About

Hi and welcome to my little corner of the world... full of beads, wire, gemstones, wood, leather, clay, shells, more wire and more beads! And a couple of cats, who are thrilled when I drop a toy, I mean, a bead (or two or three!) for them to chase around the floor.

By day...
I am a full time graphic artist and mom to two wonderful boys... and very recently I have been blessed to marry my high-school sweetheart!! Yes, I am on cloud nine... life is good, birds are singing, people are breaking into song & dance....

And by night...
I am a self-taught jewelry artist who could stay up all hours content to play with my beads and wire. My comfort zone and complete bliss is working with earth tones and organic materials. I love creating items with a rustic and sometimes vintage feel. I struggle with having…

And by night...
I am a self-taught jewelry artist who could stay up all hours content to play with my beads and wire. My comfort zone and complete bliss is working with earth tones and organic materials. I love creating items with a rustic and sometimes vintage feel. I struggle with having way too many ideas, and not enough time to try them all.... but one day I will get there.

You made that out of what??
Semi-precious gemstones are my first love... Each one is a true piece of nature’s art! However, I do so enjoy using ‘found objects’ to create a wearable piece of art. Guitar picks, old coins, wine corks, golf tees, old keys, legos, beer caps, old bottle caps, leather scraps, just about anything you can put a hole in or wrap a wire around, i will try to turn into jewelry.

The best R&R ever...
Repairs and Re-purposing!
If I can fix a friend’s beloved piece of jewelry and give it new life, that is sooo awesome. And I love being able to take someone’s old necklace that belonged to their grandmother... but it’s just not quite their style... and re-working it into a bracelet & earrings that they enjoy wearing.

Custom orders?! I’m not afraid!!
If you are inspired by what you see in my shop, but want something a little different, convo me. I have tons of beads and supplies in a wide variety of colors. Even some colors out of my comfort zone... like pink! We could work together to come up with something as special and unique as you are!

It makes my heart smile to see people truly enjoying my jewelry. Take a look around my shop. Perhaps you will see something you would like to give to a friend, or to yourself.... nothing wrong with treating yourself to something that makes you feel awesome!

Stay and visit awhile... etsy is a nice place to be!
