It started with my grandfather's hammer...

Once upon a time I was a book loving kindergarten teacher, but my need for artistic expression took over and broke loose in 2000. I fell in love with crystals, gemstones and designing jewelry. So many metals, colors and textures to play with. I found my love for words, sayings & poetry appearing in my jewelry designs through metal stamping. I vowed there would never be another little 7 year old girl without her unique name on a necklace as I had been.
Then came Bella Beads. In 2006 I opened a brick and mortar bead store in the heart of Andover, Massachusetts. Putting my teaching skills to use, I created a workshop area, classes, ladies nights, summer bead camp, and birthday parties. I offered the services of jewelry repairs, vintage redesigns and custom orders. I employed 10 incredible local students as my assistants. It was a charmed career.
In 2013 my family moved to the coast on Plum Island. I now work out of my home studio, continuing to do what I love. My designs are found in local shops, and here online. My love affair with the beach, ocean, words, crystals, gemstones and metals continue...

Please contact me for a return authorization along with reason for the return within 7 days. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer. A $5.00 return fee will be deducted from your refund amount to cover the cost of free initial shipping.

If an item is received damaged in the mail, please contact me and we can discuss options for correction.
PLEASE NOTE: All stamped pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos. Hand Stamping is what I like to call "Perfectly Imperfect". It is made by the human hand and not a precision engraving machine.
Visa, Mastercard and PayPal accepted. Payment must be received at time of order. Due to quick turnaround time for shipment, once an order is placed it may not be canceled.
Orders will ship via insured Priority mail with delivery confirmation unless otherwise requested. Allow 3-5 days from notification of shipment for your order to arrive. At this time I only ship to the contiguous 48 states.
