Went for a walk along the river on our farm and brought home some neat stones.

About

Simple Elements Design - Handcrafted jewelry made with sterling silver, gemstones and freshwater pearls.

Simple Elements Design started five years ago. Previously I had worked as a designer for another jewelry company. For years people were telling me to go out on my own but it took my husband being laid off from his job for me to jump off of the cliff and start my own business. I am so glad I did. My shop gives me the opportunity to be creative and being creative is like breathing to me. I like the fact that I do it all: I come up with the design; make it; photograph it and handle the shipping when it is sold. Most of my work is one of a kind. I think a person's jewelry should be as distinctive as they are. Why wear things that look like what everyone else is wearing?

There are so many things I love about what I do. I like the fact that I take inspiration from nature and my gardens and then create a piece of art people can wear. I cherish the relationships I have developed with customers all over the world. My husband jokes I run an international business. Thanks to Etsy, I do.

I have had a need to be creative my whole life. I come from a long line of creative people - painters, photographers and textile artists. Their work fills my home with inspiration. Before discovering jewelry making, I worked as a calligrapher. I still enjoy putting pen to paper and hope to incorporate that into my jewelry.

I prefer to work with natural stones. Mother Nature creates some pretty wonderful materials to work with. I have a soft spot for pearls and turquoise so I use those items quite a bit. I view stones like a new box of crayons...oh the possibilities.

My taste is eclectic. One day I can make a piece with lots of parts and the next day, it is simple and modern. I love the variety.

Thanks for visiting my little world. I hope to see you again.

    Making jewelry is one of my favorite ways to be creative. I take my inspiration from the gardens that surround my home. Gardening and cooking are other passions of mine. I am a wife and mother and nuts for baseball.
