I haven't taken this necklace off since it arrived. It is just as I saw it in the picture - well, better. And obviously shipped with love.

A Pearl of a Girl Handcrafted Jewelry

I've enjoyed making crafts ever since I was a little girl; I can remember making various things with my grandmother, Hettie (the handsome lady in my shop profile picture), so when I was introduced to beading in 2004, that was no exception. At first I started making jewelry and giving it as gifts, and after hearing "you should really sell your stuff" a few hundred times I finally decided to open an Etsy shop in November 2011. I've learned alot since I started selling on Etsy, and it's been both challenging and rewarding. It's hard to explain how it feels when someone purchases something you made-- it's incredible really. Etsy is such a huge marketplace with many talented artists, many of whom make jewelry just as I do, so it's always an honor when someone makes a purchase.

Ok, so here's me in a nutshell: I'm a Pittsburgh native, and the solo force behind my shop; a dedicated ICU and sexual assault nurse, forensic nursing grad student, and Jane Austen junkie. I'm a yoga-loving, music inclined, all around crafty girl; a wiener dog mom x2, a total Star Wars nerd, avid Steelers fan, and my family means the world to me. I'm proud to be part of such a talented community of handmade artisans!

    I've been making and designing jewelry since 2004, and when it comes to my Etsy shop, I'm a one-woman show! I work full time as a Registered Nurse, on call as a sexual assault RN, and I'm also a grad student working towards an MSN in Forensics.
