About

I am from Southern California, where there is no snow. I still cannot use a snow shovel properly according to some people. I settled in the East after getting out of the Regular US Army. After this I became an executive assistant and went to school at night. Along this line, I became a nurse. First, trauma then ICU and finally a visiting nurse. At the best of times nursing can be stressful so I found relief in learning to make jewelry.

Formal classes were taken in printmaking, watercolor, drawing and jewelry. Jewelry classes won. I had a passion for jewelry. I became certified as a PMC Level 2 instructor, worked in Dichroic glass and enamel. All of which I have applied to jewelry. Stones, have color, texture and a life of their own. I take that and make it into a wearable piece of art. Instead of being on a wall, framed, it is found around a beautiful neck, wrist or ear. My jewelry is made…

My jewelry is made with loving care, expertise, and very original designs.

My two cats might even say I spend too much time at my table and not enough time with them..Not true. But I have to admit that I have (ugh) started to excerise as parts have spread from sitting too long in one place. I have started to wear reading glasses to see small crystals/seed beads and use two lights.

But this is well worth the magnificent results as you can see in my shop.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to look. We all have less time than we need. So it is appreciated that you spent some time at my shop.

All my designs are artistic, handcrafted, and individual; only one is made. When it is sold on the site I do not make another. All materials are very high quality, real, sparkly, natural stones, precious or semi-precious, Swarovski crystals/pearls, real perals of all types, colors, and PMC is .999% silver. The clasps are sterling silver, copper, brass as needed to set the item off.

Thank you, please look, shop, and come again.
