archaic design jewelry, handcrafted and handmade jewelry

I make all of the jewelry you see in my shop, it's either handmade, hand crafted or assembled by me in my studio, it's a one woman show. I do share studio space with Tula the pig who likes to mess around under my jeweler's bench whenever possible. She plays with the foot peddle of my flexshaft, she likes to hear it whirl and spin, the ever entertaining pig, thank you Tula.

I support the handmade, hand crafted artisan, I hope you do too.

I take all of my photos with a macro lens for detail, the jewelry may appear larger than it actually is. I try to give accurate measurements and show the piece in my hand for reference. if you have questions about my jewelry, please contact me I'm happy to answer them. thanks!
