Announcement   Spring is having trouble making her way here. Rain, snow, a day close to 60 degrees and the next-- it's snowing again! Mother Nature plays with springtime. But it will get here!

Welcome to my HeartSong. I love to create jewelry and jeweled accessories for all with the "joie de vivre" to enjoy fun and eclectic creations. My passion is to gather the elements and watch in amazement as they arrange themselves into whimsical, elegant, fanciful pieces of art. Each piece makes it's own statement- it speaks the language of beauty created from the lampwork beads I use from the many artisans who give their talent and time to make.

I have created these items for you and for those to whom you wish to give the very best. Each one has their own story. Take one home with you.

I absolutely love these earrings! I paid more than I usually do for a pair, and they are so worth the price--beautiful, large beads and quality earwires.

About

Creating makes me happy. Sharing it with you makes me happier.

I started much like everyone else; one bead at a time, one technique at a time. Twelve years has gone by so fast. I've loved every minute. It always starts as a hobby. Then one day you look at a piece of jewelry and think "I CAN do that!". So I had a dear friend, Yvonne, teach me the basics and I started to fly.

I work with handcrafted lampwork and Bali, sterling, fine or vermeil silver beads and findings because I wish to honor all the hard work the lampworkers do before I even start my designs. Without them, I would not be the creative person I am today.

My work, no matter what the style, is rather organic in feel. It is almost always asymmetrical as I find nothing in nature is symmetrical. Yet there is a poetry to each design, a why to each layout. The components arrange themselves; I merely attach the findings.

I love what I do. When I had to retire years ago due to lupus I was really wondering what I could do to fill the time. I never imagined how much joy creating has given me. I was once asked why I never wear my own work. My reply- I didn't make it for myself. I made it for the world.

I have been asked why every bracelet has a bead or two hanging from the clasp. Have you ever worn a watch or bracelet and found that you continually had to turn it around to keep the face up? The beads on the clasp act as a counter-balance to the weight of the bracelet, helping it show it's best side.

I do not accept returns except in the case of damage to a piece due to creation or if it has been misrepresented. Please forward me a photo so that I can see if it can be repaired.

Take a moment. Enjoy your day. Breathe.

Thank you, thank you.

    I'm a retired preschool teacher who's love of creating jewelry and jeweled accessories came from my inability to find exactly what I wanted. Once I mastered the basics, I was off to conquer the world. Happily married, mum to one, loving life!
