Nothing make me happier than when someone get a piece of my handcrafted jewelry and loves it. Not only do they get a nice piece of jewelry but gives me a feeling of pride and warmth like no other.

I can do custom orders on your coin, or if you have a certain animal, fish, bird, boat, whatever you can think of, please feel free to ask.
PS, the pic in my profile is myself,my beautiful "I can't believe she put up with me all these years " wife --without her , I Never would have made it And my beautiful daughter that teaches underprivileged kids. I am so proud of the both of them and so happy they are in my life,
