Announcement    I ship USPS First Class Mail--it is usually just as fast as Priority Mail for domestic deliveries, and I almost always get it out the same day you order if it is before 2:00 PST, or early the next day if later. Average delivery time for domestic orders is about 3 business days for the Western half of the country, 3-4 to the East. There are also shipping upgrades available at checkout if you for sure need it faster than that.
International customers--Please read shipping policies before you order, and allow 4-8 weeks for delivery in case it gets held up in customs.
I don't share your information with anyone, and only use it to get your package to you!

2018 Challenge: Don't Buy Any More Beads!

After going through my stash recently, I came to the conclusion that I might have too many beads! Is that possible? In an effort to find out, I have decided to resolve not to buy any more beads in 2018. Instead, each week I will be randomly selecting one of the (count 'em) 75 shoeboxes of beads to make at least one project with--more if I'm inspired! (By the way, the 75 does NOT count findings, stampings, rhinestones, paints & glitter, chain, etc.)

I've always been obsessed with making stuff. When I was very young I'd send away my kindergarten friends who wanted to come and play because I had a project I wanted to work on. I made my first jewelry sale at recess in 6th grade, and went through several other creative phases (including sewing wedding dresses and costumes) before deciding that making jewelry is my very favorite! Now our little house is half covered in supplies and projects in varying degrees of completion (from idea dishes to two things that look cool together but what it's supposed to be still undetermined, to nearly done--lost count after 50+), and I still would rather stay at home and create than be "social."

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to customize your pieces--for example adjust the length if you need it longer or shorter. I also love to make special orders--just let me know!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your jewelry will arrive in a handmade-by-me felt pouch (the felt is 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles), and shipped in a box I have constructed from used cardboard.
