This was a custom perfume vial pendant with stars and moon theme .. It came out so beautifully! The moonstone she chose has a ton of blue flash to it and the piece is very well made. Carole has a perfectionist way and takes care with all the little details. This will be cherished and passed down to someone I love one day. Thank you for making this piece for me! <3

It keeps me sane.

Many people ask me why I design jewelry, and I do not have one specific answer. I design because I need an outlet for expression for myself, because I LOVE to see how happy it makes people, because I am drawn to stones of all types, and adore color and seasons and texture. I giggle when I discover new ways to twist wire, set stones, and mix new color combos. I design because I have always had a deep desire to use my hands, and it is cheaper than therapy;) I am lucky enough to be able to design in my home, while I attempt to raise my three children and gaggle of animals:)
I am self taught, and run every aspect of my business by myself, some better than others:) Thank you for dropping in and reading this little Story about me. I hope you are able to find something to make you smile in my shop.

    For as long as I can remember, I have always felt a strong desire to create with my hands. It was after the birth of my first daughter that I was able to begin my journey designing jewelry.

Hello friends. I welcome you to browse, and hopefully find that little something to make you smile. I try to have a vast selection available, but with 3 kiddos, a husband, and a 98 pound puppy, I get a little caught up in life. If you see something you like, but would like it in a different stone, different ear wire, etc, do not hesitate to ask!! I am on Etsy several times a day, and always try to answer convos promptly.
