Beautiful and just the right size! I do wish it came with silver beads rather than gold, but that's just a personal preference. So happy I was able to find this, it was exactly what I was looking for. Speedy delivery, and amazing quality. Highly recommended.

Ralston Originals Handmade Jewelry and Ornaments

I have been creating jewely for myself, for family and friends all my life. I enjoy the process of creating new styles and like to keep my creative juices flowing by trying new ideas. I am thankful to be blessed with the gift of creativity, it is a joy to be in my studio making jewelry and letting my creative ideas come to life. I enjoy the hunt to find the beads, chain, and other items I use for my creations. I sometimes buy jewelry, take it apart, and re-make it into my own creations. Many items are one of a kind, and make great gifts for those who have everything. I never want to stop creating new things, and so I am always adding a new style or creation. I am not one to stay in the box. I want to be able to do whatever my heart leads me to do.

I made a necklace for a friend, and gave it to her at a lunch with other friends. Three other women wanted the same necklace. The requests just kept coming in from friends to make them more jewelry. I opened my Etsy Shop with the encouragement of family and friends soon after. It has been a great way for me to be creative, and sell what I enjoy making. Through Etsy, I have been asked to have three of my Necklaces published in Beading Times Magazine!! They wanted to use them because they said, "We would love to use this picture of your jewelry as an example of a good design". These are the links to my Necklaces in their Magazine; beadingtimes.com/design0913.htm , beadingtimes.com/design0714.htm , beadingtimes.com/design0915.htm .

My Jewelry is also for sale at Barbara's Tea House in Rancho Cucomonga, California. My friends and I enjoy going to Tea at Barbara's Tea House once a month. Her theme is Victorian, and I create many Victorian style jewelry items for her. It is from her ideas that I have started making many of the Victorian style jewelry items I now sell on Etsy. It is such a joy to have friends to encourage and inspire me!

I hope you enjoy looking through my shop, and see something you like. Please come look again as I am always adding new items.

I encourage you to start a "Wish List" in your "Favorites" section. I started mine when family and friends asked what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas. It is a great place for them to be able to shop for you, and get you something you really want. I hope you find something in my shop to add to your list too.

Let me know if you have any questions, or you would like something made a little differently, or in a different color, from what you see. I can sometimes custom make just what you are looking for.
These are some of the great reviews from my Ralston Originals Shop on Etsy;

"The necklace and pendant were even more beautiful than the picture. The seller has talent in the styling of the piece. Nicely boxed with thank you note. Delivered in a very timely manner. I'll be back for more"

"WOW! Absolutely gorgeous bracelet! Looked great in the photos but even more lovely in person! Has a beautiful glow to it and is very comfortable to wear! Nicely packaged as well! Thanks so much! :) "

"This ornament is genius, skillfully wrought. A real keeper for generations!"

"WOW! Thanks Sherry. Necklace is beautiful & will make a great gift. I ordered this on Monday & received it on Wednesday, couldn't ask for a better seller. Thanks again."

"Loved this. Very Good Quality. Looks like it came from a high end department store. Picture does not do it justice. Shipped very quickly."

"This is a beautiful necklace and perfect in so many ways. Sherry's handiwork is wonderful. Shipping was very quick and you can tell Sherry takes care with her packaging so nothing gets damaged in freight. This seller is a great example of why Etsy works for people like me."

"Item was in great condition, and in pretty packaging too. All ready to wrap and put under the Christmas tree for my sister-in-law. Highly recommend this seller. I ordered the item on a late Monday evening, and it was delivered to my house by Friday afternoon."

"Hi, the necklaces are lovely, as the seller. The necklaces were carefully packed and decorated with ribbon. The delivery was fast (one week, I live in France) even if it's Christmas. Thanks a lot."

"Great Seller! Responded very quickly to my questions!"

"Gorgeous! Exactly as pictured and fast shipping. 5 stars!"

"Nice wrapping and fast shipping. It was bought for myself, but it made me feel like I got a gift from someone. Very nice. Thanks!"

"Fast shipment and the person who got the bracelet immediately fell in love with it! I will be back for more!!! Thanks so much!"

"Arrived in ****2 days with a hand written note from Seller. Beautifully hand crafted!!!! A++++"

Etsy is fun and easy to use. Once you create an account you can search out new items, and keep track of your favorites. Start a "Wish List" in your "Favorites" for the things you wish to buy later. Then let your family and friends know you have an Etsy account, and a "Wish List" in your "Favorites" Section. Let them know how easy it is to shop for a gift for you by using your "Wish List", and be able to purchase one of the items from your list for you. They will be happy to know you will receive a gift you really want.
