On Etsy since 2013

Turning passion into production...

I started taking jewelry-making classes at my local bead shop in 2011. The hobby quickly escalated from a casual interest into a full-fledged passion. I got lots of compliments on my pieces, and suggestions that I should sell my items. After much encouragement from friends and family, I decided to open up shop!

In considering how to name/theme my Etsy shop, I asked around to friends and family, "What do all my items have in common?" The resounding answer... sparkle! And thus began Ready, Set, Sparkle! My Etsy shop opened in the Spring of 2013, and I've also been selling at local craft shows since the Fall of 2013.

I run the shop from start to finish... from picking out the most beautiful materials I can find, to designing the pieces, creating them, photographing them, listing them on Etsy, and shipping them to your door.

My full-time job involves development and marketing for a nonprofit in Arlington that assists individuals coming home after incarceration. Making jewelry gives me a chance to do something a bit more delicate and feminine and a creative outlet to produce items that I love, and that I desire to wear. My hope is that you love them as much as I do.

I also have the privilege of teaching jewelry making classes at the homeless services center in Arlington, Virginia - bringing a little sparkle and joy into the lives of those in need.

Thank you for visiting my shop! I hope you find something you like.

All jewelry pieces are created by me using high quality materials. My pieces are made with a variety of techniques and materials, including sterling silver or silver-plated, wire, silk thread, semi-precious gemstones, pearls, and more.

The custom-made initial art is created using a variety of materials, including rhinestones, floral embellishments, and more. Each piece is made especially for you and will therefore be completely unique and one-of-a-kind. The initial art can be framed, hung from ribbon, or left as-is to prop against a wall or other item. Tell me your desired letter, color, and theme, and let's see what we can create together!

Additional policies and FAQs
The silver in my jewelry pieces is NOT sterling silver UNLESS it specifically states that it is sterling silver in the listing. Most of the materials used are silver-plated, and I try to accurately describe/state this in every product listing. This means that eventually, the silver will fade and the piece may turn color. It is not made to last forever. To keep your jewelry looking fabulous longer, keep it out of water, do not wear while sweating/working out, etc.

Sterling silver does tarnish, especially if stored for months. Tarnish first appears as a golden hue and can eventually turn to black. This is a normal process that is caused by oxidization and moisture. The tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth, silver cleaner or warm soapy water.
