Had these custom made and the shop owner did a lot of work coming up with what I wanted. She's great. Very nice quality too.

I arrived at this design totally by accident. As I was playing around with the shape I started pulling the bottom loops and was intrigued by the new shape of the pendant.

About my passion

I approach my art with my heart not my head. I start with a feeling rather than a plan or a drawing and most often the end piece is the result of a creative and intuitive process not a detail planned out drawing. I pick up my tools and start working; gradually the piece starts to take shape. Sometimes the end result is exactly what I had imagined and sometimes it is all together very different from my original idea.

I love new sensations; I think that is why my jewelry has a very distinct style. You can see my love of luxury in my choice of materials and designs. At the same time I love comfort, I will not make a piece of jewelry that is uncomfortable. My pieces tend to be practical first, trendy second.

In addition to making jewelry, I am a stained glass and a water color artist and above all a gardener. My inspirations come from everything and everywhere around me. I am always seeking multiple venues to express my creative side.

I like working with silver and copper. I also like to work with pearls and semi precious stones.

There are three things that I love about making jewelry.

** I don't like to make the same thing twice. The journey for me is the creative process. To be able to create something new every time. With so many materials and methods available for making jewelry, I feel I can create a unique item for the rest of my life.

** I enjoy showing off my creations. It is easy to show off your jewelry, it does not require a gallery; all you have to do is wear it. Every time, someone asks me 'Where did you buy that', I get a great joy from saying 'I made it myself'.

** Last but not least favorite, is being able to express myself in many ways. I can be serious, funky, colorful, contemporary, classic or just playful.

I hope you enjoy my jewelry as much as I enjoyed making them.

I am a non-smoker and live in a non-smoking home in Troy Michigan.

Additional policies and FAQs
### What is Argentium Silver? ###
Argentium Sterling Silver is a new blend of Sterling silver invented in 1996.
Typically, sterling is blended with copper, which makes a nice strong and attractive blend, but it tends to tarnish easily.

Argentium has the same 92.5% silver, but has a little bit of a metal called Germanium blended with the copper.

For chemical reasons, this makes Argentium sterling far more tarnish resistant than standard sterling silver.

You'll be amazed at how long it stays bright. In fact, Argentium® increases its tarnish resistance over time.

Argentium Silver does not contain nickel. It requires nothing more than a light buffing with a soft cloth to keep its beautiful shine.

If desired, wash gently in warm soapy water and dry with a soft cloth.

### The requirements to label gold filled ###
The requirements to label a product as being gold filled:
Gold filled is a hollow tube of usually 14K gold (sometimes 10K is used) that is filled with another metal. The exterior of the gold filled jewelry is solid karate gold and everything you can see or touch is a solid layer of karate gold.

This tube of karate gold is approximately 100 times thicker than gold plate. It is made by bonding with heat and pressure - with normal wear and tear the karate gold will never tarnish, chip or wear off. By law this layer of karate gold has to be at least 1/20 of the total weight of the metal portion of the piece of jewelry.

In the USA this process is referred to as ‘gold filled’. In Europe the same process will be called ‘rolled gold’. Both terms are synonymous with each other. Many jewelry purchasers outside the jewelry trade mistakenly think 'gold filled' is the same as 'gold-plate'. 'Gold filled is a much higher quality product.

As less gold is being used gold-filled or rolled gold jewelry is a cost effective alternative to karate gold jewelry.

### What is Bali Sterling silver bead? ###
Bali silver is sterling silver made on the island of Bali, in Indonesia in the Indian Ocean. Bali beads are made by hand by Balinese skilled silversmiths.
### How to measure for a bracelet? ###
To measure for proper bracelet fit, hold your hand and fingers outstretched, but cupped as if putting on the bracelet. Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1 " (1/2" is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear.

Now measure around the widest part of your hand. Make sure the above measurement is a bit smaller than this area of your hand to ensure the bracelet won't slide off.

If this bracelet is a gift for an adult or young lady, and you don't know wrist size, 7 is considered petite, 7.25 is small, 7.5 is medium, 7.75 is large, and 8.0 is XLarge. Average appears to be 7.25 to 7.5 inches.
### What is Sterling Silver Stardust Bead? ###
Stardust metal finishing effect is created by etching a surface with a laser. The laser treatment roughs up the surface and causes it to catch light in a different way than smooth polished metal and it gives the metal a frosted look.
### What is Reconstituted Turquoise ###
turquoise "chalk" that is lower grade and has been ground into powder, saturated with epoxy resin, dyed, and compressed into blocks or cakes to be cut into shapes for jewelry making.
Prices should be most inexpensive.
### What is Furnace glass? ###
Italian glass blowing techniques such as latticinio and zanfirico are adapted here to make beads. Furnace glass uses large decorated canes built up out of smaller canes, encased in clear glass and then extruded to form the beads with linear and twisting stripe patterns. No air is blown into the glass. These beads require a large scale glass furnace and annealing kiln for manufacture. (Wikipedia, 2004).
You can read more about the ‘Glass Bead making’ at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_beadmaking#Furnace_glass
### About Hand Knotting ###
Hand knotting saves the pearls in case the strand breaks and also prevents the pearls from rubbing against each other.
The reasons for knotting pearls are simple; safety and preservation. When any bead or pearl are strung without knotting, they are not really secure. A strand can break for any number of reasons, and when that happens, it is difficult if not impossible to track down all of the scattered jewels! When a cord is knotted, the only thing lost will be one pearl or a clasp, at most. The rest will stay intact. Also, knotted pearls will not rub against each other, which can result in marring and chipping. This would devalue good pearls, not to mention making them look less desirable.
### About Viking Knit Hand Woven Chain ###

Viking Knit is an ancient method of assembling a chain without the use of solder. It is structurally a looping technique that preceded traditional knitting by centuries and was used by the Vikings not only for jewelry, but also for woven clothing. The technique consists of back stitching wire in loops producing a very flexible and silky chain. This is a time consuming process, it takes 4 hours to create a 18 inch chain.
### How to Care for your Pearls ###

Your pearls will stay clean longer if, you
- put them on after you have applied makeup and perfume.
- do not take them off after applying hand or body lotion.
- Store them in the velvet or silk pouch that they come in.
Clean your pearls with a soft lint-free cloth and if needed some mild soap and water. Let them air dry before storing them.
Do not put them in an ultrasonic cleaner. To clean the silver parts of the necklace, use a rouge cloth(also called polishing cloth or silver cloth). If you are going to use a dip make sure that it specifically states that it is 'safe for pearls'. Silver oxidizes, that is it's natural state, use that to add to the beauty of this piece.
