… but what IS Jewelry in a Jar?

Jewelry in a Jar is a woman owned, small business providing jewelry which is all handcrafted in my home in Cary NC — using my hands, my imagination, and the support of my husband & my kids I create one of kind earrings/bracelets/necklaces.

When our first child was born, I decided to be stay at home parent. Seven years later, the time came for our youngest child to go off to public school, & I decided to go back to work – outside of the home.

Over a four year period, I worked in childcare & in the public school system. As a family, we came to the realization that we all were happier when The Mom was home – this included being able to volunteer in all three children’s classrooms & in the schools, gave my husband & I more time together …. we’re still working on the mountains of laundry but that will work itself out — someday.

I wanted to make things. I love unique jewelry … and creating things with my own two hands gives me a sense of peace and accomplishment.

Over several months – I learned how to work with wire & beads, & before I knew it I had a plethora of earrings. A friend of mine was heading up a craft fair for the preschool which she is the director of & invited me to sell my wares there.

The jewelry that I handcraft is jewelry that I would wear myself – & it gives me a sense of joy when I see someone wearing my pieces. I hope that they feel the same joy wearing them.

Each handcrafted piece, whether they are earrings, bracelets or necklaces … are shipped in a jar. Many of the jars are recycled, ornate in someway, and can be used in a number of ways: to store or display your earrings/jewelry, regift the jar, use for a candle, etc …

Thank you for joining me on this incredible adventure! Check out my website, & sign up for the semi-monthly newsletter … & we’re also on Instagram & Facebook …. share with your friends & family!
