About

Welcome to my Rosebud Collection store on ETSY. Specializing primarily, in art glass and beaded necklaces, my pieces are unique. I also work in the textile arts with fiber, fabric and embellishments. I love the creative process, all my pieces are one of a kind.

Living here in the American Southwest has greatly influenced my outlook and my artwork. The sky, the mountains, the deserts, and the Native American cultures have had great impact on my color selections and ultimate creations.

I have operated retail stores and galleries which attracted many collectors with my original work and unique design concepts. I am also a needlepoint canvas designer with a dedicated following. Wanting to devote myself completely to my art, I am now a full-time studio artist. My bead, thread, and textile collections go back 25 years,…

Welcome to my Rosebud Collection store on ETSY. Specializing primarily, in art glass and beaded necklaces, my pieces are unique. I also work in the textile arts with fiber, fabric and embellishments. I love the creative process, all my pieces are one of a kind.

Living here in the American Southwest has greatly influenced my outlook and my artwork. The sky, the mountains, the deserts, and the Native American cultures have had great impact on my color selections and ultimate creations.

I have operated retail stores and galleries which attracted many collectors with my original work and unique design concepts. I am also a needlepoint canvas designer with a dedicated following. Wanting to devote myself completely to my art, I am now a full-time studio artist. My bead, thread, and textile collections go back 25 years, giving me an enormous selection with which to work. My travels keep my collection growing. The hunt for the unique, I consider part of my creative process. Estate sales are also an important source as I so often find the truly unusual. I seek what is unique and beautiful as they are the essence of my work. My beads come from all over the world.

In my item descriptions I attempt to explain what has been included, however, with many of my elements being vintage and coming from so many global sources, I can often only guess at what something is. Literally some of these pieces, stones and beads, as far as what they are, can become "lost in translation." It is my intention to be as accurate as I possibly can in describing what comprises my necklaces. My necklaces I consider to be art jewelry. Many people enjoy wearing and collecting my pieces.

The necklaces can be worn as a unique piece, but also layer beautifully. Watch for varying lengths. Wearing more than one at a time, I feel, only adds to the fun as many of my collectors do. The necklaces are strung on 26-pound test wire for excellent strength. Double or triple strands are strung with each strand being 20-pound test wire. They drape beautifully. The closures, depending on piece, are sterling silver, 14K gold, brass, or base metal. In each necklace the closure will be discussed. I always buy what I consider to be quality findings.

I stand behind my work. If a necklace should break (which I've never had happen) I will re-string it for you at no additional charge, simply e-mail us at rosebud17 [!at] infomagic.net or call at 1-800-847-6020.

Enjoy!
