Not completely pleased with the quality of workmanship on the product I received even though it was a redo of a previous custom order (which was perfect). The shop owner offered a refund which I declined because I needed the product and not the money. Will make do with what I received.

This clover charm is wonderful, and I received it in a flash (and had to wait to leave feedback). The seller is great, and I'll be back soon.

How I Became a Jewelry Designer and Seamstress

When I left my job as as an art museum curator, I decided to take classes at our local art center. Since I love wearing jewelry, I thought a metalsmithing class would be a nice start.

I was surprised to discover I had a real talent for creating jewelry. Talent is one thing, execution is another. So began my classes in jewelry design.

After the metalsmithing course, I took courses in precious metal clay (fine silver) and loved them. I decided to keep learning and went on to soldering, designing, enameling, texturing and stone setting classes.

After completing those classes and spending years making jewelry my daughter in law gifted me with a sewing machine that turned me into a seamstress. More classes at the art center and more private lessons and I am hooked on sewing.

I very much enjoy the challenge of creating in totally different mediums and constantly learning all the different pieces that can be made out of metal and thread. Hope you enjoy my shop.

I have also been a collector for many years and have another shop on Etsy where I sell vintage items
