There I studied jewelry, sculpture, painting and Italian culture while traveling Italy. This amazing experience further fueled my addiction to jewelry and specifically beads. My passion became making and buying beads, and designing necklaces that showcased beautiful beadwork.

Jewelry is truly my passion (or joy, or another word). Fortunately, I have met Michael Fortune, my wonderful husband, who has been my greatest supporter. Over the last two years, I have had the blessing to have great friends and family who hold jewelry parties for me where I can sell my work.

I can create beautiful wedding jewelry and custom pieces. I will frequently have new pieces and will be updating the site with new features. I invite you to shop the site and email me directly if you would like to make a purchase. I can accept credit cards for your convenience.

I just finished Photographing a new slew of pieces that will posted shortly.

I am currently looking for new galleries to display my work and looking for party hosts.

Currently, I am putting some pieces in Mary Martin& co and will be donating 25% to Haiti Relief.


Now every item I put on Etsy is on sale. Now Free shipping within the US.
Thank you for visiting.
