This is what I love to do, this is what consumes me day and night--creating gem encrusted jewelry in organic shapes and themes.

My background in biology and a lifetime desire to design and create lead to the creation of the pieces you see at Fuss Jewelry. What began as a few stones and lengths of wire has become an obsession.

My jewelry is at once free form and organic with an underlying order and structure. Enjoy the jewelry as much as I enjoy making them and create a fuss!

All of my pieces are handcrafted with my full attention and care--I want you to love…

Cleaning and Polishing:

To care for your piece, the sterling silver or gold filled wire can be buffed gently with a polishing cloth. Do not buff stones with anything abrasive as the surface could be damaged but rather use clean cotton (like an old tshirt). Do not immerse in jewelry cleaners unsafe for pearls and soft stones. A reputable jeweler can clean your piece (never clean pearls and soft stones like turquoise in an ultrasonic cleaner).

Storing your jewelry inside a plastic bag will help slow tarnishing.

Untangling a necklace:

Many fuss pieces are elaborately constructed and have stones hanging from wire dangles. Please take care when untangling. Never try to untangle or twist a necklace while it is fastened and/or around your neck. Take the piece off, unclasp and hold by one end of clasp and let dangle freely. Then use the other hand to untangle the piece by gently rotating.
