Add Some Sparkle To Your Life!
It was late 2010 and my husband was working on his Masters degree in Education. I was so proud of him, but it made me take a hard look at my own professional life. I had been doing the same administrative work for eight years, and though I was lucky to have the job, I realized that my soul was crying out for something more creative and artistic.
I stepped into a craft shop one day, and it was as if a giant magnet pulled me toward the bead section. I must have spent over an hour lost in that rainbow of possibilities, soaking in all those colors and textures. They were just begging to be turned into so many beautiful and amazing things!
DawnsBoutique was born in that flash of inspiration.
I did some (not so) quick self-education on jewelry making techniques, photography, graphics and web design. I researched local venues. I started my own website and spent a year doing tables at craft shows. As those long neglected creative energies began flowing, I also picked up the fantasy romance novel I had finished writing several years prior and took a serious look at how to get it published.
I now have four published fantasy romance novels, am working on a new series, and continue to make beautiful, sparkly things for DawnsBoutique. All of my energies are focused on manifesting a financial life that is supported solely by my creative pursuits, and I'm a much happier person for it!
Please enjoy browsing my shop, and don't forget to look for my Novels of the Faerie Realm by Dawn Addonizio the next time you're in the mood for a romantic fantasy adventure. Your endorsement is the best advertisement...spread the word...tell your friends!

Frequently asked questions
Most bracelets and necklaces can be adjusted for length. The best way to determine what size you want is to measure a piece of your existing jewelry with a ruler or measuring tape.
Custom and personalized orders
Some items may be customized for color or theme. It doesn't hurt to ask and I will accommodate you if I can. Custom orders will incur an additional fee depending on the time and materials needed to create them. Once a custom order is agreed upon and begun, it cannot be cancelled or returned.
Most metals will lose their shine with time. Gold-plated and silver-plated items are less expensive for a reason - the plating wears off with use, exposing duller base metal beneath. Skin oil, sweat and exposure to the elements hasten this process. Gold-filled and silver-filled items tend to last about five times as long as plated items, and solid silver and gold should last forever with the proper care. Argentium silver contains more silver than sterling silver and is about eight times less likely to tarnish. I include tarnish-resistant storage bags with all of my jewelry, and encourage customers to use them. We've all left our jewelry sitting out and seen how quickly it can lose its shine!
Gift wrapping and packaging
All jewelry, and smaller items like wine glass charms, will arrive in a gift bag or gift box. If you would like a larger item gift wrapped, and/or if you would like for me to include a gift card with a message, please let me know.
