Announcement    HOLIDAY SALE! All Necklaces are 25% OFF plus free domestic shipping. No coupon needed.
Welcome to my world of unique beaded bohemian jewelry made exclusively by me using beads from around the world! Thank you for stopping by. Every purchase is gift wrapped and comes in a beautiful jewelry pouch suitable for gift giving. This is a Pay it Forward courtesy. I do not charge my buyers for this little extra.

I'm an Edgy Bohemian jewelry designer making beautiful Boho creations using antique African trade beads, genuine turquoise, Hill Tribe silver and unique and sometimes the odd and unusual, quality materials. Everything I design and make I would wear myself. I can not create a piece of jewelry that I myself don't love. Art for your wrist! I hope you enjoy looking through my offerings and thank you for stopping by my shop.

All my designs are personally handmade by me with much detail, pride and care. I search in many different places from small little hole in the wall shops to large bead shows to find unique and sometimes delightfully odd, high quality supplies and select each and every bead, charm and clasp myself and every other single item that goes into one of my beautiful bohemian pieces. I hope you see in them what I see and pick out something that speaks to you and wear it with joy, or pride, or remembrance, and capture a bit of that bohemian soul for yourself.

BRACELET SIZING EXPLAINED
Measuring Your Wrist for an Accurate Bracelet Size
To find your perfect bracelet size, follow these steps:
STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.

STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.

STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below.
Fitting Style Add inch(es) to wrist size
Snug Fit Add 1/4" to 1/2"
Comfort Fit Add 3/4" to 1"
Loose Fit Add 1 1/4"

Do you want a snug or loose fit? Well, that really will vary between each individual. If you are buying a delicate bracelet with a thin chain, we suggest doing a snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfort fit except when buying large or thick cuffs or bangles.

Small - 6.5"
Medium - 7.0"

A Bohemian Soul

I've been an artist as long as I can remember. Coloring, drawing, painting and creating murals.
I discovered beading in the mid 90's and fell in love with the task, the beads and the results of my efforts. I have a bead obsession you might say. My dreams are to travel to Arizona, New Mexico and Thailand to hunt and purchase my favorite beads in person.

My jewelry is influenced by the earthy Native American elements of the Pacific Northwest where I live and breathe and dream, as well as by the Native tribes of many US and foreign lands. Antique African trade beads, Southwest genuine turquoise, the unique and unusual and Hill Tribe Silver from exotic Thailand all carry the whispers of past cultures and extraordinary adventures across a thousand rivers and mountains. I love to bring together this crazy, eclectic mix of color and texture and whimsy with leather, turquoise, antique African trade beads and sterling silver to create eclectic, one of a kind creations for everyone.

In both trial and victory, I’ve defined my life by the motto that “this too shall pass”. Things will always get better. No matter what happens, you can find the beauty and the adventure and the lesson. You can pick yourself up and delight in the magic of snow falling on a quiet winter night, or a dog curled up on your lap because you’re the best friend he’s ever had. So, my hope is that when you wear my jewelry you are able to embrace the freedom and peace that comes from living like that. Pick out something that speaks to you and wear it with joy, or pride, or remembrance, and capture a bit of that bohemian soul for yourself.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I offer gift wrapping however it is not a special service that buyers can request. I choose the wrapping. All my products are lovingly packaged in tissue paper then put in a beautiful jewelry pouch. This is a service I provide at no cost to my buyers. If you are buying an item as a gift, you can send me a message if you would like me to include a card with your words of choice. I would be more then happy to do this. Thank you.

Custom and personalized orders

I am always happy to do a custom order. Feel free to convo me and we can work together to create a beautiful item that you will love.

Care instructions

Many of my items have sterling silver or Karen Hill Tribe silver beads and charms. To care for them you can use a small soft silver polishing cloth and rub the pieces with it and it will brighten them up and remove any tarnish.

With my stretch bracelets I suggest rolling them on and off your wrist and not pulling them hard to get them over your hand. They are very durable but they are made from stretch cord and need to be put on and removed with care so they will not get stretched out over time.

What are the sizes of the beads, charms and clasps?

I try and take my photos so you can see the whole item and then close up's of the details of certain beads, charms and clasps. The items in the photos can appear larger then the actual item. This is for your benefit so you can really see what you are purchasing. All the tiniest details. If you have any questions about bead, charm or clasp size I will be more then happy to give you the measurements. Feel free to send me a message. You can do so by clicking on the contact under my photo. Or where you see Contact. I'm usually able to answer within the 1/2 hour during business hours 8AM to 8PM PST. USA. Due to the many different types of beads, charms and clasps I use it is unrealistic for me to give measurements on each item. Thank you.
