So surprised at how much I love this! Good sturdy quality. I saw a similar pin on a lady's cowl in my knitting group and searched the internet for something similar. There is not much out there with this look. Thank you for the beautiful piece!

This was very pretty and looked like the picture. I received it quickly and it was packaged so prettily. The problem was, I have thick hair and it did not hold my hair as I was expecting. I sent it to my aunt who has fine, shoulder length hair. She loves it! She says it holds her hair up perfectly.

About

Unique style and design in OOAK wearable art in jewelry with some pop and tweaks

I have always been petite and very non flashy, kind of a boring little blond. Oh how I envied those beautiful women who could wear bold, eye popping fashion and jewelry. I slowly came upon the idea to step it up a notch that was sorely needed and rise up to my full 5' 1" and take a chance.

I enrolled in a jewelry making class and with my type A personality with a little OCD on the side, I really excelled in the art. I was born with an active, creative mind. It just took me a while to act openly upon it. That was ten years ago now. To see me today, I am no longer the boring, unflashy blond. Still petite but I certainly stand out. My jewelry styles change like my hair styles. I love soooo many different things so you will see many different styles to my jewelry.

My work is precise and careful. My OCD helps me with that. Asymmetrical positions just fascinate me and you will see it reflected in my designs. Sophisticated, bohemian, bold, delicate, evening, fun, daring, classic, dreamy, rustic, southwestern, copper and brass metal work and etchings, enameling in bold, brilliant colors is so much fun; I love it all. There is something for everyone in my designs.

From my pet and smoke free studio in the mountains of New Mexico (USA), to you, enjoy my creations and live life.
