About

I looked to the Stars it was like a Dream I pictured Jewels at my fingertips.

Hi... My name is Jeanne
I graduated with a BFA with an emphasis in Metals and Fibers in 2002 from UW Oshkosh. I am a full-time artist working from a very tiny studio space in my home. I am an animal lover and activist. I volunteer at the local humane society shelter.
I enjoy creating new things and I like to experiment with materials, designs, and ideas. My motto is "Anything can be made into jewelry" and I do just that. I have been making and selling jewelry for over 18 years. It is the one thing I always return to, so that must mean it is my calling.

I make a variety of different styles of jewelry such as: eclectic, collage, funky-chunky,traditional,romantic,natural/earthy,stitched, and what I call my "just crazy jewelry" (or…

I looked to the Stars it was like a Dream I pictured Jewels at my fingertips.

Hi... My name is Jeanne
I graduated with a BFA with an emphasis in Metals and Fibers in 2002 from UW Oshkosh. I am a full-time artist working from a very tiny studio space in my home. I am an animal lover and activist. I volunteer at the local humane society shelter.
I enjoy creating new things and I like to experiment with materials, designs, and ideas. My motto is "Anything can be made into jewelry" and I do just that. I have been making and selling jewelry for over 18 years. It is the one thing I always return to, so that must mean it is my calling.

I make a variety of different styles of jewelry such as: eclectic, collage, funky-chunky,traditional,romantic,natural/earthy,stitched, and what I call my "just crazy jewelry" (or more lovingly called blood,sweat, and tears..ha,ha). Those are the pieces that I usually make for friends/family or as artist trades because they take sooooooo very long. All of my jewelry is based on what tickles my fancy at the time. Currently, resin and steampunk jewelry is my new passion. Almost all my jewelry has a collage flair mixed into its design.

Once every 6 months or so I am fascinated by a new technique or style of jewelry and start to incorporate that into my extensive repertoire of jewelry ideas and/or designs. I am easily bored with working on one thing at a time, thus, the varied collection of different techinques and styles of jewelry available within my shop. I am always searching for new and exciting avenues to explore to expland my knowledge and love of jewelry creating. These are some of the prevelant techiques that I use in my creations (are you ready for this?): decoupage, polymer clay, soldered glass, bottle caps,resin, steampunk, kitschy plastic collage/charms, aluminum cans, beaded, stitched, trashion/vintage/upcycled/recycled components, and wire wrapping....whew....I am sure that there are others, but that is enough for now!! Too many ideas not enough time!!!

**** I try to reuse packaging materials to help the environment and pass along low shipping costs to my customers. So don't be surprised if you receive your bauble in an altoids tin or candy box...yummy stuff removed(of course). Just trying to do my part to stay green.****

I hope you enjoy my work and visit my shop often!!!!! I am always open to custom work, comments, and or suggestions. I am also pretty good at repairing jewelry. I have fixed a lot of "unfixable" or hard to fix items. Maybe I could repair that precious piece for you!!! Convo me and we'll chat.

Ok the boring stuff: The fine print

My jewelry is made with tiny parts and is not intended for small children. The jewelry should not be submerged in water. I do not offer returns on jewelry. I strive to make my jewelry durable. But I know that jewelry breaks so I have to set some rules, sorry. I will repair your jewelry for up to 1yr. after purchase. You are responsible for the shipping costs. It must arrive packaged securely and all the parts of the item must be intacted. If a piece arrives with parts missing it will be returned without repairs done. I will convo you before I return the item. Maybe we could work something out.
I am a very flexiable and honest person. In no way are these rules completely set in stone. I want you to be completely 100% satisified. Convo me and we will chat.
If you want to purchase insurance please convo me before you pay. That way I can send you an revised invoice. I strongly recommend insurance as I can not be responsible for items lost,damaged, or stolen during transit through the USPS.

Please convo with any and all questions you have before purchase. Thank you for reading the fine print. Have a great day!!!!
