gewgaws' Shop Announcement

Welcome to Gewgaws & Gimcracks on Etsy: contemporary artisan fine jewelry and original designs; responsibly sourced natural materials. I use the highest quality freshwater pearls, undyed gemstones, conflict-free rough diamonds, and precious metals in my pieces.

Gewgaws & Gimcracks is a one-person shop. I create in small quantities, and many of my pieces are one-of-a-kind. If you like what you see, get it before it's gone!

My women's earrings and necklaces are original, versatile pieces that balance delicate and rustic elements. Unisex and men's accessories are made with recycled glass, stone, and metals: ornamentation meets minimalism.

I stand by my workmanship. You may return any regular item for any reason within 7 days of receipt. Custom orders are final sales and may not be returned. If your jewelry becomes damaged as a result of faulty workmanship within the first year after purchase, I will repair it free of charge (less shipping costs).

What does it mean and how do I pronounce it?

gewgaw - (GYOOgaw) (IPA: 'gjuùgO) - noun - something gaudy and useless; trinket; bauble

gimcrack - (JIMkrak) (IPA: 'dZIm,krQk) - noun - a showy, useless trifle

UPDATE! Gewgaws & Gimcracks artisan fine jewelry is now available at Apt. 202 Boutique at Ninth and Ninth in Salt Lake City! Head over to one of SLC's chicest boutiques for some great exclusives and special prices!

UPDATE! Gewgaws & Gimcracks has been invited to participate in "Made in Queens" at the Queens Museum of Art. If you're in Flushing Meadows/Corona Park and want to see more pieces in person, please stop by! More information at

Praise from some of my non-Etsy customers:

"IT LOOKS AMAZING! I was surprised at how actually kind of dainty it is, cause the picture is a close-up to capture the details — the chain is very fine, but also very sturdy and the necklace falls right around the hollow in my throat. It is, in short, even more gorgeous than I thought from the picture, and I can’t wait to take a pic of me wearing it!"

"Thank you so much, it is so lovely!!!"

"The necklace is amazing! Thank you! I'm tempted to keep for myself..."

"I really really love your design, pearls are always caught my eyes, beautiful work, your new fan : )"

"I just purchased a triple strand of pearls and I love them! They're timeless."

"It is AMAZING and I get tons of compliments…dresses up and down. LOVE LOVE LOVE Gewgaws & Gimcracks on Etsy. Huge fan."
