About

This is what I make

I've been taking photos and making jewelry since I was a teenager. When I was growing up, every craft I learned became a new 'business.' I would teach one or two friends, we'd buy some materials, and voilà! A new creative endeavor was born. Once we had a box full of handmade offerings, we'd venture out into the neighborhood, door to door, shop to shop.

I'm all grown up, my creative skills have improved and my new neighborhood is Etsy, but I still find the most peace and fulfillment when I am making art and creating with my hands.

All jewelry is made by me in studio. I use mostly silver, but every once in a while I work with gold and other metals. I use gemstones from around the world.

All photographs are taken and edited by me. I use professional printing services to turn my images into high quality prints.

For the bookmarks I use tassels and charms, lots of crystals, cloisonné and glass beads, and natural materials like mother of pearl, wood, and seeds from the Amazon.

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOMIZATION

A lot of my pieces, especially the amulets and bookmarks, have been used as party, wedding, and anniversary favors.

Please contact me so we can work out a design that both compliments your event and can be replicated in large quantities.

Name and date cards may be added to some designs when using them as favors (extra charges apply). I work as a graphic designer and will be happy to design a custom card to match the theme of your event.

Because my pieces are frequently one-of-a-kind, it is not always possible to replicate a piece. However, if you like something that has already been sold, contact me and I will be happy to work with you on making a variation or custom piece.

Please note there may be an upcharge for some customizations.

Custom & large quantity orders require a 50% deposit for the order to begin. The remainder is due when the order is complete.
