Seller's Story

I found at a young age that I enjoyed making jewelry. When I was just a little girl, I made friendship bracelets and beaded necklaces. In my teen years, I learned how to weave hemp by itself or with beads to make beautiful woven jewelry. During my college years, I made bead earrings and bracelets just for fun and friends as gifts. Then in my late twenties I was introduced to wire which changed my craft. I saw a co-worker at my firm wearing a bird's nest necklace which was so unique. She told me that it represents family, and her sister had purchased it on Etsy. I was immediately interested in how to use wire to craft beautiful designs. I research in jewelry making books and online on how to use wire and also how to make a bird's nest. The first nest I made was for my sister. She has three children so I made a sterling silver nest with 3 eggs. I was hooked. The ability to take a spool of wire and transform it into a nest was amazing to me. My sister loved the nest and meaning behind it. That was the beginning of my true love for crafting pieces with sentimental meaning. In 2015, I decided to expand my craft and took online courses as well as an in-class course on metalsmithing. I learned how to cut, solder, join, hammer, polish, set stones, and create amazing jewelry pieces from start to finish.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry is placed in a small ziploc jewelry bag and placed inside a gift box. All purchases of charms or supplies are placed in a ziploc jewelry back and then placed in an organza bag. Charms and supplies are not mailed in a gift box. For example, if you purchase a Dove Charm it will come in an organza bag, not a gift box.

All orders are mail in a bubble padded envelope.

Custom and personalized orders

I personally make each piece by hand. I pride myself in my work. Each piece is unique and special. Slight variations are expected which adds to the charm of your custom piece which makes them one of a kind.

Care instructions

All sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time. Over time, any sterling silver jewelry exposed to air will naturally tarnish. Polishing cloths are the best and work wonders. I use Sunshine Polishing Clothes and Brilliant Cloths on my jewelry. For nests, the cloth will shine the outer layer of the nest wire and not harm the pearls or stones. I do not recommend submersing the entire pendant or bracelet in a liquid silver cleaner if it has pearls or stones as it will harm ruin them. I can shine your jewelry for the cost of $5.00 (service fee) plus $2.25 (shipping fee). Please convo me with any other questions.
