Announcement   I love working with freeform gemstones, fossils and vintage materials. They give individuality and personality to every piece.

If you like what you see but the color or metal doesn't suit, contact me. I normally have more supplies and I can always make something for you, but everything I make will be one of a kind. Even my trees vary by their nature!

Shipped on time, gift wrapped and everything. I'll let my girlfriend say the rest: "This is really the best present I've ever gotten. It's such a beautiful piece and the wire work is absolutely amazing." There ya go.

About

Sparkle and creativity with a side of history and science.

I've always liked to make things.

The Miscellany in my shop title comes from the fact that I don't just make jewelry, I make a miscellany of crafts-I also sew and make OOAK art dolls. (And the occasional quilt and magic wand.)

Likewise I've always loved jewelry, as a child I was taken to antique shows very often, to entertain me my parents would have me practice my counting on amethyst gemstones.

In college a friend of mine was a beader and very knowledgeable about gemstones. I loved all the stones, but the beading didn't appeal. I wanted to create my own bezels that would set off the stones. I fell into wirework and never got out!

    I'm the designer and creator. I have a BA in History and I work in a library. So my inspirations are myriad. I love playing with shapes and textures that feel contemporary but evoke the past and carry a bit of wonder about the natural world.

Thanks for visiting my shop!

All of my pieces are handmade, so no two will be exactly alike. I have certain styles and types of gems I like to work with, so they may have cousins, but there won't be any twins. Even my trees are all different, as trees in a forest are!

Regarding allergies and my fiber pieces, they are all made in a smoke free home, but I do have a pet rabbit.

A note on colors:

I do my best to take several photographs with slightly different lighting to try to capture the true colors and beauty of the materials I use. I can't guarantee the accuracy of the colors variation in computer monitors.
