About

Handmade jewelry to fit your mood.

Put on a gorgeous handmade necklace, bracelet or earrings and your whole day can change. You know that feeling. When you're perfectly turned out -- a great hair day, a smashing ensemble, the perfect accessories to match. You've got the world by the tail, and you are going to turn some heads, gosh darn it! It's a great feeling, isn't it?

But how often does that happen?

I design jewelry for those 'everything's right with the world' days, but more importantly, for all those days in between. Those days when the laundry's piling up, the kids have the flu, you need groceries and you just can't bring yourself to get out of your sweatpants. Those days when you're feeling like last night's tuna casserole -- with no salt.

And do you know why?

Because after my company closed Bead Style magazine and I lost my job as Associate Editor -- a job I loved -- I had a lot of tuna casserole days. One day, to feel better, I decided to make myself a necklace. And I put that sparkling crystal number on with my t-shirt and yoga pants -- and something magical happened. I felt instantly better! Just that little dose of 'zaa!' lifted my spirits.

Although I was a published jewelry designer, I had never sold my work, but I figured if donning a piece of my jewelry could boost my mood, it could work for you, too, and my new calling was born.

So if you're having an 'on top of the world day,' great. Buy that perfect piece of handmade jewelry and strut your stuff. And if you're not, go ahead and buy it anyway. It'll make you feel better, and you deserve it. Just wear it and smile -- you'll look beautiful no matter what! My hope is that you enjoy wearing it as much as I did making it.

Rest assured that everything in my shop is handmade in my home studio with loving care. I use quality materials that inspire me at that moment, and offer varying price points so there's something for everyone. I'm constantly experimenting with style and technique, so check back often -- you never know if you'll find a boho bracelet, sexy earrings or a totally glam necklace.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'd be happy to create an extra special handmade jewelry piece just for you. Please send me a message with style, size, color, stones, etc. and what your time frame is. I'll get back to you with a price and estimated delivery date once I source the materials. Please note that custom orders must be prepaid and are not returnable.

Can you make multiples of an item?

While most of my handmade jewelry is one-of-a-kind, I can create multiples of an item if the materials are available. If you have a request for multiple bridesmaids, for example, don't hesitate to ask.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your jewelry will be packaged in a clear plastic bag and placed in a lovely black box. I wrap the box in fun washi tape with my logo sticker for secure closure. It will be placed in a mailer with a care postcard and business card. If you need special wrapping or a personalized card added, please send me a message.
