Handmade Artisan Jewelry for the Untamed Spirit!

I've been drawing, designing, crafting and creating since I was a little girl, and I began my journey with designing and creating jewelry as a way to learn a new skill and make gifts for family and friends.

My designs are created from my horses, other animals and nature and become whimsical designs made into 3D jewelry pieces with precious metals. I sometimes incorporate unusual beads and colorful gemstones to add the colors of nature's landscape into my designs. Some pieces include inspirational messages like "Come fly with me", which avid horse lovers can relate to.

I named my shop "Jo Loves Jewelry" after my mom, Jo, who passed away in 2010. My mom was a talented, intelligent, and eclectic woman who loved and collected unusual jewelry pieces. She had a passion for life learning which inspired me to always strive to be better and chase my dreams. My mom and I shared a love and compassion for animals and nature, and because of this, I get a lot of inspiration from nature and the beauty of the great outdoors. I think about her every day and miss her very much.

All items are handmade with love by me. In a world where so much is mass-produced without thought of the process or the person who will wear it, I'm proud to make these items one by one. My materials are also hand-selected and often sourced from recycled items when possible.

I'm very happily married with children, a grandson, and a granddaughter on the way. I live with my husband, and our four-legged friends, and when I'm not creating, I enjoy riding my horse and enjoying time with my family and dogs.

Hi and thanks for stopping by my shop to take a look. I'm constantly working on new ideas, so check back often, or follow me on Facebook and Instagram for updates. @jolovesjewelry

Items are handmade from sterling and fine silver, metal clay, base metals, gemstones, leather, and other treasures. I use recycled silver whenever possible to minimize the impact on the environment. Metal Clay is made from eco-friendly reclaimed metals that are mixed with a binder made of organic materials. Kiln fired pieces become solid metal. For example, Silver metal clay becomes fine [.999] silver, Sterling silver metal clay becomes .925-.960 silver depending on the mix, and bronze metal clay becomes solid bronze.

All of my jewelry is handmade, with loving care and attention to detail from my own designs. Flaws and blemishes are inherently characteristic of handmade jewelry and metal clay. No two pieces are identical, which gives them that one of a kind artisan feel.

Items are made to order, so please contact me for customizations in color, metal, personalization or any other questions.
