Naomi's Profile

About

I'm Naomi & I love making jewelry that will make YOU happy. Why the unusual shop name? Well, I absolutely love hippos & I love sci fi, so I combined the two! I originally got involved in beading as my creative outlet when I was looking for a new job. I made a few little things for friends, and they loved them, so I kept going and started offering some of my creations for sale to you!

I create unique jewelry with sterling silver wire, glass & stone beads, scrabble tiles, & resin. I create custom photo jewelry & keychains/charms with your own photographs to hold your special memories. I make bracelets & necklaces adjustable so they will fit more people (this is also great for those who deal with swelling or weight fluctuations!) I will make custom sizes of my Swarovski pearl rings (just ask!) I am always happy to entertain requests to 'tweak' my pieces: for previous customers,…

I will make custom sizes of my Swarovski pearl rings (just ask!) I am always happy to entertain requests to 'tweak' my pieces: for previous customers, I have switched out pierced for clip-on findings in my earrings, created chains with magnet clasps for necklaces, and occasionally created a custom creation entirely from scratch! Please convo me with your questions so that I can let you know what is possible!

My goal is to do as many things as possible by hand in my jewelry. I love learning new wire techniques and I have made handmade earwires, pendant bails, chains & clasps for my pieces. I'm also learning to work with resin and make pendants & keychains using original photos and beautiful japanese paper on upcycled scrabble tiles! I also love learning other crafts-right now I am learning to needle felt & knit and you may soon see some of these creations in my shop!

I live in Massachusetts with my husband, two very handsome cats (see my about page or Facebook for photos) & a turtle.
