Locket functions and looks great as described. There was an issue with my order, so I contacted Char (the seller) who promptly and effectively resolved the issue. I am very satisfied with the product and the customer service provided by Char. Would definitely consider buying from her shop again!

About

Designing jewelry is my passion and I love creating unique assemblage pieces that are collectible and everyone can enjoy.

I have always enjoyed crafting and creating things. Early on I had a wholesale gift business and loved it. As life moved forward I moved along with it and changed careers. After many years I was fortunate enough to get back to my true passion of designing and creating jewelry.

I learned about Etsy through a family member and decided to check it out. It was a great venue and looked like a good place to test online marketing with my jewelry. I was delighted to find it was a good fit for me and works well for my jewelry designs.

My favorite designs includes the use of brass and silver ox stampings, vintage jewelry, semi - precious gem stones, beads and other findings that catch my eye.
Although I design and make many different pieces of jewelry, featuring an array of mixed media, my favorites to design and create are music box lockets and pocket watches.

Having the opportunity to design and create is truly my dream job and I plan to keep doing it for many years to come. It is always a pleasure to add new designs to our current collection.

Thank you for stopping by to visit and take a peek at my favorites!
