FRIENDLY WREN JEWELRY IS ON VACATION

About

I am a jewelry artist challenged by Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a genetic connective tissue disorder, that has recently prompted me to reinvent myself.

Before I was affected by this condition, I was under the misguided impression that having artistic ability meant solely having the ability to draw or paint. However, I now realize that artistic talent encompasses so much more - which is evidenced by the beautiful and varied creations featured by Etsy's artisans. My condition has also come with the silver lining of having more time to spend with family and friends and for new endeavors, like this one.

Unable to work outside the home anymore, Etsy has allowed me to feel productive and create and sell when I'm feeling my best and to rest when I'm feeling my worst. Etsy teams also help me stay in the loop and make new friends.

I also have a great love of flowers and plants. While I have recently had to cut down quite a bit on my backyard gardening, I still enjoy it on a smaller scale - the small garden in the front of the house, potted plants on the back deck, and houseplants. African violets in a variety of colors grace my jewelry work room. Many of my jewelry pieces tend to be floral themed or at least floral colors. I am enthralled by the way different flower colors blend with green leaves.

A very meaningful quote for me is: "Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you do not have the strength."

    I have great passion for jewelry! The lure of its sparkle is virtually irresistible to me. I come from several generations of jewelry lovers, on both sides of the family, so its in my blood.

Hello and welcome to my shop! I hope you enjoy my handmade jewelry and that you find that certain something you've been looking for. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please visit again soon, as I will be listing many more items in the days ahead.

I love so many different types of jewelry, at this point I have not limited myself to just one style. For me, it's just like the saying about eating potato chips goes - "you can't have just one!"

Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that some of the materials used are vintage and thus may have an aged patina of the metal or evidence of gentle prior use, which I feel only enhances a piece's charm. Of course, I will make sure to disclose the condition of all vintage materials used when I list the items. Along those lines, please make sure to take good care of your purchased items, as vintage and some other materials are quite delicate and fragile.

In addition, please be aware that there are natural color variations in semiprecious stones, and no two will look exactly alike.

Please feel free to converse with me if you would like an item made to your custom specifications and I would be honored to do that for you.

Please also remember that pets and children may find jewelry appealing because of its sparkle, too, just not in the way we humans do. FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY, PLEASE KEEP ALL OF MY ITEMS SAFELY AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND/OR PETS at all times.
