Can't Sit Still

I am crafty, creative sort that would rather sit at my studio table and make something with my hands than watch TV, surf the internet or just about anything else one could "waste" time doing. Not that I never do those things, but given a choice, I almost always choose the creative road.

I love the ability to make what I want! Not being limited by what is offered by a store is so freeing. My Husband has marveled at my determination to run into the studio and quickly make a pair of earrings or necklace to go with what I am wearing before we go out for the evening.. why settle???

I have been making things for as long as I can remember. My Mother and Grandmother, both had a multitude of creative skills.

I enjoy the creative process. I love exploring new ideas. I literally never sit still!

    I use a combination of Vintage, Vintage reproduction and Vintage style pieces to create my jewelry. I am always on the look out for new finds which can be transformed into something unique, different and a little unexpected.

Thank you for coming to my shop! I have been making jewelry for several years now and really enjoy doing it. You will find a lot of my own Artisan Made Lampwork beads featured in my work. along with my latest obsession vintage jewels, which I use with the lampwork and alone, pearls, vintage Lucite, Czech glass,gemstones.. the list could go one! I use Sterling Silver, antiqued brass, silver plated brass, Tierra Cast Findings, which are Fine Silver Plating over Lead-Free Pewter. This is a very high quality product that allows me to make a slightly more affordable piece with the same look and feel of sterling silver. (Fine Silver tarnishes much more slowly than Sterling silver.) and I occasionally play with copper. Feel free to ask if you would like to see something made in a different metal. I may or may not be able to accommodate this request but will always try to make it happen. It's just a matter of what is a available to me. I am always trying out new things! You never know what you might find here!

You do not have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal, they will accept payment with any credit/debit card. Having an account just makes things more convenient for you. PayPal is very safe and secure. I make many purchases myself online, including international ones, using PayPal and have never had a problem. Please accept my apologizes if this is inconvenient for you. I have chosen to use only PayPal due to the safety and security they offer both the buyer and the seller.

I will accept E-checks through PayPal if that is your desired method of payment. Please be aware that it can take up to 10 days for the check to clear. I cannot ship your purchase until I have received a message from PayPal letting me know the check has cleared.

All of my jewelry comes packaged in my own handmade pillow boxes, wrapped with pretty organdy ribbon.

I advise purchasing insurance along with your shipping. While I make every effort to package items very well, most pieces are somewhat fragile. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for carrier damage or lost items.

USPS Insurance prices:
Up to $50.00***$1.70


I only offer international shipping to Canada. This is due to the vast array of differing postal regulations concerning the import of certain metals, jewels and jewelry to different countries. It is too complicated to sort out the particulars. Some seller will ignore these and ship anyway. I just can't do that...

The rate on the listings is for first class mail. Insurance and tracking is NOT available with this shipping method.

Please be advised that once your package leave my hands I can no longer be responsible for it without insurance or tracking.

If you are interested in priority mail international, which has insurance available and IS trackable, I can get you a quote on those rates. Just send me a convo, PRIOR to check out.
