Announcement    Those of you who know me, know that I'm out camping - instead of gearing up for local events. Ahhh 2020, you haven't kept me from venturing forth into the great outdoors. However, LibertyOriginals does still have a great selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry to show you. If only product photography was my jam. Hope to see you again in and around Austin someday in the near future!! Check my website @libertyoriginals.com and my LibertyOriginals facebook page for a glimpse of past creations.

LibertyOriginals is mixed media jewelry. Leather, stones, pearls, gems, artisan lampwork are all favorites along with sterling silver (.925) or in some pieces Fine Silver (.95 - .99).

I adore creating necklaces - up front & center! You'll find earrings & bracelets too - or they may be created to coordinate your look. Pieces may be classic and simple, or bold and colorful, others are organic, earthy, for the natural woman in you. Favorite designs combine gems, stones, pearls, with gorgeous one-of-a-kind artisan lampwork beads. I hope you'll find a little somethin' special...

Fine Print that matters. Please read my shop policies for your assurance of quality and integrity:-)

Proud member of ATXartisans and nation-wide talented IndieArtisans. Pearls and other seaworthy creations are featured in BoardwalkArtisans. Long time member of SRAJD, member #641.

A little somethin' special

Those of you who know me, know that I'm out camping - instead of gearing up for local events. Ahhhh 2020, you haven't kept me from venturing forth outdoors. I do however, still have many unique jewelry pieces to show you. If only product photography was my jam...

Liberty Originals is a namesake for the small rural community of Liberty Hill in the Texas hillcountry. All jewelry is designed and created solely by me in my country home studio. You can expect to receive individualized attention to every detail and service to match from LibertyOriginals. Working with the maker has many advantages that mass production simply cannot offer. The handmade revolution is alive and well!! You're already here! Thank you for joining the fun and supporting very small businesses owned and operated by very real people - like me.

I'm a proud local member of ATXartisans. Austin is a huge part of my life. This country girl gets back into the big town. Austin is the place to be for artists of all kinds.

Other professional memberships:
- IndieArtisans, an online, nationwide cooperative marketing venture for makers.
- BoardwalkArtisans, a market within IndieArtisans featuring my pearl designs.
- SRAJD - long time member of Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designers, an organization formed to raise awareness of the benefits of buying directly from the artist. Member #641

Liberty Originals ~ Original designer jewelry created one at a time and one of a kind.

a bit about my business and my way of thinking...

You'll find mixed media artisan pieces with handcrafted lampwork beads, stones, pearls, gems, leather, sterling, and other unusual combinations for texture and variety.

I believe in building a business relationship based on trust. Service with a smile and workmanship guaranteed.

Here's that fine print that matters: You will NOT find plated metals in my shop - ever. Sometimes I'll use solid copper, maybe even brass occasionally to change things up...but exact metal content will always be described. Here's a couple of fyi's - Tibetan silver is not sterling, neither is German silver. Silver filled is not a solid precious metal. If product descriptions you read elsewhere do not specifically state .925 sterling silver - it's probably not. Fine silver at .95 -.99 silver is higher content than sterling at .925 silver. Shell pearls and swarovski pearls are pretty, but are not genuine pearls. All lampwork used in the creation of Liberty Originals designs are purchased directly from talented glass artists who make them. No mass produced art glass here!! Know before you buy.

Jewelry is a feel good thing, I want you to feel good wearing it. It matters to me:-)

Note: Holidays sometimes get in the way of rapid delivery... Bottom line, it's important to me that your new jewelry is winging it's way to you as quickly as possible and I will make every effort to make that happen!
Additional policies and FAQs
I have an abundance of materials & supplies to create whatever your heart desires. For instance, If there's something you see, but you've been longing for something similar in red - please ask! Earrings seem to be at the end of my to-do list. Coordinating pieces can almost always be created - may not be matchy matchy, but doable.

Thank you for shopping Liberty Originals!
