Vicki was a joy to work with on this custom necklace for a little dancer in my life! The necklace shipped fast and is very cute and lightweight: perfect for a little one. The glow-in-the-dark beads are awesome!

My daughter loved this bracelet! One of the things I like about Vicki's charm bracelets is their durability. Charms are always securely attached, and the combination of charms is fun and never fails to elicit compliments!

About

One-of-a-kind jewelry charm bracelets, necklaces, earrings, some with glow in the dark glass beads to bring out the kid in all of us.

A number of years ago, my best friend gave me a book entitled, My Mother's Charm Bracelet and it reawakened in me the love I had collecting charms in the 1960s as a teenager. Each one represented something special in my life. In looking for and creating charm bracelets for gifts, I learned a great deal about the history of charms and found that themed charm bracelets were my forte. I wasn't sure if I could make them, but I set about learning how. A quote from Helen Keller was my inspiration and strength, "Begin to do what you think you can not do". That was the origin of my jewelry.

Charm bracelets can represent a lifetime of collecting. In the 1940s a friendship bracelet would be created where one friend would start the bracelet and others would add a sterling puffy heart and have initials or a name engraved on the back. I love this and began one for a family member many years ago. It is filling up quite nicely. Also, in the 1800s, coins would be made into love tokens and were engraved with pictures, names initials or scenes.

I have a special love of cats and have a handsome feline named Kori, who has a following on Facebook as Sylvester the Tuxedo Cat. We lost Sylvester in 2013 and Kori has taken up his work to make this a better world, one purr at a time. I am an avid wildlife lover as well. Many of my jewelry pieces and my artwork reflect that love. The colors in nature, whether water, sand or a forest nestled by a lake are my sources of inspiration. I absolutely love color.

I sold my first painting to a children's specialty store 36 years ago. I have sold them in stores in Colombia when I lived there in the 1970s. In the 1980s I designed for Kappie Originals Ltd., a crewel and needlepoint designer and store and some of my designs made it into The Stitchery catalogue as a result.

I have studied at the School of Visual Arts in NY. I have always loved to draw and Walt Disney was my inspiration. My artwork and jewelry always have a whimsical element to them as a result.

I do my best to work mostly with Etsy shops to buy charms and beads which I use in my work. Occasionally, I go to Hawaii, Canada or other countries to buy premade charms, beads and cords. I also use upcycled items, vintage charms and do sell vintage pieces as well.

    I am an artist and jewelry designer. I love working with glass beads, especially lampwork, and have a serious love for charms, new and vintage. I love color and glow in the dark glass which adds a touch of magic to many pieces I make.
