Welcome to my shop! My jewelry line is inspired by my admiration for gemstones. Most of my pieces are made with gemstones off all varieties and I will often include chain, silver, metal and brass to create many different styles in an effort to cater to different tastes.

I started making jewelry initially because I love being creative and making beautiful things. Jewelry was the one 'craft' that I had not yet explored.

I started making jewelry initially because I love being creative and making beautiful things. Jewelry was the one 'craft' that I had not yet explored. It has been fun and has given me an outlet for some down time when those times are needed. :-) When I first started making jewelry, I would wear the pieces that I had made and get compliments. I then chose to use my designs as gifts for family and friends. I was turned onto Etsy as a vehicle to sell what I had made and that's where I am now!

I work outside the home as a Special Education Paraeducator for the Marysville School District in a local elementary school. I am a one on one aid in a developmentally disabled preschool class. Our home office is part office and part my business....mostly my business with beading supplies and space. :-) I share this space with our guinea pig Harley and at times my husband who will need to use the office. We have 2 children who are 17 and 15.
