Handmade Jewelry for All

Weston, Connecticut | On Etsy since 2013

Announcement    Welcome to Tommy Paige Designs.
It started as an afternoon beading with my Mom and sister, then as a way to accessorize my all black wardrobe for work, and now it's a shop on Etsy!

I'm sharing all the pieces that I've made for myself over the years. Rejuvenate your favorite black, grey, white top that you love and wear to death. If you have a great necklace on, no one will notice you've worn that top, again!

Be eclectic and funky one day, classic and elegant another, or fun and sparkly every day. My designs come from a mood, or feeling, or a salvage find. If it looks interesting.....wear it.

I make what I love and I love what I make.....hope you do too.

Who IS TommyPaige anyway???? My inspiration and my joy, my 2 children's middle names.

The Accidental Designer

"You should bead, it's really fun and relaxing," says my Mom..........."Ma, I have a full time job, a husband, 2 kids, tons of laundry, and no craft room, it's never going to happen." says me, 8 years ago.

Over time I bought some beads, some wire, a few pair of pliers, kept it under my bed, hidden. Took it out a few times a year.

When we'd visit my parents in Savannah we'd always "Do Beads." After dinner, the boys would go out and smoke cigars and we'd break out the trays of beads. It's what I'd imagine a quilting bee would've been like. So relaxing, yet exciting when you put together something beautiful. We'd talk, or not talk, and the hours would fly by. Wonderful time spent with my Mom and sister.

Eventually I built up my arsenal of beads and findings and doodads and tools, and I started making jewelry for me.
I no longer had to say, I wish I had something that went with this sweater....I made it! What gratification and pride, a sense of accomplishment.
Co workers commented and complimented, and I made them necklaces, which gave me satisfaction and support. I thought this passion I had could be a huge success or a very expensive hobby.
Last year with a push from my sister in law, I launched Tommy Paige Designs. The name is derived from the middle names of my 2 children, which I thought was fitting since they like to help me, and even though I was working I would always have them in my thoughts.

I make jewelry in a tactile fashion...I have to touch it, it has to feel heavy or substantial, or has to be sparkling and bright. I love to find objects and make them wearable, and when I'm in the hunt for some new discovery, I feel most creative, and most fulfilled.

So I'm trying to find my bliss and work out the balance amongst all the priorities pulling me in different directions, as most Moms do. It's just another avenue to explore.
