Announcement    Hello, and welcome to my shop. I specialize in making jewelry with Swarovski crystals, sterling silver, gold filled findings, and other beautiful beads. I discovered the bead world about 17 years ago and especially love the Swarovski crystals. Well, let's face it, I love all beads but Swarovski is my favorite!

I use lampwork beads from different artists I've discovered over the years. There are a lot of lampwork artists out there and I do have my favorites! Designs using lampwork beads or bead sets are usually one of a kind.

The type of metal is always stated in the item description. If you see a piece you would like in a different crystal or metal color, just convo me with your request. I can accommodate most custom orders. All custom orders are not eligible for discounts.

Most of my designs are one of a kind and I try not to repeat myself!

All orders come with a delicate organza gift pouch.

Handcrafted Swarovski Crystal and Lampwork Glass Beaded Jewelry in Sterling Silver and Base Metals

I make unique and one of a kind jewelry pieces. I started my shop because I was making so much jewelry and needed another venue to sell it. I found Etsy and decided to give it a try.

My design process is very unscientific. I choose some beads from my stash, and I have a lot of beads, place them in front of me at my work space, and just go from there. I usually end up changing the original design, adding more beads, or doing what ever it takes to make the finished product look perfect. Perfect to me anyway! I do get design ideas away from the work space and have tried to write them down and work from that but I prefer just staring at the beads for a while and experimenting until I get it right.

I just love beads, all shapes and sizes. Swarovki crystal beads are my favorite, you can't beat the colors and all the sparkle! I have a favorite lampwork artist, Lee Woodburn, and have literally hundreds of her beads. I do have 2 necklaces, and quite a few pairs of earrings made from her beads in my etsy shop. I have quite a collection of natural stones as well, need to get more jewelry made from those on my shop site.

Thank you for looking at my shop and I hope something catches your eye.
