About

I started making jewelry over 38 years ago....I think because I never could find anything I liked in stores....nothing colorful enough, long enough, etc. I first started selling at work, got my things into an airline catalog for a time, and did a lot of craft fairs. When my husband and I moved to California, over 27 years ago now, I took a few lapidary classes, worked at a jewelry school, had a space in a kiosk, partnered for awhile in a jewelers showroom, did more craft shows, and for the last three years have had this Etsy site. I don't do a lot of shows anymore due to my health and age, but I do what I can....I keep going with God's help! Making jewelry gives my spirits a real boost, and makes me happy. I have a few other members of my team that also have some handmade jewelry and other handmade goods, including some beautiful wall art. All of the things made by me are one-of-a-kind items. Please feel free to contact me…

Please feel free to contact me whenever you like....I love communication, and promise to support all of my fellow "Etsyians" always!

Members of my team include: Myself, my former business partner, Malene Waters, Matt Philleo, who creates the beautiful wall art, Yessica Talian, who does the lovely embroidered jewelry and handmade chokers, and Jacque Mooney, who makes the dichroic glass nail files.

Sincerely, Donna
