I love making jewelry! Selecting the beads, designing bold necklaces, earrings and bracelets is a quiet labor of love.

Jewelry is very personal. It is the last thing that most women reach for after dressing each day. Most reach for something that "matches" their outfit. I love to wear jewelry that is significant to me, either because it was a gift from a loved one or because it feels good or because it has a spiritual meaning.

My beaded necklaces, earrings and bracelets are a celebration of spirituality and of all religions. I love the study of the cross cultural perspective of each one. My fascination of the complexities and their significance to history, politics, contemporary culture and the art and music inspired by them inspires my jewelry design.

If you desire a piece of jewelry celebrating a faith not represented here, send me a message and I can make something just for you!

Life is Just a Bowl of Rocks

My shop really started at a gift shop connected to a cave in Missouri. Billed as, "The Only Cave You Can Ride Through", Fantastic Caverns is just north of Springfield. We were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday and as one of her gifts I told her she could choose a few of the shiny rocks in the wooden bins that the gift shop was selling. I think they were 5 for $10. She was mesmerized by the rocks and took great care in choosing the ones she liked best. As she looked, I began looking too. The rocks were smooth, shiny, colorful and delightful to hold and I too found myself wanting some of those rocks. That was it. That moment in time when you discover something you love that you can't stop thinking about.
Next I discovered that you could buy polished semi precious gemstone chips in bulk on eBay. I purchased five pounds of them and poured them in a bowl and plunged my hands in them. They were cool, smooth and gorgeous to look at. I put the bowl of stones on the corner of my desk at work and soon everyone was asking about them, touching them, plunging their hands in the cool rocks as a stress reliever.
I started to study the names of the individual stones. Dalmatian Jasper. Amethyst. Onyx. Lapis. Quartz. On the internet one link lead to another and I stumbled upon beads. The beads became a way I could do something useful with my newly found love of semi precious gems. I could hold them and compare their properties and admire their colors and variations of color.
In my early 30s I had my first panic attack. At first I thought I was dying, or having a stroke or a heart attack. I have spent years and thousands of dollars in an attempt to understand anxiety disorder. For a long time I could not go into a big box store, drive on the freeway or be in crowds of people. Fortunately I found a great therapist that taught me cognitive behavioral therapy. Its a method of helping yourself by challenging your own thoughts. It works! But the anxious times still come - out of no where. I've found that making jewelry is the very best therapy. I can sit quietly and string them on fine wire and become totally absorbed in the process. I look forward to the end of the day when dinner is over and my daughter's homework is done. I can retreat to my studio. Stringing beads in quiet meditation is good for your soul.
At first I made my jewelry only for myself. If you love beads, you soon find that they become an expensive addiction and I was making pieces faster than I could wear them myself. So, to support my habit, squash my anxiety and share my love of my rocks I opened up my shop.

Thanks for taking time to read about my shop today!

    I'm an introvert with an anxiety disorder! That makes me extremely well adapted for working from home - which is exactly what I plan to do. Someday. Never ask me, "What's the worst thing that can happen?" I can tell you.
