Aurora's Original Creations

All unique, original, handmade jewelry. No two pieces made alike-unless by special order- custom orders welcome- sports teams are a favorite! Use the 'Contact' link for any special requests (make longer, shorter, prefer red instead of pink, maybe more than one of something- whatever!)

About me and how this started... I am a single mom who sometimes has insomnia. What do you do at 2am that is quiet- put beads on string. I started making jewelry for family and friends 12 years ago. The compliments and joy they showed inspired me to share my creations with others. After a few years, I put the beads away.

A few years ago, my son was accepted as a People to People Student Ambassador and traveled abroad. This trip of a lifetime required a substantial investment and I had no clue. Those…

About me and how this started... I am a single mom who sometimes has insomnia. What do you do at 2am that is quiet- put beads on string. I started making jewelry for family and friends 12 years ago. The compliments and joy they showed inspired me to share my creations with others. After a few years, I put the beads away.

A few years ago, my son was accepted as a People to People Student Ambassador and traveled abroad. This trip of a lifetime required a substantial investment and I had no clue. Those beads hidden in the bottom of the closet became my inspiration- and I opened a webpage. I started with a few pieces, a donation button, and prayers- lots of prayers!

In 3 months, I raised what was needed for his trip, and was so 'hooked' on my beading again, I swore not to give it up. ETSY gave me a new place to display my designs, become part of a community, and follow my success in ways I was unable to do before!

My beading room looks like a warehouse- every color, size, shape glass bead you can imagine- acrylic in 'categories' fancy, colorful, faceted, shapes- and don't get me started on silver and gold findings- pearls, pick a color, or shade, send me a swatch or color reference and I swear I have it here. I have designed pieces for weddings, birthdays, holidays, sports fans, and even newborns.

I'd love to make a piece especially for you or your special occasion, family and friends, or grab something I have already completed- satisfaction is guaranteed!

Thanks for visiting my little slice of ETSY!
