About

Welcome to cJoyOriginals!

I'm Carol and I live with my three wonderful cats in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.....beautiful Minnesota. My shop name is ME......"cJoy" is for Carol Joy. When I was younger I never liked my middle name, but as I got older, I grew to love it. Now Joy is a part of my passion for creating handmade jewelry. And I chose "Originals" because I love to make one-of-a-kind jewelry.

I have been creating handmade jewelry since I was in college, mostly for myself, family and friends. I started out just making gifts for people, and then I started selling my jewelry to co-workers and others. When I found Etsy, I decided to take the jump into selling online......so now, I am excited to share my jewelry with you, too!

I'm a bead fiend!! I love to find new beads, and can never have enough beads! I create my jewelry with many types of beads.....lots of colors, shapes and sizes. I'm also a chain fanatic! I love finding different kinds and colors of chain - large and small, delicate and chunky. I like to recycle jewelry, both old and new.....taking the pieces apart and using them in new jewelry.

Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry I create are my multi-chain necklaces, toggle clasp necklaces, long charm necklaces, leather wrap and button bracelets. I am always creating new designs in my head and always looking for new beads, chains, and charms to create with.

And last, but not least.....I am a cat lover! My cats have brought incredible joy into my life and I want to give something back to help other kitties. Therefore, 10% of each purchase made in my shop will be donated to Caring for Cats, a no-kill cat shelter located in the Twin Cities.

Please come back and visit again.
I hope my jewelry brings you joy every day!
Carol
