About My Art:
My shop reflects my textural and colorful passions; Aussie Metal Clay (with so many beautiful different tones of bronze clay, copper clay and 999 Silver clay, 960 Silver Clay), silver and copper cold connection using beautiful copper and silver sheet metal, wire-wrapping unique designer cut gemstones, beading, and textural kumihimo braiding. I love using gemstones, pearls, shells, metals, silks, ribbons, and leather. I enjoy incorporating multiple shapes, colors and textures into my wearable artwork. I have been designing jewelry since 2007, and I have grown artistically and skillfully through these 10 years.

I have been away from Etsy for a few years because I wanted to focus on improving my skill set so I can bring to my customers the best that I can be. I am ready to expose my passions to you. I will slowly be uploading new works which include new concepts, new techniques and new passions. Check back frequently for new daily surprises that will tease your eyes and tantalize your senses. Most of all, have fun looking at my artwork.

About AvesDesign

Sales 597
On Etsy since 2010

When the Lord closes one door, he opens the prettier one!

Aves Design started from a seed of passion for rocks and shells and earth's wonderful bounty of beauty that was then fueled by a need for my spirit to feel alive and successful. I was a teacher turned school administrator, when my health took a turn for the worst. After several spine and skull surgeries, I was told by my doctors that working a conventional job was not beneficial for me. I was sent home to heal. With that came an inactive mind that became depressed and a body that was used to being very active in job, as well as recreation, turned stationary and painful. I turned to my passion for rocks and combined it with my natural born artist ability and began making earrings and necklaces for friends. I found that this helped my hands feel better and my heart to not hurt as badly.

That was several years ago. Now, I am more confident in my designing and have found silver metal clay and cold connections to incorporate my passion for rocks. I have also developed a love for silks and textiles in braiding with my Kumihimo braids. I still have bad days when my body screams and I can only look at my studio and design in my head, but my spirit is happier and healthier. My life is so much fuller because of my rocks and braids and silver and copper! I have a purpose in life that is much greater then I could have ever seen.

I design each piece with someone else in mind. When I started this process, it was for me. Now, it is for my customers, or friends. It may sound corny, but I see each of my pieces of artwork as a story that has come full circle. I hope to share my spirit with you as you enjoy looking at my artwork, and hopefully, wearing it, as well.

Thanks for visiting my little shop in the great world wide web.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 6, 2018
Aves Design believes in presenting a beautiful piece of artwork to customers that can be worn to the office, out to play, or out in the evening air to a beautiful event. Whether it is a pair of pearl and shell earrings, a gemstone necklace, or a crystal lanyard for the office, I design these pieces with the thought of wearability and beauty merging together. Each gemstone, pearl, Czech crystals or glass bead is selected with the anticipation of them working together to create the perfect piece of art that is comfortable to wear. I hope that you enjoy each piece as much as I did when I created for you.
