When a teenager, I experimented with the pieces she no longer used, taking jewelry apart to create something new and better. I called it "design and refine", and I have to admit that there were times I didn't confine the creative process to only the things she'd cast off. It didn't take long for her to come looking for Jill every time she couldn't find her newer jewelry. But she soon got over her annoyance, as she'd be the hit of the bridge club or PTA with my one-of-a-kind creations! I kept hoping to see an increase in my allowance, but no such luck ッ

Now it's such a pleasure to choose exactly the materials I want to use, without being confined to recycling my mom's beads. But I wouldn't change those initial seeds of inspiration for anything!

The custom jewelry you see here is designed with one thing in mind ... use only the finest components available to create a long-lasting piece of jewelry you'll love to wear!

Made one at a time, every bead is carefully chosen, and every piece is crafted to feel and look unique & fresh.

Designed using sterling and fine silver, freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, Austrian crystals, handmade lampwork, dichroic glass and vintage glass.

Please let me know if you would like matching pieces to accompany something you see here.
