I've loved and worn jewelry as long as I can remember! Along with wearing it, I've also made and sold it over the years, starting at about nine, when I made pipe cleaner & aluminum foil rings and beaded elastic bracelets and sold them to my classmates.

However, I didn't really get serious about it until I took a wireworking class at our local community college a few years ago. I was hooked! I began by making jewelry for myself, then branched out to making it for others, when friends began to ask me where I got my jewelry.

My favorite thing to make is earrings, where my motto is, the bigger, the better - if they don't double as Christmas ornaments or fishing lures, why bother?

However, if you prefer them a bit smaller, I do make a few more subtle designs. I'm also willing to make a smaller scale or differently colored version of some of my designs, if you're interested. And since I don't have pierced ears myself, I'm always willing to put clips on earrings instead, if it's possible, for no extra charge.

I also do a lot of custom work (making earrings to coordinate with an existing necklace, designing a piece to go with a favorite outfit, etc.) and jewelry repairs (such as restringing a broken or too-short necklace, replacing a broken clasp, changing pierced earrings to clip-on and vice versa...) If you have something that needs fixed, FB email me and let's talk!
