Beadwork Inspired by Nature

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    NEW MOSAIC SECTION, ENJOY!!!

Welcome to Gay’s legacy Shop!These one of a kind pieces of jewelry, hair ornaments and beaded wall pictures were inspired by the beautiful forms and colors in nature. Gay’s influences were from art history, mythology and Celtic culture. The colors in her jewelry were selected from the beautiful colors in the semi-precious stones she purchased from the amazingly gifted lapidary artists on Etsy. Some of these pieces tell a story or represent an environment.

We ship world wide. International customers need to email us for shipping options and shipping cost.

Please be aware that the new ZOOM feature blows up each photo to double+ the size of the beads and details seen in this Zoom mode may not be visible or will appear differently to the naked eye. Great for seeing details but an exaggeration regarding the overall quality and effect of the piece being viewed.
All of Gay’s designs were original, unique, one of a kind and made by her alone. She used the finest supplies and materials available with great care for a durable, lasting and comfortable,wearable work of art.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Unfortunately due to Gays passing in August, there will be no more custom orders.

I will continue to post new pieces and hope that they can continue to be sent out into the world to bring joy as she intended.

New CLEARANCE area listing big mark downs for pieces that have been in the shop for a few years. These items need to be purchased separately and are not part of the sales.


REFUNDS and EXCHANGES: Payment for sales, clearance or discounted pieces are not refundable. Sales and discounted pieces may be exchanged for a piece or pieces totaling the same dollar amount spent on the piece being exchanged. Returned pieces will be carefully inspected for any damage. If the returned piece is in perfect condition and can be relisted, then the refund is issued.
All measurements are carefully listed. All the photos of the pieces are done in natural light and look true to color on my monitor. All descriptions are as accurate and complete as possible.

Unique, Original Designs from Nature and a Love of Antiquity

As a life time artist and designer for over 40 years, I have shown my work in major galleries in San Francisco and New York. I have a MFA in Painting and Drawing and a BFA in Printmaking from the California College of the Arts. I studied Cloisonné Enamel and Gold and Silver Smithing at the State University of New York at New Paltz. My background is mainly in Fine Art and I have worked for major gift wear houses as a commercial designer and illustrator. Also, I am a college art instructor for Yuba Community College and the Davis Adult School.
I have always loved antiques for their beautiful craftsmenship and fine detail, a technical goal of mine. I have always been drawn to the beauty of nature visually for the colors, patterns, textures and curvilinear forms. My love and respect for all living things and deep concern for Earths future has brought me to a point in my art where I felt I must create amulets reflecting those feelings. I think that the wearing of a beautiful jasper, agate or fossil and an environment created around that stone gives the wearer and the viewer a moment of natural wonder and enhances their love of nature.
Etsy is Heaven for Artists. World wide exposure and reasonable fees. Not only do you get to show your work to the world, but you make friends world wide. Also, an artist can offer their work for sale without inflating the price for the gallery.
I find as a shopper on Etsy, all the cool and unusual parts for my jewelry and beautiful supplies from creative vendors worldwide.
All my pieces are original designs, I copy no one. My jewelry and beaded pictures are entirely designed and constructed by me alone. Unfortunately, the photography is mine also and I am struggling with showing the rich colors in my pieces. Sometimes I draw the design out before hand and sometimes I let the piece develop as I work. I enjoy working with customers on custom pieces, happy to incorporate their treasured objects in the piece.
