Janet Braisted's Profile
Welcome to my profile! I am a mother, scientist, and jewelry artist. At the moment I am putting my role as scientist on hold to spend more time with my two young sons, ages 8 and 11. They grow so fast! In what spare time I have (!) I am designing and handcrafting jewelry using gemstones, metals, leather, linen, glass and crystals. I also incorporate chainmaille, precious metal clay (PMC), and macrame techniques in my designs. I love to learn new things, so you'll always find a wide array of unique designs in my shop.
I use only high-quality materials and gemstones. Most of the components I use are sterling or Thai silver (up to 99% pure silver), and I create charms and pendants out of precious metal clay (PMC), which when fired becomes fine silver (approx. 99% pure silver).
I specialize in simple, eclectic, ethnic-inspired…
