I realized that I needed a creative outlet and that I could learn to make jewelry!

I decided in one quick decision that I wanted to learn how to make jewelry and sell it too! I set out on this venture in making jewelry in 2006. I took a class at our local Michaels store, then taught myself the rest. I have been designing and making jewelry ever since.

With the exception of bookkeeping, I love every aspect of making jewelry. I am mostly inspired by the true colors we find in nature, especially the cool color combinations that occur naturally. I am the sole worker in my studio. I do it all!

My work has been published in various issues of Stringing Magazine and Bead Style Magazine.

I want you to be pleased with your purchase. If for any reason you are not, please contact me. If you wish to return an item, the original shipping fees and return shipping costs are not refundable.
I would appreciate payment at the time of purchase. If I don't receive it within 72 hours of submitting your order, I will need to cancel the sale. It is my hope that we can work together to achieve a smooth sale.

I accept PayPal. If you are already an established local customer of mine, I will be happy to discuss other methods of payment including check or cash.

To Virginia customers: please anticipate that you will be charged 5.3% sales tax. PayPal will automatically add the tax to your total.
I will wait to receive confirmation of your payment before I ship your order.

I ship using USPS First Class. You can expect your shipment to arrive inside a bubble mailer. The individual pieces of jewelry will be packaged inside a box in the mailer.

For my local customers, I am happy to hand-deliver items to you. Please contact me to schedule a delivery and for a coupon code that will deduct the cost of shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs

I will do my best to accurately represent the jewelry pictured. Be certain to take advantage of the numerous photographs posted for each listing. Also please take a careful look at the measurements I provide. Earrings are measured from the top of the ear wire. Necklaces are measured without the extension. If an extension is available, the additional length is noted. Take particular care to notice the length of bracelets to make sure that the item will be a good fit for you.


Thanks so much for your time and interest. I appreciate your business! I am honored that you have chosen to accent your wardrobe with an Artful Accents creation!
