About

Basic Elegance ... when beautiful creations emerge from the ripples in life ...

Welcome to my Basic Elegance Jewelry Etsy Shop, we sell handmade European style beads and lava bead bracelets made with polymer clay.

My daughter, Victoria, opened this shop in October 2015 to help me. In 2014, I caught a virus that destroyed the balance nerve in my ear and I was suffering from ongoing Vertigo. I was living my life in constant dizziness and imbalance ... a far cry from the Super Mom I used to be at home and the Energizer Bunny that I was at my job. Visit after visit with doctors and specialists, vestibular therapy and rest, was not helping and by February 2015 I was in a very sad place.

So, my wonderful and supportive family ... with Victoria in the lead ... started me working with polymer clay as an eye/hand therapy. They bought me a desk, a lamp with a magnifying glass and starter packages of Premo Sculpey. Then, Victoria sat down with me to "play with clay". BOOM ... a creative switch turned on and I had a purpose to my life again! I could see the designs I wanted to create in my head and Victoria spent her free time adding the final touches that I couldn't do with my limited focus. Our Mother/Daughter team brought me out of the pity party and back into the world. Since that time, we have had so much fun together, creating unique pieces of jewelry!

I am doing much better now. I will never be cured of my Vestibular Disorder, but I have come a long way because of the jewelry designing and using Young Living essential oils. (Note: I don't sell the essential oils in this shop, but if you have any questions on the support these magic little bottles can have on the body, please message me).

It is now coming up to June 2018, Victoria graduated with her Bachelor of Public Relations and is going to follow her dreams this summer before she begins her career. My 22 year old baby girl is spending 3 months travelling Thailand, Indonesia and volunteering at an orphanage in Africa. Yes, this Canadian Mama Bear is going to be lonely. So, be expecting some new designs this summer. I'll be filling my days in ways that make me think of her ... designing jewerly and sharing Young Living products!

Thanks so much for visiting, have an "elegant" day!

    I am Mom to two fabulous children. Victoria and I have always been a "team" and I am going to miss her this summer. Zack helps me when he can, but art just doesn't interest him. I guess I'll fill my lonely days designing pieces of jewelry! :)
