Distinctive Artisan Jewelry to Indulge your Unique Spirit.

I began my journey in 2004, designing and creating artisan jewelry for myself and as gifts to friends and family. My passion grew out of wanting to wear jewelry that was different and not cookie cutter like most of the designs at the time.

None of it appealed to me because it all looked the same, was too expensive and very rarely could I find something I loved in silver or copper that fit. Having plus size features made it difficult to find bracelets and necklaces that would fit as intended. So I started designing my own.

I realized that most of the pieces that I did own, not only held sentimental value but were adjusted to fit comfortably. One of my favorite "go to" pieces is the very first Fine Silver Pendant I made during a Jewelry Class.

Once I started designing and creating, I couldn’t stop. I started teaching local jewelry classes. I loved sharing what I had learned and watching others show pride in what they could make for themselves.

Shortly thereafter I decided to apply to Fine Art shows. For quite a few years, it fueled my desire to keep going and to continue learning as many techniques as possible.

Transitioning from Fine Art Fairs to Online shopping made it easier for many of my customers to buy my designs for a special occasion or because it reflects their own unique style.

I design Artisan Jewelry for anyone who feels confident in their own skin and wants to put their unique spirit out into the world.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I take great care to package your purchase in a gift box and cloth bag. I then ship your purchase in a bubble shipping envelope for extra protection.

I will always include a receipt of your purchase unless you request otherwise.

Upon request, I can also include a simple "A Gift for You!" note card with a quick and short message for no additional charge.

Care instructions

Do not sleep, wash dishes, exercise or take showers with jewelry on.
Some jewelry may contain hand dyed silk or dyed freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones that will fade with improper use or extreme exposure to sunlight.
Put on your jewelry after you have put on makeup, perfume/cologne or hairspray.
Do not use harsh chemicals to clean jewelry with pearls or semi-precious beads as they can damage the luster or finish.
All metal patinas are temporary and will fade or darken with time. The patina can be prolonged by storing jewelry in a small Ziploc baggie. This will also protect other jewelry from tarnishing prematurely.
Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper can be brightened with a jewelers’ cloth.

Sizing details

I prefer not to make changes to my designs, however, contact me and we might be able to make some adjustment depending on the jewelry piece. To determine your neck size, use a necklace that is at your perfect length. Measure it with a ruler from end to end. Here are some standard Necklace lengths:

Women's Necklace Size Chart
14” - Fits like a choker
16” - Fits like a collar, right at the base of the neck
18” - Falls at the collarbone
20” - Falls few inches below collarbone
22" - At or above a neckline
24" - Below a neckline
36" - Is extra-long and can be wrapped around for a double 18” necklace

Gold Filled Jewelry

Due to costs of materials, I sometimes choose to use Gold Filled elements in my designs.

Gold Filled elements contain an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal, such as silver or brass. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as gold filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating.
Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. Gold Filled elements are regulated by Government Standards where gold plated elements are not. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold and is generally considered keepsake or heirloom quality.
