A Passion for Beads and Creating

It happened quite by accident. It was 2001, getting close to Christmas, and I wanted to make my mom some of those cool wine stem charms that were so popular back then. She had admired some in a store, so I took a close look, and I wondered if I could actually make her some myself.

I started looking online for the materials, namely beads, and an obsession was born! I found wonderful cloisonne jointed fish charms and pretty glass beads that were really fun to work with. She loved them! Needless to say, I didn't stop with the wine charms I made. I began teaching myself many of the popular beading techniques and making my own jewelry. I started selling my jewelry designs in 2002 on a popular auction site and then found Etsy. Back then, I really appreciated Etsy's focus on handmade goods.

I am a married mom of two amazing girls. My work is inspired by nature, art, vintage and antique aesthetics, and sometimes simply the way certain colors and shapes work together. I like to make things you won't find in a department store. I love jewelry that conjures a mood, that looks like it has a story to tell about the person who wears it. Please feel free to convo me, and thank you so much for your interest in my work!

Additional policies and FAQs
Minor changes to designs incur no extra fees. This would include replacing the type of earwire on earrings or adding or subtracting up to 2 inches to a necklace or bracelet. However, if it is a substantial change, for example, if I have to restring a necklace, I do charge a little extra for the added work and supplies that may be required.
