About

My jewelry 'career' started with a set of wine glass charms in a store and the always-fatal words - "I can do better than that". Over 6 years, and many compliments and requests later, I have found that I can, and do, make jewelry that people love to wear.

A little while later, I "discovered" polymer clay in much the same way - I wanted drawer pulls for a dresser I stripped and stained, but couldn't find any I liked.

I started out designing just for myself, making pieces that I like to wear. Fortunately for me, more than a few people have the same taste in jewelry as I do. I make jewelry because I like taking all the little bits and pieces I find everywhere - beads, wire and what-not, and turning them into something that is useful, pretty and a reflection of the person wearing it.

Like my "baubles" but want something just a little bit different? No problem at all - I cheerfully take requests! Contact me at bibelotsjewelry [!at] hotmail.com to let me know what I make just for you. Adjustments to most items can certainly be done, just let me know what you would like and give me a chance to see what I can do.

Note: I can change the findings for earrings to your choice at no additional charge, even for clip findings. Just convo me!

Remember these two things as you go through life:

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.

Beauty is in the eye of its beholder.
