My shipment was delayed because of illness, so Anna packed matching kyanite earrings and a second pendant free. All the items are beautiful and very well made. I will not hesitate to purchase from her again. Anna’s workmanship is exceptional!

When Life Hands You Lemons - Make Jewelry

After a series of accidents in the 1990s left me in chronic pain, I stopped working in order to get some much needed rest and to take better care of my health. Having worked in the public sector most of my career, I soon found myself bored and depressed on top of chronic pain.

I began dabbling in a variety of arts and crafts, and soon found that my passion lied in jewelry making. Having always been a lover of rocks and minerals and all things sparkly, I have found that art is an outlet that helps me escape pain as well as an opportunity to meet a host of new friends and customers!

Much to my surprise, since I never thought of myself as particulary artistic, I was good at it! My jewelry has been featured in "Art Jewelry", "Bead and Button", "Wire Jewelry Artist" and several other publications. Special orders are occasionally accepted, so if you have a particular stone or coin you want wrapped, feel free to ask!

    My degree is in Public Administration, but jewelry making is my passion. I spend a lot of time searching high and low for just the right stones, things that I find beautiful or interesting, and create each piece by hand using only wire, no soldering.

Jewelry is such a personal object that not only reflects your style, but it can also have sentimental attachments and memories associated with it. We adorn ourselves to make us look and feel beautiful - so why look like everybody else? A one of a kind piece of jewelry is just like you - one of a kind! So you've come to the right place! Enjoy your Etsy experience and I hope you will consider owning one of my creations!

P.S. - this is a smoke free, pet free home!
