History Directs the Future

I love accessories!!! I would spend most of my paycheck, after bills, food, gas..., every weeks on earrings, necklaces and bracelets. And it didn't help that I worked in the mall!!! I had just completed a book, the "Boleyn Inheritance" by one of my favorite authors Phillippa Gregory and I decided that I needed more information on Anne Boleyn. After researching and reading for hours I kept coming across this STUNNING piece of jewelry that she always kept close to her, the signature "B" necklace in gold and pearls. I had to have it so I made one with an "H"" instead for Hart and then one with a cameo... People kept asking me where I bought the pieces and when I said I made them it was always immediately followed by "You should make jewelry and sell it", "Do you sell your jewelry?", "Can you make me ____?", and "How much do you charge for ____?".

I am still a one person operation, occasionally hiring people to help me sell at fairs, shows..., and I am still reading Gregory's books and drawing inspiration for my pieces. I have come a LONG way and I see A Queen's Dowry going even further in the future.

I make premium handmade boutique jewelry at a not so premium price. My friends say that I see beads and I see them in a piece, its all fun for me. I feel that the pieces that I make are fun and fun to wear. I like making jewelry that I enjoy wearing not that trends say I should wear.
I enjoy learning new skills in jewelry making and you will see the fruits of this as I post more and more items!!

I love feedback, so leave the good, bad and the ugly... just be fair.

There's a token of my appreciation in EVERY package, so THANK YOU in advance!!!!

SO please be aware of this when your package arrives and there is a slight difference between the postage that you paid and what I paid at the Post Office.
