Simple, sophisticated well-made jewelry with feminine style and an influence from the Victorian and the European.

I love the look of a beautiful old patina, so many of the items you see include oxidized sterling and fine silver, antiqued brass and copper, and rich jewel-tone color palettes.

My other passion is painting. I have another etsy shop that represents that side of my creativity. Please visit that shop at: http://www.sandboxcards.etsy.com. I also have a website, www.sandboxcardsandgifts.com, and I can also be found at many local shops in the Northwest.

A little about me personally - I live on a beautiful island in the Northwest, with my wonderful husband, four children, two cats and eleven chickens. We have a big vegetable garden where we enjoy growing a lot of our own food, and playing in the forest around our house!

Thank you very much for choosing to buy handmade products! Please let me know if you have an interest in customized work. I enjoy working on unique projects!
