Here at Simply Wired we specialize in fine handcrafted jewelry from the items we have collected from the shores of the Great Lakes of MI. We also offer unique designs of bead and wire jewelry from Bohemian style to more modern and contemporary style.

The difference between what I offer in my shop in comparison to other shops is that 95% of the stones I use I have fashioned myself. I do all my own lapidary work rather then just purchasing cabochons to wire wrap. It takes a great amount of time and patience to work my own stones especially with the Agates, since their hardness is rated so high and much harder to shape and polish. You can be guaranteed that a great amount of time and care has gone into each stone and the wire wrap work. So please keep that in mind when comparing prices of other wire wrap work you may see on Etsy.

I also offer making "made to order" items if you have a special stone that you would like shaped, polished and wire wrapped. Just send me a message to my store and let me know what you have in mind. : ) We have something for every budget and age, so feel free to browse our store and find something for yourself or for that special loved one in your life!

All of our jewelry is also sent out wrapped in either tissue paper or in a organza bag and placed in a very pretty decorative pillow box all ready for gift giving to make it special!.....

About

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral. Antoine De Saint-Exupery

It has been quite a journey from a child picking out "pretties" from our gravel driveway, sitting on the porch with a huge hammer and giving the stones a hard whack to see what secret sparkles lay on the inside to combing the gravel roads and stoney beaches collecting all different types of stones that have the possibility to be turned into something even more beautiful. God has been so gracious to me with giving me not only a wonderful husband, but someone who also has a love of hunting for Petoskeys and other "pretties." And now we have been given the opportunity to transform all what we find into something inspiring. And there is nothing more satisfying then when you can see the sparkle in someone elses eyes who sees that "something special" in what you have made from something that started out as a simple stone. Our motto for this shop is well spoken by Vincent Lombardi who stated that
" The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor."
And here at Simply Wired we believe in Excellence in all that we do. What we have to offer besides a product that we have taken great time and detail to is caring about our customers and their satisfaction in what they have purchased. Our hope is that anyone who purchases from us will walk away feeling that they have something very special and experienced a rewarding transaction not just between a seller and a buyer, but between friends! : )
