These are so pretty!! Shipped on time, arrived very quickly. The only negative is that the wood is still quite coarse and so the edges of the bracelets are kind of scratchy. There also doesn't seem to be a sealant around the paint so there's a part where's it's already rubbed away a bit. They're really so, so, pretty though. A wonderful mix of colors and prints that will go w/ pretty much whatever. Thanks very much!

About

Jill Makes

After I earned my degree, I spent 8 years working under the job title of graphic designer, but the job was much more exciting than that. I worked for a retail/wholesale jewelry company. I got to design rainboots, flipflops, displays, jewelry and other cool projects. During this time I discovered my love for creating jewelry.

As much as I enjoyed my job, I wanted to branch out on my own. I always thought that I would regret it if I didnt try.

I started focusing on jewelry that I would love to wear. I love the idea of personalized jewelry. Most people enjoy having something that is uniquely theirs. I also have a love for bright and bold colors and that shows in most of my pieces.

Often I begin with a pencil sketch of an idea that has been running through my head. That is how my Helvetica necklaces came about. I illustrate a lot of my jewelry pieces by hand, design it on the computer and I then hand paint them myself. I also hand mold all of my clay components. Most of my jewelry pieces have a handpainted element.

I'm also a wife and mom to two sweet boys - Bennett & Qunicy. I Iove making things by hand, and I can't pass up a good vintage sports jacket.
