Now I have a steady business and am always looking for new items to add. The hardest part is actually getting them set up. I plan on really focusing on getting my new items up, so that they will be available for everyone to purchase ASAP. If in the meantime you are looking for something specific, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

Whimsical Charms & Other Jewelry Designs was started in December 2009 to showcase my fun and unusual direction that I was taking in jewelry design and offerings.
