About

The nicest thing anyone has ever said about me is that I have character.

Almost fortunately, because of circumstances beyond my control I had the time to really think. I had to change the way I spent my time, so I began to study alternative medicine and crystal healing. I've always loved rocks, so it was a natural choice to think about making jewelry.

I started researching and buying stones, beads and components nearly two years before I made my first piece of jewelry. Because I'm not an expert, I worked at establishing relationships with vendors; figuring out who was reliable, consistent, informative, honest and dedicated. Those are the same qualities I wanted to base my own business on.

I use real stones; natural preferably, but sometimes enhanced simply because they are beautiful. I also use wooden beads, lampwork glass, Czech glass and the best quality metal components I can find. I will occasionally use metal coated plastic beads to help with weight distribution since natural stones can be HEAVY. I will always note that in my descriptions; I promise to be as accurate as I can possibly be, I want you to know as much about a piece of jewelry as I do.

I've had questions regarding authenticity because of my pricing. I price according to my costs; I'm able to do that because I shop carefully, but most importantly because I know that for most of us, times are tough. I also know that being able to buy something for ourselves or as a gift can be so uplifting.

    I am a GRITS, Girl Raised In The South, no longer a girl really...I am married to a man who undoubtedly has many stars in his crown. We have two dogs, one cat, three nephews and a gaggle of nieces that fill our lives and hearts with love.

    I'm very proud of my niece and happy to contribute to her shop. I've made her beaded earrings and necklaces for...let's just say a long time! It's great fun and a real treat to do it once again; I never could teach her to, though!

I have found my passion! I want to make beautiful things for people to wear with my own two hands; from natural stones, gemstones, wood, metal...anything that catches my eye! I an intrigued with the beauty and capabilities of these incredible gifts of nature and I want to share what I've discovered. There have been more than a few times I wanted something I couldn't have and what I could afford probably wouldn't have lasted very long, so quality and reasonable price are very important to me.
