Announcement   No two necklaces are the same...If I reproduce one, I add something else that is special to it! I love COLOR, pearls, gemstones, vintage beads and the special shapes I find such as briolettes and rondelles! Most of the beads I buy are from etsy or ebay so often what I make can not be reproduced! So if you like it, buy it! I enjoy the aqua, blue, teal family of colors and have to make myself switch to another palette! I also like to mix the rainbow colors in to one piece so you can wear it with whatever color top is in your closet!

SOMETHING NEW for me but old! I am incorporating some vintage beads in to my designs. Having fun figuring out what to do with these great beads! Here is my new and growing Vintage section:

About

Exploration and Relaxation

Many years ago I needed a necklace to set off an outfit. After looking in numerous places I wasn't satisfied because I would either spend too much or not have all the accents I wanted. So off to the bead store and the rest is history!

Mixing colors and shapes is very soothing to me...could do it for hours. I have so many ideas but not enough hours!

I enjoy creating custom pieces for friends for certain outfits or a special gift. I support many auctions for great causes by donating necklaces for the events.

All jewelry is handmade. I started out making necklaces for myself, family, and friends then expanded to items that I donated to annual fundraising auctions. I now continue those practices and sell some in a consignment shop named "Nest". Our boys have graduated from college and have moved on :o(. I work part-time and this is another excuse to not do something around the house! :o)
