About a year ago my husband, mother, sister and I moved into a huge old Victorian home in Maine. The place had seen better days! We've cleaned, painted what seemed like miles of old trim and windows, restored floors and staircases, fireplaces and old doors. We've decorated every square inch and we love it here. We can take care of Mom ( and she can take care of us). So, we tried to think.....what next? We're not exactly people to sit around and do nothing.

Our previous Etsy store sold vintage items and antiques ( Dad was an antiques dealer). But sourcing antiques requires a lot of travel. We didn't want to leave Mom alone that often. We decided on jewelry supplies because jewelry making has always been a passion for both of us. We brainstormed about what type of supplies would be most useful to fellow jewelry makers and decided that jewelry charms ( we love to add the charms to our hand-stamped pieces), beads ( all those beautiful choices), and other common findings was the best way to go. As with a lot of businesses, we've started out with a certain amount of inventory, trying to find unique pieces that we hope you will enjoy. We plan to constantly add to our inventory, providing charms, beads, chains, and other findings that we hope will help to get your creative juices flowing.

We also operate an Etsy jewelry store at www.hopeishipjewelry.etsy.com
We sell jewelry, scarves, leggings, etc. as well as some lovely home décor items! Visit us soon!

  • Annie Rowell

    Owner, Customer Service, Marketer

    I worked in healthcare administration for years. A good career but it didn't exactly fulfill my creative needs. I've always loved the whole process of designing and producing unique handmade jewelry. Now I get to do it fulltime! What could be better?

  • Jeanne Smith

    Owner, Customer Service, Product Sourcer

    I've spent years creating different kinds of art. We've restored this old house for a year and it's time to move on, I can't paint one more piece of trim! Designing and making handmade jewelry has always been my creative outlet.

  • Mother

    Head Cheese, Cheerleader, Inspiration

    I'm 88 years old but still run a tight ship. I keep these girls on the go and on task. You may find me helping with shipping and sourcing when the mood strikes!

  • Miss Gracie, Miss Lucy, and Pickles

    Lazy Household Cats

    Our job is to eat and curl up to sleep at the girl's feet as they work. They occasionally trip over one of us, but they always stop to give us some loving (if they don't, we crawl over their work tables).

  • Jeff

    Saint, Annie's Husband

    He really didn't want me to post this, but I want to give him credit for his patience and willingness to back us no matter what. Couldn't do it without you sweetheart!
