all have their own characteristics. I love finishing the pendants off with beads strung on the wire that compliment each individual stone. Wire wrapped pendants are such a fun, creative way to step up the way you wear jewelry.

Everything I make is handmade with love and I find it very hard not to keep for my personal collection of jewelry.
