Announcement   Rick and I create each piece with our highest sense of design and care for detail. We realize that it will express its wearer as well as its maker.

Most of the work in our shop is already made and ships in 1-3 business days. We've added a "Made To Order" section now where production times vary and are noted in each listing. These pieces are made for you after you place your order. Most take 1-2 weeks before shipping. In some cases there's flexibility if you need the item sooner.

As always we welcome custom orders.

Best,
Jan

These are beautifully crafted, delicate earrings perfect for everyday wear. I bought a pair several years ago, and lost them. So I was delighted to be able to order another pair from these wonderful craftspeople. I received them before their promised date, and am enjoying them once again!

About

From the beach to the jeweler's bench...

Beaches and woods are great meditative spaces, enlarging creative experience. I work "off the beaten path" in a home studio that opens to hemlocks and birches. My jewelry and sculpture express non-objective organic and geometric forms inspired by nature, shaped by imagination.

Earning an MFA in Sculpture, I taught welding and worked in a bronze foundry. Later, experimenting with fibers changed my design aesthetic. Now ideas are realized more spontaneously with the simplest cold joining methods in metals. I love creating in the moment and processing thoughts directly into materials. It's what I call "drawing in space", combining linear elements from drawing with space ideas from sculpture.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Bangles:

My opposing hooks design is easy-open, slips up under any wrist size. Four approximate sizes: X-Small 6.5, Small 6.75, Medium 7, and Large 7.5 inches inner circumference. I can make custom sizes. The ideal place to measure is around your wrist bone and perhaps you might allow a little extra for ease of movement.

Ear Wires:

We use three standard ear wire gauges to create our earrings. The smallest designs are usually done in 21 gauge, mediums in 20 gauge, and larger ones tend to be in 18 gauge wire. That's the thickest ear wire we use; it fits most ears but please consider comfort before you purchase.

Custom and personalized orders

We work from our own original designs creating from something we've listed but sold, or one of our pieces you'd like in a different size, metal, or stone.

Made To Order

Most of the work in our shop has been made and is ready to ship in 1-3 days. Please note though that we offer a "Made To Order" section where production times vary, may take longer, and are noted in each listing. These pieces will be made for you after you place your order. They usually take 1-2 weeks before shipping, a few take longer.
