About

Janet Morrison Minto, aka Janet Planet, started her beading business in Los Angeles, CA in 2003 after a successful 20 year career writing songs.

Always at deepest heart a writer, her descriptive musings on each necklace, detailing her inspiration for each one and a detailed list of the various elements used have become almost as popular among devotees of her work as the necklaces themselves.

Her inspirations are as wide-ranging as the necklaces. Nature, both wild and in the garden, flowers always, art and paintings, her children’s early years and of course the lore and legend of various healing semiprecious stones. Sometimes a fanciful story or scene will present itself to her and she will attempt to capture it in jewels. She has created pieces after waking from dreams, from cherished memories, reminiscences and moments of destiny.

“Each necklace I make will never be duplicated, it will be owned by you alone. Take a ramble through my Etsy store and you’ll see: no two are alike. I make each one lovingly by hand, with gratitude. Thank you for taking the time to have a peek at my sparkly treasures!”
