Announcement    Thanks for stopping by my corner of Etsy!!

I handcraft small batches and one of a kind jewelry pieces. I do the vast majority of the metal work in my studio using traditional techniques and using semi precious gemstones and pearls. I design and create each item individually, which means it may be similar to another piece though no two pieces is exactly the same.

I love semi precious gem stones, sterling silver (both shiny and oxidized) and the warmth of gold fill wire and findings. Beads that sparkle, briolettes, rondelles, faceted, smooth, onion and pear shape, classic styles, contemporary flair... I love it all. We hope you find something you love, too.

Browse the site as long as you like. Convo me with questions or comments. I love to talk about jewelry, my process, inspiration and well, really anything. Thanks for stopping by my corner here on Etsy! Thanks for shopping hand crafted! Thanks for supporting local artisans!

You can also find my jewelry at Sacred Money Studio & Prosperity Pie Cafe in Portland OR. You may as well enjoy a slice of pie while browsing my jewelry at this locally owned small business. Check out their website, the link is below.

Famous Last words...I Can Do That

I got inspired after purchasing a beautiful necklace on trip to Europe several years ago. It was crochet with beads. I thought "I can make that". I worked up a few and none were nearly as gorgeous as the one I purchased. And that experience started my experimentation with beads, silk thread and metal. I enjoy the process and the finished product. The successes (pieces I liked) inspire me and the a "failures" (pieces either I did not like or didn't lay well or any number of problems which made the piece "not right") remind me that creativity is fluid and it inspires me to learn and try again. I love to learn new techniques and work endlessly to master techniques which I use frequently. I have taken classes with some of the finest metal smith teachers in Portland Oregon at Multnomah Arts Center (MAC) and Oregon College of Arts and Craft (OCAC). I also learn through reading books, watching videos and lots of trial & error.

Feeling the roughness on my well worked fingers after working in the studio is very satisfying. I love working with large tools (who doesn’t want to use a drill press) and hand tools. I have a strong desire to both experiment with and master traditional metalsmith techniques using sterling silver, brass and copper.

The fun of taking an idea, a piece of metal or a stone and figuring out how to create something which is beautiful and functional continues to draws me back to the studio time and time again. I make one of a kind pieces and small batches of earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

I work in my studio in Portland Oregon, with my cat Flanders at my side, who is usually looking for my lap.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome to CJ Baubles, jewelry designed by friends Colleen and Jane!

We met almost 10 years ago in a knitting class in Portland, OR. We both love color, texture, and working with our hands. Although knitting filled that love for a long time, we feel we truly found our passion when we started making jewelry! We make all of our jewelry individually, but we do it together as much as possible. That way each of our designs has to pass muster with both of us before it makes it into our shop. And for us it's just a lot more fun!

One of the best parts of making jewelry for us is working with natural materials. We use semi-precious stones and real sterling silver and gold-filled metals. We prefer materials that have an organic look, so our stones will often have occlusions or markings that make them unique.

Thanks for stopping by! We are very convo friendly, so don't hesitate to ask questions!
