Arrived quickly and good quality necklace.
I've had the opportunity for world travel and have lived many places in the United States with my husband Dan and son Caleb. In 2005, I moved with my family to South Korea for two years. It was a great experience.
From South Korea it's just two hours by air to Beijing, China. In Beijing I was introduced to all the wonderfully affordable and lustrous pearls available there. As an artist, my eyes were opened to the limitless jewelry design possibilities of pearls and natural gemstones.
Once I returned to South Korea, I learned the art of stringing pearls in the classic style. I was also able to purchase gemstone beads and quality findings at the historic Dongdaemun Market in Seoul. A family trip to the "lost temples in the jungle" at Siem Reap, Cambodia (Angkor) offered further inspiration. At first I just made designs for myself, but when my pieces started selling right off my neck, a business was born!
My design philosophy is that the Creator is the ultimate artist. I am inspired by the luster of pearls and endlessly fascinated by natural gemstones and metals. I feel there is no need for fussy, trendy designs that tend to obscure what is naturally so magnificent. My designs focus on the materials and what looks flattering on the wonderful women who wear them. My practical nature insures that my pieces actually work and will last through years of wear.
Owner, Designer, Maker, Artist
As a world traveling, military spouse, having my own online business allows me to keep working wherever I am. As a studio trained artist, I love my jewelry design work and hope you do too!
Now that he is in High School, my son Caleb is in training to be my Shipping Department.
Please do not order one color or length or type of gemstone, etc and then ask for a different one in the notes to seller at checkout. If an item is in stock, it will be listed in my shop already and may be a different price. If you would like a custom item, please contact me by Etsy conversation.
Jewelry should be measured for and fitted just like clothing. You can use a piece of string to find the perfect length for necklaces, anklets and bracelets and then measure that to find length prior to ordering.
Wholesale orders will not receive complimentary jewelry pouches and boxes or gift wrap, but may ask for hang cards for earring displays.

International orders must go through Customs and can take weeks to arrive (generally 15-45 days). I do not guarantee delivery dates. I reserve the right to cancel very large International shipments unless buyer upgrades to Priority Shipping so that tracking and insurance can be added. I have no way of knowing how long your country will take to process the package through customs and deliver it. Certain countries such as Italy and Poland prohibit importation of jewelry. I cannot ship to those countries.

I work with natural materials which may have inherent flaws. I do my best to describe and photograph items accurately.
I use classic stringing techniques. Stringing materials will stretch over time. Therefore, I knot everything just a little "tight." After a few uses items will relax and hang beautifully.
My designs are hand-crafted and packaged in my smoke and pet free studio.
