Such a stunning necklace! Made exactly as I requested, even in the custom length. The three pearls are beautiful. I receive so many compliments on this necklace. Such a great buy!

Updates

New additions to my "SALE" section! This teal glass beaded chain, of vintage tube beads & recycled glass beads, is marked down 30%. Very limited edition!
August will be here soon & I love Peridot, which is the birthstone. So I was working on some drafts of a new shop avatar, featuring peridot & peridot green. What do you think of it?
An original creation & one of a kind! My "American Landscape" enamel inspired a multistrand bib necklace of silver & gemstones. The drop is 3" The wearable art necklace length adjusts from 20" to 29" and conveniently fastens with a hand forged side hook.

About

A Long and Winding Road

History: After many years of wandering the U.S. and the world, I landed back where I began: on the family farm here in northern Illinois. It’s so beautiful here and nature has long inspired and informed my artwork in many media: sculpture, papermaking, photography, and for the past few years-wearable art. WillOaks is the name of my studio, and also of our farm & seasonal family campground.

Wearable art has been a natural extension for me because I love to wear jewelry. Making it to suit my vision and ideas has been a fascinating journey. Most of my pieces are original because that's how I think....and I am happy to share them with anyone who would like to be different from "the crowd." Original pieces for original women.

I have a BFA in printmaking from Washington University, St. Louis and an MFA in sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve been very fortunate to win 2 national and 2 state National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, a Fulbright fellowship, and many awards for my sculpture and installation work featuring handmade paper and mixed media. The Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery acquired one of my large installations in 2006 where it will be installed periodically.

I’ve created artist’s books for many years and these are in several collections nationally and internationally. I’ve been a professor of fine art sporadically, as the opportunity presents itself. These days, I'm mostly focused on my studio work, which is a lovely place to lose myself as often as possible. I love to try new things but strive to bring focus, excellent craftsmanship, and my personal vision and interpretation to anything I do create with the hope it will inspire, provoke, or bring pleasure to my fellow human beings…I thank you personally for your interest in my work!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your interest and if you choose to do some shopping with me, I'll do as much as I can to make your experience a great one! I strive to use excellent materials and techniques and am happy to explain and describe what I do as much as possible--if something isn't clear, please contact me directly.

Unless noted otherwise, silver metal used (wire, findings, beads) is solid sterling or fine silver--Silver plated findings have been included where needed and where cost is an issue. Gold is 14-20 gold filled with a core of jeweler's brass--by weight, gold filled is 20% gold and is much thicker than plated gold.

I'm so happy for the wonderful customer support I've received here as I enter my seventh year on Etsy. Thank you! I'm always convo-friendly to answer your questions and to hear your comments.

Insider Info--Folks who have purchased from me are added to my Newsletter mailing list and special offers are sent periodically with great deals and advance news of new collections and works!!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept credit cards directly through Etsy or through PayPal; regular credit cards can be used through PayPal WITHOUT setting up an account! I reserve the right to cancel your order if payment arrangements are not made within 24 hours and will not ship your order until payment has cleared. Illinois shipping addresses will have local sales tax automatically added to their invoices.
Shipping
I ship USPS first class parcel, with delivery confirmation to your address as entered during check-out. USPS tracking codes are sent to you at the time your order is shipped so that you may track the shipment. These are useful in the event an order is waylaid, etc. Please contact me if there is any delivery problem and we'll work with the post office to solve the problem.

If your Etsy address and your PayPal address are different, I will default to your Etsy address. I'm happy to ship gifts from my studio for you. Simply enter the recipient's address and add a "note to seller" with your note for the gift card.

Some of my pieces are ready to ship and many are made to order, which can include custom adjustments to sizes or other features, if you contact me to make these arrangements. I will give an estimate on shipping time and will try to keep you updated if there are changes in time needed to create your order. I'll contact you with tracking details and shipping information when your order is on the way.

International orders can be arranged by contacting me before purchase. Etsy currently has decided to include info that incorrectly states that VAT, taxes or other import fees are already included in my purchase prices. This is not possible nor is it correct as these fees are collected from the shopper when the parcel is delivered. While I can ship internationally via US First Class parcel with customs tickets attached and marked as "merchandise" with the value declared, any duties or taxes are handled by the country of destination & are collected from the shopper. Please drop me a note if you have any questions or concerns about shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be thrilled with my pieces and will exchange or refund items returned within 7 days of receipt provided they are in their original, unworn condition. Contact me to confirm return procedure. Returns may require a 3.5% restocking fee and the refund does not include shipping charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
Thanks again for visiting and for your interest in my work!! Contact me directly for information on wholesale or consignment orders and information.
