About

Kathleen - Jewelry designer, wife, mom, daughter, teacher and crafty lady

I have created jewelry for 12 years and to this day I still have a passion and love for creating new pieces of art! Each piece of jewelry I sell is unique and handmade by me personally. I am a busy mom of two wonderful children. My family has been my greatest inspiration to continue to sell my jewelry creations while learning and growing with them.

I began my jewelry making journey 12 years ago when I was tired of wearing the same old jewelry everyone else was wearing. I wanted something that was unique and that represented my personality and style. I have created things my whole life and so I got excited about learning how to make jewelry. I made my first charm bracelet and I was hooked for life!

Once I began wearing my creations, people started coming up to me and asking about them. Soon colleagues, friends and family were asking me to make them custom orders for events and gifts. What had started out as a love for creating at my kitchen table has now turned into my own art room. I feel so blessed to be able to share my love of jewelry with others.

Each piece I create represents moments through the journey of life. I am inspired by people's stories, special moments and personalities. Sometimes, I just create pieces because I love the natural beauty of the bead or metal combinations. I truly believe that the way you see and act on each moment and opportunity in life is the kind of energy you receive in return. I love nothing more than to see people feel positive inspiration through the beauty of a beaded piece or from a quote or reflection that I have hand stamped into one of my metal works.

I create each piece with great thought and care. I hope you enjoy your jewelry or gift as much as I did making it for you!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry pieces are sent to you in an elegant organza bag, ready for gift giving. Your order is shipped in a bubble wrapped envelope for added protection during shipping.

Care instructions

Each jewelry piece is handmade, as with any jewelry take care when taking them on and off. Please remember to take off jewelry when using water or cleaning products. Silver and silver plated jewelry are best kept in a storage container/jewelry box to help keep from tarnishing. Aluminum items will generally not tarnish, if cared for properly. However, if aluminum gets wet it may tarnish.

I DO NOT recommend items for children due to small parts. Buyer resumes all responsibility. My items are not intended for babies and you children. All children should be supervised while wearing/handling my products. Choking hazard present. Please use caution.

Custom and personalised orders

When you place a custom beaded order, please make sure yo choose the colour of bead you want and the quantity.

When you place a custom metal jewelry order, please be sure to send me a message during your order indicating, what name(s), saying or statement you would like depending on the item you have chosen. Be sure to double check spelling before placing the order, as I copy as it is written down. In the unlikely event that I have made a mistake, please contact me and I will make arrangements to correct this situation as promptly as possible!

Hand stamped metal

My metal items are individually hand stamped using metal stamps and a hammer. Due to this technique, each piece will be unique in it's markings (e.g. light or heavy stamped letters/designs, not perfectly lined up). This is NOT a defect, but what makes each piece a unique creation.

Shipping policies

I am continually trying to keep shipping costs low for my customers. Therefore, I send all packages as standard mail, which does NOT include insurance.

If you would prefer to pay extra for insurance and a tracking number to be added to your purschase, please message me.

I will do my best to meet processing and shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on shipping method chosen.

Attention: Before Christmas the delivery times become later as for busy holiday season. I cannot gaurantee that your purschase will be delivered before Christmas, if placed after December 12.

Colour and texture of item

I take great pride in my artwork. I try my very best to describe each piece and use photos to illustrate them in as an authentic way as possible.

Please note that due to individual computer monitor variances, colours, shine and texture may be different than seen in the photo. Please refer to the jewelry description for more details.
