I feel like I just received something that should have been AT LEAST $150! Thank goodness it wasn't, or I wouldn't be able to continue to the amazing collection that this piece will be starting! I have just a very few favorite jewelry shops on etsy, from whom I have many pieces, I am SO thrilled to have found a new favorite! I knew this piece was special when I purchased it, but it's beauty and quality is even greater than I was anticipating! Heirloom quality!

Treasures in Beads and Wire

I sell my designs at live events and art shows, in retail outlets, and on Etsy . I do everything in my power to create value. I rely completely on my customers to let me know how I can give you a "5 STAR" experience, so your satisfaction is top priority. No one cares more about the customer experience than someone who has sacrificed to bring products to market. Believe me, when an artist puts that much of themselves into an artistic piece, they CARE about what happens to it. They want it to go to someone who is thrilled to have it. So please feel free to contact me at any point. I truly am a one person, home based business, so from the creation of the product, to the packaging and shipping, I want to know how to make your purchase the best it can be.

If you are looking for unique things with genuine handmade artistic value, you're in the right place. I make each item one at a time, by myself, and everything you see is ready to ship, usually within 24 hours of the day you make your purchase. There is no warehouse, no fulfillment center, just a hard working artist making a living doing what I love to do.

    I spent 25 years in healthcare, raised two kids as a single parent, married again in 2008, and then retired from nursing in 2012. I've been making wire art jewelry for over 10 years, and have been selling it for almost that long. I love what I do.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders based on another artist's design are NOT accepted, but I am happy to customize items I have designed and created, such as chain length or necklace length, ring size, length of bracelets, at no extra cost. I will also change ear wire types on earrings, if readily available, with purchase of custom earring findings listed in my shop. Customization requiring special items not readily available, or custom orders created from your own design will require extra time, and thus requires an extra fee.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I package for safe shipping at the best value to you, the customer. If a jewelry store quality gift box is desired, upgraded packaging is available at an extra cost.

Care instructions

Unless otherwise specified, the wires I use are specially treated with lacquer coatings that are anti tarnish. Chain, charms and other metal elements are not always conducive to lacquer coating, so protection from oxidation is recommended. Storing jewelry in air tight zip lock bags will slow oxidation. When polishing is desired, careful rubbing with a clean, soft cloth will remove most oxidation.

Many of my designs are delicate. Continuous wear is not recommended. Avoid wearing wire jewelry with sweaters or other fabrics with a loose weave to prevent snagging.

Can I request expedited processing?

The processing time estimate is a longest case scenario. Most orders are processed and shipped the same day. Because I am a one-person business, there are rare occasions when I cannot process all orders on the same day. However, if you bring to my attention your special circumstances, I will do my best to meet your specific needs. Actual shipping time depends completely on the postal service, and once out of my hands, shipping time is out of my control.
