Go on! You deserve it! If not you’m, then whom?

**Disclaimer** Although I create jewelry, while this site is under construction, most of what you’ll find are supplies. I’m simply way overstocked on supplies, and since I anticipate that descriptions of my jewelry will require much more thought and consideration, I thought I’d start the site with supplies, which I’m hoping won’t take as long to describe.

Please know that all my jewelry- beads, findings, and finished pieces- are made in the U.S. (unless otherwise specified) and are guaranteed to really and truly be whatever material they are advertised to be. In other words, if I say an item is sterling silver, the item is sterling silver. It is not silver plated, silvertone metal, or any other variety of wannabe silver. The same rings true for all stones, shell, bone, wood, crystals, and glass in my collection.

You may be quite amused by the strange variety of my supplies. I will not bore you with my rationalizations for my massive collection of cheerleader charms. If you’re a cheerleader, a cheerleader mom (plenty of those down here in Texas!), or a cheerleading fundraiser, I sincerely hope you consider purchasing as many of my sterling silver charms as your yearly salary permits!!!!

UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, ALL OF MY CHARMS AND FINDINGS ARE SEAMLESS, MADE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY STERLING SILVER, AND ARE AT LEAST 30% LOWER THAN RETAIL PRICE.

All of my stone, shell, wood, and glass beads are made of the finest materials I could locate- while remaining “clean and green*”- and are 20-50% lower than retail price for clean and green shopping. If you find a lower price anywhere for the supplies I advertise, you can rest assured knowing that my supplies are “the genuine product” and have not caused harm to our peoples or our planet. My hope is to find creative homes for my surplus supplies!
*I GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO ENSURE I PURCHASE MY SUPPLIES FROM ENTITIES PRACTICING ONLY FAIR TRADE AND CONSERVATIONISM.
Most of my finished pieces could be described as “Southwestern,” and have been quite popular in various artisan shows in which I have participated. I would love to see some of that popularity move to other areas of our country, and I’m doing my small part in making sure that happens. I really don’t have the time to participate in such shows these days, but I’d love to find adoring homes for my finished pieces! (Please, won’t you adopt one???) Thus, my participation on Etsy.
Finally, some of my pieces appeal only to those “rare someones”- usually fun and funky someones. I made many pieces as custom orders, before I became wise to the ways of jewelry-stranders (certainly no pun intended!) It wasn’t uncommon for people to order the strangest things, then never answer my call when their pieces were finished. On the flip side of that, some of the funnest and funkiest people I’ve ever met have purchased pieces I thought would appeal to no one. I’ve made some really great friends in this hobby of mine, and most of them have been of the “fun and funky” variety!
Based on my history with custom-orders, I am more than happy to complete these for you, but I will require at least partial payment for the finished piece before I begin it. Don’t worry, I’ll provide you with mock-ups or photos of the pieces before they are finished so you can give me further direction if needed.
Oh, and by the way, I love to upcycle, but fewer and fewer people are discarding great stuff these days. Still, periodically you’ll find in my shop someone’s trash turned into fun home décor items.
I’m excited about selling on Etsy, but please know that I fancy myself as an artsy-fartsy gal, totally right-brained, and am therefore a techno-moron. Your first visit to my “shop,” I may only have one listing. I will likely be updating my shop as often as I can find someone willing to serve as my own personal geek squad! If you don’t find what you are looking for today, please consider saving my shop as a favorite and come back to see what I have available in another few weeks!!!
Here’s to tons of fun as you Peacock What You Love!!!
**I will attempt to customize anything! If you don’t see it, CONVO me.
