About

Carol's Jewelry Orchard offers unique, handcrafted costume and semi-precious jewelry of many styles. I began making jewelry eight years ago as a hobby. Since that time, I have designed and created hundreds of unique pieces. My pieces have been featured in two local gift boutiques over those five years. Usually, I make one of a kind items. Occasionally, I have been asked to replicate one of my designs. This has been especially true of my sister's bracelets, twisted triple bracelets, faith bracelets, and angel earrings. So, don't be afraid to inquire as to additional pieces if you really like something! Some of my replicated pieces were also used for wedding party gifts. Watches and earrings are a favorite for those occasions. My favorite medium is glass and crystal. This probably stems from a love of fine antique glass such as Steuben or Tiffany.

Watches and earrings are a favorite for those occasions. My favorite medium is glass and crystal. This probably stems from a love of fine antique glass such as Steuben or Tiffany. However, I have recently been using more natural gemstone elements and experimenting with wire work for variety. I love making jewelry as it brings out my creative spirit. My inspiration comes from the color of the beads and the colors found in nature. I especially like to do a monochromatic theme with variations in the tones of the beads. I try to price my items affordably, so as to offer a unique high quality item and enable my hobby of making jewelry to continue.

I have formal education as a Master's prepared Nurse, but have not worked as a nurse in a long time. My other hobbies include photography, gardening, and writing. I am an occasional substitute teacher and founder/teacher of a garden club for elementary aged children.

The midwest is where I call home with my husband and three children, two cats, and an occasional hamster!
