Both earrings were requested to match/complement necklaces. I took photos for the artist, gave her a written description of what I had in mind, and she worked with me until I was happy -- which didn't take long! I was SO impressed by Laurel's willingness to please ME and create what I envisioned, rather than what she might necessarily recommend. Laurel is a wonderful artist who was also wonderful to work with! I highly recommend her!

About

My passion for designing jewelry is now more than a 'gilty' pleasure; it is a creative vision to share

Despite years of work in a demanding profession, I have always managed to weave in a bit of after hours crafting. Like many women trying to 'do it all', reserving this precious time is often a challenge...Commute home, plan dinner, food shop, put away groceries, prepare meal, eat and clean up, check homework, catch up on mail, bills, messages, laundry; all in a span of 3-4 hours and then...finally, with the crew at rest, it's BEADING TIME...
Hence the shop name BeadafterDarkJewelry, because that is often the only moment when the chaos is at a lull and I can let my imagination loose to dream and create...with the undercabinet LED burning over a counter crammed with ziplock bags full of lovely findings, crystals, pearls, beads and gems...
I am addicted to design: a moth drawn to flame, intently sorting out the color combos and textures needed to something new and exciting, ready to wear next morning when the routine starts all over again...
Now that we are empty nesters and my work schedule is lighter, what became a five year plan has finally materialized (this from someone who is a two finger typer and is still at a loss to understand how most appliances work, let alone the computer) and I have managed to reach a point where the internet and iPhone are not complete mysteries. With this ETSY venue to share my creative vision, the effort is that much more rewarding.
