You will find a wide array of unique and one-of-a-kind pieces in many different styles and designs for every whim or mood you may have, all of which are personally designed and hand-made by myself. There is great selection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings for all ages and occasions.

I am also fascinated with the healing and mystical properties of different stones as well and try to include a brief description with each of the pieces.

I hope that you enjoy looking and if you have any questions or you would like something made especially for yourself or as a gift please contact me as I do make special order items.
