I love the beautiful green color of this jade. It feels cool to the touch and is a perfect necklace for this time of year. Well made and shipped quickly too.

About

Life's Better with Sparkle.

In 2011, my online purchase of a handmade necklace prompted me to find out how I could create my own jewelry. I began sourcing supplies, spending thousands on stones and beads before I even knew the technical side of jewelry-making. Sounds risky, but I had confidence in myself. I've always had an artist's soul, a good eye for style and the drive to succeed at whatever I endeavour to do, so I knew I could turn this dream into reality. I took a jewelry-making class at a neighborhood jewelry shop and started using all the beautiful stones I'd been accumulating. I'd conceptualized my designs in my mind and every night after my husband and kids were in bed, I'd turn my ideas into reality until the wee hours of the morning. The excitement of the creative process won out over fatigue.

Three months after taking that jewelry-making class, I had almost 300 beautiful pieces of jewelry and opened my Etsy shop in April, 2012. I am a born and raised prairie girl, living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Ice represents our cold prairie winters and is also a term used for jewelry, so I called my shop PrairieIce.

In 2015, we moved into a larger home with an office and storage space for all of my supplies, but I still work at the dining room table late at night, usually with one of our cats on the table keeping me company. I've sold my jewelry to 11 countries and I can't say how exciting it is to think about a woman on the other end of the planet wearing one of my creations. In 2014, my jewelry was been featured in ACF (Amazing Canadian Fashion) Magazine which was a proud moment.

Quality and functionality are just as important to me as the beauty of my pieces. I want them to be unique, beautiful, easy to wear, and to last for years to come, so I choose beautiful stones and use professional quality supplies. I also want my customers to be completely happy with their entire Prairie Ice experience, so customer service is a top priority. I maintain ongoing communication with several of my loyal customers whom I've never met in person but I consider to be my friends.

Statement jewelry is my best seller, but I also create more delicate pieces and my jewelry for men is very popular. I an effort to diversify, I've also added wine charms to my shop. New ideas and techniques excite me, so I take the occasional class and I'm always adding new styles to my repertoire, but I stay pretty true to the original Prairie Ice style, which is eye-catching jewelry with brilliant colour and my signature sparkle.

    I am a therapist, wife, mother and lover of colour and all things sparkly. My artist's soul and love for jewelry led me to start creating it in 2012. I do it all myself, from sourcing my supplies, designing, creating, photographing, and shipping.

Shop policies

Welcome to my new Etsy shop! All of my items are designed and created by me personally, with the same care and attention to quality and detail as if they were for my own personal collection.

I like to use a lot of natural stones and materials, and I also often incorporate a touch of sparkle, even if it is in an inconspicuous spot so only you know its there. Each and every item I create is one I would be proud to wear myself.

Additional policies and FAQs
In pieces where natural stones have been used, there may be slight variations from one bead to the next in terms of colour, shape, size, etc. Inclusions are a natural occurrence in natural stones. This is what distinguishes them from synthetic or machine-made, and what gives each piece its unique beauty. Because no two stones are alike, all of my pieces are one-of-a-kind.

The piece in the photo is the exact item offered for purchase. No surprises :)

Custom requests are welcome. Just convo me. Note: 50% non-refundable deposit is required before custom work begins.
