About

Welcome, and thanks for visiting my shop! I also offer a line of fine jewelry made exclusively with semiprecious gemstones and metals, which you can visit here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/perseid

A self-taught jewelry designer, I design and handcraft all of the pieces in my shop. I find my greatest satisfaction in creating jewelry that my customers (myself included!) absolutely love to wear, and I specialize in elegant, colorful, limited-edition designs (I go for bright, clear, saturated colors: drab really isn't my thing). When I began making jewelry years ago for myself, my family and my friends, I would rarely make a design more than once, a habit that has more or less carried over into my Etsy shop. This means that many of my pieces are truly one-of-a-kind: sometimes I can only make one, and you won't see it anywhere else, ever! It also means that my inventory is always…

A self-taught jewelry designer, I design and handcraft all of the pieces in my shop. I find my greatest satisfaction in creating jewelry that my customers (myself included!) absolutely love to wear, and I specialize in elegant, colorful, limited-edition designs (I go for bright, clear, saturated colors: drab really isn't my thing). When I began making jewelry years ago for myself, my family and my friends, I would rarely make a design more than once, a habit that has more or less carried over into my Etsy shop. This means that many of my pieces are truly one-of-a-kind: sometimes I can only make one, and you won't see it anywhere else, ever! It also means that my inventory is always fresh, as I am creating new and unique items every week.

I hail from Chester County, Pennsylvania: the land of horses, Quakers, mushrooms, and Wyeth landscapes (literally - NC's studio is 30 minutes from my parents' house. Pretty awesome). I grew up with flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and a mom who works at a public garden; cows, cats, apple orchards and canoe trips down the Brandywine; family dinners and adventurous parents who took us on summer vacations across the country; and a twin brother. I'm fascinated by all things astronomical, and traveling the world is my passion - one that I am lucky to share with my husband with whom I've visited some amazing places!

All of these things - from my favorite books, writers (my shop name is a nod to a W.H. Auden book), places and travels, to natural wonders, astronomy, botany and anything to do with water (what can I say, I'm a Pisces) - inspire and inform my design style and the materials I use. I believe in creating pieces that make me happy; using high-quality metals, beads, and semiprecious stones; paying close attention to detail both in my designs and in my naming and descriptions; and taking delicious photos.

If you have questions or comments, special requests, or custom orders, don't be shy - I would love to hear from you! You can send me a message through Etsy or email me at acertainworld [!at] gmail.com. Want to keep up with new listings and shop sales & specials?

Cheers,
Meg
