About

I started out a nurse but have been in the arts and crafts business for over 20 years after getting my degree in art I played with different jobs in art and now I have settled with custom jewelry and pottery. I have been making my "Quality Jewelry that the Working person can afford" for 10 years now. I love when I can make a piece from stones, beads or glass that everyone thinks should cost 3 to 5 times the price and sell it for a price anyone can afford.

We use coated 49 strand stainless steel wire in our creations that are flexible to allow movement and motion. Our clasps are made from nickle-free pewter, sterling silver Plated or solid sterling silver. All of our earrings can be placed on french wire, post, lever back, or Clip-on all of our clasps are sterling silver, silver plated or nickle free hypo-allergenic

I also can make custom request pieces and usually can do custom sizing of any of my stock pieces.

Feel free to contact me for any of your special requests, no order is too large or small for our consideration.

This is a family business with my husband and two sons (plus are extended family of a turtle, Tommy, 4 dogs; Pepper, Abbie, Ginger & Roxie plus our guinea pigs.) helping to make my creations and we all like to hear how much joy our pieces bring to our customers. We do not smoke but we do try and keep hair and business apart but...sometimes we slip. Sorry. We also foster and rescue our beloved breed of Aussie herding dogs. A portion of our sales goes to taking care of a foster or to a rescue group for a dog in need. Or transporting dogs from kill shelters to rescue groups to find safe loving homes. We do work with other breeds but herding dogs are our speciality.

My son and I have started to include our pottery into our inventory, all of our pieces have been made by us or our friends/mentors that have been in the pottery business for decades and have a local gallery and studio.

I am nowdone with driving nearly 200 miles daily to get my degree in ceramics at Angelo State with a Master potter http://www.angelo.edu/dept/artmusic/Esteban_Apodaca.html and learn the art of wax casting to my jewelry experience. We are also ordering and buying beads factory direct from China and selling locally, online, and at shows (maybe near you!) We will post show dates. Thank you for your interest, we will continue to move forward and continue our Texas style.*** As of May 2011 I have my Spaecialized BFA in Ceramics and have a full functioning studio and hope to spend more time in it and more time here posting my work.
