About

It all began...

I simply adore the way stones and gems catch the light and play with it for your eyes to see!

Growing up on a farm in rural Northern Indiana, I spent many a summer afternoon with my horses, searching the pastures, fields, and even the creek bed for more shimmery stones to add to my ever growing, already enormous collection!
After having been encouraged by my parents to "find something to do with them," I discovered I could make my own jewelry, with scrap wire and simple pliers stolen from my fathers garage! Another hobby to grow into a collection, I expanded my ability, learning first from books and magazines, and later from looking at what others had created, and challenging myself to do similar techniques. I decided to give many away as gifts, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Eventually, I was lead to Etsy, and named my shop after my first "partner," my mare, Brandi, who passed away one fateful day in November, 2005. Her full name had been Branda Menel Vir and in Elvish it means "Noble Jewel of Heaven," and Branda Vir mean "Noble Jewel," How appropriate, I thought, to name my shop after her, as she was with me at the beginning, and was very precious to me.

Here we are, many happy years later, and I still love to collect gemstones and minerals, and use them in my work! I have upgraded to quality tools and materials, but everything is still made using my hands and pliers! I use a variety of materials, but I am trying to focus more on gems and fine crystal. My organizational skills may be lacking, but I try to keep my work space in a tastefully organic array! However, I must add that some of my best creations came from a jumbled pile of things laying together, that sparked an inspired idea!

I am always learning new things, continuing to expand my skills and knowledge. I love creating wire jewelry, using the beautiful stones I find, and I hope to do this for the rest of my life.

Hello, and welcome! Thank you for visiting my shop! I hope you will cherish your treasures forever!
I use high quality materials and simple tools to create one of a kind artwork!
My preferred metal of choice is Silver, but I also work with copper, steel, brass, and gold!
The Gemstones used are Natural, genuine, or Lab grown, or Cubic Zirconia, or Imitation, all of which will be labeled properly.
*If a gemstone is treated, and I am aware of it, I will put that in the description.*

CUSTOM ORDERS are my favorite kind! I love to challenge myself and get creative! If you see something you like, but would love it in a different color, length, or size, please ask. Or if you would like something completely different and unique, and all your own, contact me and I shall create it for you!
I always make custom orders a priority in my shop, but please understand that my day job is very demanding of my time, and sometimes I may not be able to make your order as quickly as we would both like. However, I am usually able to get things made within a few weeks!
*Note that the pricing for custom orders may be different from piece to piece, and will be determined as it is created.
