About

Hi there!
I'm Janis - the one who creates all the pieces you see here at Sweet Ride Designs. I've been designing and selling jewelry for years now, and was drawn into metalwork more recently, as I really wanted more control over my designs. I instantly fell in love with the endless creative possibilities that metalwork has provided!

I love working with my hands, creating, dreaming up designs, marketing materials, graphic design, the whole enchilada. Aside from my love of art which has always been a big part of my life, my other passions are family and travel. My husband has always allowed me to "spread my wings" so to speak, and been my biggest fan, even through the tough times when I was not making money. I will always love him for that!

Hi there!
I'm Janis - the one who creates all the pieces you see here at Sweet Ride Designs. I've been designing and selling jewelry for years now, and was drawn into metalwork more recently, as I really wanted more control over my designs. I instantly fell in love with the endless creative possibilities that metalwork has provided!

I love working with my hands, creating, dreaming up designs, marketing materials, graphic design, the whole enchilada. Aside from my love of art which has always been a big part of my life, my other passions are family and travel. My husband has always allowed me to "spread my wings" so to speak, and been my biggest fan, even through the tough times when I was not making money. I will always love him for that! My Australian Kelpie dog, Dublin, on the other hand, is rather a silent partner - keeping me company during many long nights working tirelessly as the hours pass. My newest and most loved challenge is Tristan, my sweet baby boy - who keeps me on my toes all day long, and has made me a firm believer that yes, anything is possible when you have a passion for it.

That is about all, in a nutshell for now. Oh, and what happened to the travel? Well, that was a thing of the past. I do miss it terribly, but someday will be back on a plane again, inspired by this amazing world we live in. For now, I am content with mentally revisiting the snow capped mountains of Switzerland, the green pastures of Ireland, and the warmth and beauty of Thailand...when I have time to even think about it!

I enjoy every minute of designing custom jewelry, and find great satisfaction in creating a memorable experience; from the moment you receive your package in the mail, to putting on your jewelry piece for the very first time. Creating beautiful jewelry is my career (not hobby), and my source of income while I happily stay home with my son, for now.

I hope you enjoy your jewelry and can feel the care, love and energy that I put into each and every piece. Thank you for letting me be a part of your "ride" and making your journey more permanent in metal!
