These are so beautiful and go beyond what my imagination had in mind - I did not know about these unique beads until I was in your shop - flowers are subtle and golden ear wires help enhance those even more - I know I will visit your shop again and again for your quality designed jewelry!! Thank you for creating these elegant earrings!!

About

Catju Design Beginnings

I got my start making jewelry when my sister Karen gave me a jewelry making kit for my birthday many years ago. I made a necklace and bracelet, and was hooked.

At that time there was no Internet, so it was very difficult to get supplies. Everything had to be ordered through a catalog, if you could find on selling what you wanted. It was a long complicated process, you first had to order and pay for the catalog, and then place your order and wait and wait several weeks for you order to arrive. And when it showed up, it might not even be what you wanted to purchase. And don't even think about returning anything, that was another nightmare. Luckily today the access to beads and beading supplies is abundant, you can pretty much find them everywhere.

I started selling on Etsy as I needed an outlet for all the jewelry that I was making. It is fun to make a pair of earrings, a necklace or bracelet and then photograph it and list it. It makes the jewelry come alive!!

It is a great way to meet people from all over the world and also see all the great items available from other sellers.

    Catju Designs Artisan Jewelry is handmade one piece at a time, with whatever beads and supplies catch my fancy. I travel to several bead shows a year in search of unusual and eclectic items to make jewelry to last a lifetime.
