About

A little about me.

Hello.
I have been making and selling jewelry for about 15 years now. It all started when I walked into a bead store and fell in love with all of the color and texture that I saw before me. I was hooked.

Besides making jewelry, I love to garden and hunt for vintage goodies. I treasure pieces from the past and the history that they hold.

Color is what influences me most in my life. Whether it is a bead store, the famers market, a yarn shop or even at the paint samples at a hardware store, I love to be surrounded by color.

My love of color spills into my jewelry. Different styles of jewelry appeal to me. That is reflected in the various types of jewelry, from elegant and traditional to bohemian that I make.

I am drawn to all types of beads. Stone beads have all of the natural beauty and colors that the earth has created. Czech beads are so lovely with all of their variety of colors. Swarovski crystal beads can add just a right amount of "bling". I also love finding really great vintage necklaces. I take them apart and use those vintage beads in more of a modern design.

I hope you have a wonderful day.
Ellen

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage beads:

I am always searching out great vintage beads. The type you don't see made anymore. Some I can buy NOS, (New Old Stock): Vintage beads that have never been circulated. I buy those whenever possible.

Some, have come from a wonderful vintage necklace, earrings or bracelet, that was worn and loved. When I bring those home, they are taken off of their stringing material, given a warm bubble bath, rinsed and air dried. All beads that have been worn and loved will show some type of wear. (I only purchase pieces that have minimal wear). I happen to like this worn and loved look, though I know that it's not for everyone. But I will not use anything that I would not wear and love myself. If you have any questions about anything made with vintage beads, I will be happy to answer them. Just convo me. I am convo friendly. Most of the time I can answer the same day. Occasionally, I will be delayed answering, until the next day.
