I've gotten nothing but compliments and this thing is perfection!!! Thank you so much! *update* The magnet clasp isn't perfect. The little magnet inside popped out of one of the cylinders and is a bitch to make stay in there :/ It's been about a month and just my badge hangs from it.

Creating start to finish

My Etsy shop is a place for me to show my designs and I absolutely love my clients comments and their custom order requirements. It is so much fun to work together to create your custom orders.

I enjoy all aspects of making each piece but I have to say my favorite is the beginning. I spread every piece from Lampwork Beads, Crystals, Seed Beads and all the findings across my large dinning room table.
The first item I usually choose is a Lampwork Bead then take the large box of Crystals that I have collected and go outside in the bright sun to see what matches beautifully to the Lampwork. Once that decision is complete, this could take up to 2 cups of coffee, the next step is the Czech glass seed beads and they have to tie in perfectly.

I am a 1 person show from hunting down the best quality Lampwork Glass Beads, Czech Crystals, Czech glass seed beads and other findings, design, creating, photography and customer service.

Each piece I have in my shop is unique and beautiful to me, during the process if it just doesn't look right it won't be completed.

Welcome to my shop!
All the items are hand made and designed individually by the shop owner...me :-)
On all my jewelry I only use 49 strand beading wire for maximum strength, flexibility and durability. You will not find any plastic or acrylic pieces in my work only top grade Czech Crystal, Freshwater Pearls, Glass Lampwork Beads and Czech Glass Beads.

FYI...my metals are mostly silver plated cooper. If you own a piece and it tarnishes please use soft silver polisher to get it back to shiny new.
