About

Welcome to DesignsByLadyE, your place for limited edition, one-of-a-kind (OOAK), homemade, handmade rings, bracelets, and necklaces. I design and make all the jewelry from home.

I started here on Etsy as a part time hobby, just trying to see if anyone liked what I made. I soon realized that to sell a product, any product, you have to be committed. I had a book shelf and desk when I started, I now have three book shelves, a desk, dining room table, and glass shelves. I have taken over the dining room!

I then understood what I as a designer was really about. I use quality products, I make unique jewelry and there is not going to be another piece of jewelry exactly like the ones I make out there. I am not like a big box store and will make 50 of the same thing to sell, just to sell. I put heart and soul into every piece that I make. I…

I am not like a big box store and will make 50 of the same thing to sell, just to sell. I put heart and soul into every piece that I make. I take my time and make sure that I love the piece of jewelry, or I will just start over.

I started playing with beads at a very young age. I sat at my mom's kitchen table while she was making dinner and I played with plastic string and plastic beads. I now have moved to my own kitchen table, but the materials I use are much different. I now play with glass and sterling silver wire. You do have to be careful walking around my table though, I may lose a bead from time to time and my family really does not like stepping on them.

I was contacted by my sister-in-law. Asked if I would be willing to talk to her friend about starting a business. We all met for lunch and I was so excited to share with her all of the things that I have learned. I did not have any assistance and had to just read for hours in the Etsy handbook and the forums to understand what I should be doing. I was thrilled to be able to pass on my knowledge to another. I think that is what being here on Etsy is all about. Being able to share, explore, connect, admire and believe that you can do anything you set your mind to.
