Idol Hands—Not So Idle!

After many years of being a teacher, tied to the school year's schedule, I finally retired and now have more time to devote to what I love to do most, create. I wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go because I love many creative arts. Then I took some classes in metal arts and it rekindled my passion for making jewelry. That was it! I started to make jewelry using copper, brass, and silver metals, and found I loved spending time honing the various techniques used in metal smithing.

I entered my jewelry in several art fairs and was pleased with the response I received from my customers. Along with the art shows, I decided to build a business through Etsy. It rapidly became apparent to me it entailed more work than I ever imagined. Not only did I have to become a photographer, I had to learn more about the computer, postage, packaging and shipping, and write copy for each piece of jewelry.

It’s because of the support from family and friends I continue to improve my techniques, jewelry and shop. It has been five years since I joined the Etsy community, and you should take a chance on me because I will stand behind every project I create. I hope you enjoy the site and like my jewelry!

    Owner, Creator

    Despite the name "Idol Hands Creations" my hands have rarely been idle as I pursue my interest in the creative arts. Working with metal is my current passion as I create special pieces for people looking for one-of-a-kind jewelry to wear and enjoy.

  • Deborah


    Friend of mine for 46 years and now a neighbor. I write the copy and she shows me the errors of my way. She has been in the public eye through WCCO, Star Tribune, and U of MN, just to name a few. Thanks Deb.

  • Jessica and Ben


    I'm lucky to have a daughter and son-in-law who are willing to model some of my jewelry. Also, they have the patience to help me with the social media.

  • Zach


    It's great to have a son who is willing to wear some of my jewelry for the camera. He also has a great sense of humor and reminds me not to take myself too seriously.

  • Bob


    I've included my husband in my business. He is a great photographer and artist, and now is collaborating with me on pieces that include leather and metal! Thanks hon!

Please process your payment at time of purchase. Your item will not ship until payment is received.
Shipping is generally USPS first class mail and the cost is typically $7.15 for the smallest box. If you purchase more than one item and it fits within the same box, USPS does not add additional cost to you for the shipping even with the added weight. Your order will be shipped within 1-3 business days.

Other forms of shipping expenses like insurance over $50.00 and registered mail can be offered at an additional fee. It would be my suggestion to add additional insurance if your jewelry cost is over $50.00. Shipping upgrades are only available for those customers with a PayPal account.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding insurance, upgrades, or any other shipping questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am now taking custom orders on certain pieces of jewelry. Look at the bangle bracelets where I give you choices of materials, finishes and sizes to fit your style, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you. Rings will now be included in custom orders. They are tricky so do your best at sizing your finger the best you can.
