About

Making jewelry to last you a lifetime.

I am a self taught jewelry artist. It is my passion to create something that you can wear and enjoy for a lifetime. Everything you see in my shop is handmade by me. I buy the components and put them together to create the lovely pieces you see.

It all started many years ago when my daughters were in high school and were going to all the things that high school girls go to and they wanted earrings to match their dresses and gowns. They couldn't find them in the stores, so I started making earrings at that time. It evolved into not only I was making earrings for them, I was making them for all their friends and then their friend's families. Some asked me to make earrings to match the colors of their schools. And the rest is history!

I create southwest, rustic, boho, feminine and romantic styles. Since I live in Arizona and see a lot of southwest designs I have a tendency to lean toward that direction. There is so much beauty here in the state that inspires me whether I'm in the southwest deserts , Sedona and it's beautiful red rocks or up in the mountains with all the lake, rivers and pines. Yes, we do have running rivers here, but not in the deserts. Since I do live in the deserts it's not hard to like the rustic southwest charm we find in jewelry here. I try to bring that to the rest of the world. But I am also a romantic at heart. I love the Victorian era jewelry which I work with frequently. I mostly use sterling and fine silver, copper and brass.

A little bit about me. I am a wife, a mother and a grandma. I have 2 daughters, 2 sons in law and 5 grandchildren. We now have one grandson in the Navy, following his mother, father and step father and uncle's footsteps. I am a retired now and it's just my husband and I and our two rescue kitties that live in this big old house. It was hard retiring after 38 of working in the medical field, but well worth it! I spend my time with my husband either working in the garden we have, reading out by the pool or in my bead room making jewelry. We do love to travel and enjoy our time together whether it's on a beach or up in the mountains in northern Arizona after the snows melts to fish in the streams and lakes. I am truly blessed that we both have made it this far and for the most part in one piece!

I wish you all peace and many blessing!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I can customize a design just for you, or if you see something in my shop and want to change it a bit, just contact me first before buying that design and we can work out the details.

Care instructions

Keep your jewelry in a ziplock bag and it will stay clean. Use a soft cloth to polish your jewelry or use a jewelry cloth that you can get at a jewelry store. Sterling silver and copper will have a nice patina in time.

Gift wrapping and packaging

My items are coming to you in a nice little jewelry box with a tulle ribbon around it or wrapped in tissue and put in an organza bag ready for gift giving.

Custom Orders

If there's something that you would like me to make for you and don't see it in my shop, please contact me through Etsy and we can discuss it. It does take more time to do this. I may have to order supplies for what you want. I will let you know at that time how long it will take.
