Welcome! I have been handcrafting all my life. I started out making drawings and paintings, then ceramics. Eventually I worked my way up to creating jewelry and needle crafts for family and friends.Cats Jammies is where anyone can find my hand crafted items.

My jewelry is different and unique. Most items include more than one media-like bead stringings, wire wrapping, bent wire, wire weaving, bead weaving, and Japanese cord weaving (Kumihimo). I have a unique stash of beads including glass, semi-precious and precious stones, pearls, and a wide variety of beads from vintage jewelry. If you see a piece you like, but the color is wrong for you or it is too long or too short, just contact me. I'm sure I can come up with a solution. I love to craft items to order, so if you don't see exactly what you want, just ask. I also like to re-work old, broken, or unused jewelry so…

In addition to jewelry I make samplers for weddings, births and anniversaries. These special samplers come with a reading guide to help the recipient understand the symbols and meaning of the piece. A sampler can be a wonderful gift for a person who is difficult to buy for. The sampler can be a symbol of love and respect which will be handed down to future generations. If you want to know the value of a sampler look at Antiques Roadshow. Antique samplers, when they appear, are always highly valued and the source of enthusiastic commentary. My samplers are not yet antiques, but they are unique and handcrafted using hand dyed fabrics (or undyed if you chose), silks, and cottons to create an original design with meaning for the recipient.

In the future Cats Jammies will also be a source for organically grown cat nip and cat nip toys; original tee-shirt designs; special beads; and other unique items.
