About

Gem For Joy Began One Midnight And Never Stopped

I have been a member of Etsy for years, but just began listing in November 2013. For many years I had a career in marketing for a major television network headquartered in New York City. I left the corporate world to become a full time stay at home mom, taking care of an extended family including my son, husband and two ailing parents. My “work day” usually ended around midnight and I looked for a way to relax before calling it a night. So I started making limited edition and one of a kind jewelry for gifts. More and more people started to ask for my “midnight productions”. That was the beginning of Gem For Joy, a realization of a lifelong dream to have my own business. Since then I began teaching jewelry making, mosaics and art to children and adults. The calming, therapeutic affect of crafting with your hands spread "joy" to all.

My shop is always evolving. I curated collections for you to enjoy--everything from dainty modern to boho chic to statement Southwest and more. So sit back, relax and enjoy the many looks and styles that help us express who we are, what we feel, as part of our everlasting journey for true JOY.

May your pockets always be filled with keys to hope, happiness and joy. Many thanks. Sandra Ann

Favorite Pet: Tommy, beloved silky terrier of 13 years who sat by my side while I strung every bead, tied every knot and attached every lock…only interrupting me for our nightly snack.

    Whether it's a necklace for a new mom, a boho wrap bracelet, or a Southwest vintage cuff, I am happy telling stories of joy through design. Designs are the beginning of expression-- open for you to interpret and create fantastic endings.

JEWELRY CARE ADVICE: Gemstone and glass pearl beads are heavier than plastic or resin beads. They could scratch or break if dropped, try to be careful. Also try to store necklaces flat to maintain shape. For easy wear, try to coordinate matching sets of necklace, earring, bracelet and store together. To keep your jewelry happy, do not wet stones, glass beads or freshwater pearls. Avoid contacting hair spray, perfume and makeup with jewelry. Use a jeweler's polishing cloth to shine sterling silver.
