Several years ago, my best friend Ann introduced me to making jewelry by taking me to a local bead store in Cary, NC. I am forever in her debt.

In addition, I am a Self-Representing Artist, Jewelry Designer, Membership number 3316. This means I only sell jewelry which I design and create. I take more time and care when selling to my customer and I have a higher interest in guaranteeing 100% customer satisfaction. You also have an opportunity to learn about the jewelry you purchase making the purchase more meaningful and personal.

If you do not see exactly what you want, please send me a convo and tell me what you would like. I am happy to do special orders. Most bracelets and necklaces may be shortened without additional expense but, unfortunately, due to the uniqueness of my work, I do not have the materials to lengthen bracelets or necklaces.
