Creating unique one of a kind jewelry pieces makes me happy

I started making jewelry about 20 years ago for personal wear. I had a woman stop me in a store and ask about a necklace I had made..."Where did you buy it?" she asked. When I told her I made it, she asked for one just like it. At that moment I knew that each piece had to be unique because every person is unique. I agreed to make a variation of the necklace and she was very happy.

After that, I started making more earrings and bracelets as well. I love working with natural stones, things that sparkle...I create pieces that a person feels good about wearing. Fun jewelry, awareness jewelry, wedding jewelry, retirement gifts, Sweet name it. I use quality materials. I use 49 strand beading wire, Sterling Silver findings and clasps. I can use other materials upon customer request.

I get inspired by my customer's stories about why he/she wants a custom piece of jewelry. In my shop, if you request a custom piece, I will design it and do basic assembly of the piece for your pre-approval. I take a picture and send a quote. That way, you know what you are hidden surprises or fees.

Welcome to Creations By BEC!

Hello! My name is Brenda. I am a mother of 2 wonderful children who are the lights of my life. My son is 16 and my daughter is 14.

I enjoy making handcrafted jewelry, reading Kinsey Millhone Mysteries by Sue Grafton, quilting, needlepoint and cross stitch, baking, making Christmas ornaments and doing crafts. I collect turtle figurines, nun figurines, and crosses. I love gazebos, fountains, and beautiful landscapes.

My philosophies for selling on Etsy: Safety - Trust - Courtesy -Fast Shipping

My goal is to provide a pleasant buying experience for my customers. My items come from my smoke free home and are packed carefully. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

My goal is to present a piece that makes you feel happy to wear. I often use hand crafted sterling silver beads, hand crafted glass beads, Swarovski Crystals, and natural stones. Because these beads are hand crafted or naturally occurring stones, each bead may not be exactly the same. It is these imperfections that give uniqueness and beauty to each piece.
