My Friend & I Jewelry.....designed and handcrafted by two gals who share a precious friendship. 💜

We have been friends for years. We love to get together to gab, laugh, solve the problems of the world, talk about our grandkids, and shop for beads to turn them into awesome jewelry.

Linda started making jewelry first - out of desperation to have something to wear with a dress for her daughter's wedding. She couldn't find any ready-made jewelry that she liked, so having always been an artist she decided to make her own. She visited a local bead shop, found beautiful beads, took a lesson, and ended up with the perfect jewelry for her dress. And....she found her new creative passion.
Later, during a weekend at the Oregon Coast (one of our favorite places!) we played with some beads Linda had brought along. We had a great time, made some cool things, and Debbie discovered a new passion too.

Over time we made lots of jewelry that we gave as gifts, then friends started asking to buy our pieces. It was only natural then, that "My Friend & I Jewelry" came to be.

All of our pieces are designed and handmade by us individually in our home studios. Most of our pieces are one-of-a-kind. We also enjoy the challenge of custom work....like taking your outdated Aunt Ida's necklace and re-working it into an updated piece that you'll want to wear and will always remind you of your sweet auntie. Or, working with you to create a special piece for an important event in your life.

We value beauty, quality, details, and only make things we would be proud to wear ourselves. You can feel confident that your My Friend & I purchase will be a lasting treasure.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to get to know us. We hope you'll find something you love and become a part of our My Friend & I family. 💜

    I love nature and all things funky, boho, and artsy. I’ve loved designing and making things since I was a child. Simple style appeals to me too, so I guess that's why I create such a wide range of pieces. I hope you find a piece you love. 💕

JEWELRY CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Wearing Your Jewelry:
Hair spray and perfume can cause jewelry to become dull. Make sure to apply them BEFORE putting on your jewelry. Remove rings prior to applying hand lotion, and avoid harsh soaps. Another good practice is to wipe your jewelry with a damp cloth after wearing to remove any oils and perspiration. Make sure it is dry before you put it away.

Storing Your Jewelry:
To prevent tarnish, an inexpensive storage solution is to keep your pieces in air tight plastic bags (think zip-lock) - It really works! Moisture is the cause of tarnish so, again, only store items that are entirely dry.

Cleaning Your Jewelry:
If you do get some tarnish, polish metals with a soft cotton or chemically treated cloth that is made for that purpose. Avoid using paper towels or tissues as they can scratch the metal.
Gemstones and crystals can be immersed in warm soapy water and dried with a soft cotton cloth. Avoid chlorine, salt water, abrasives and tarnish cloths or dips. Make sure they are dry before storing them.
Pearls, coral and other porous stones should be kept away from dirty water and oils to avoid discoloration. Never clean pearls with chemicals, jewelry cleaners or jewelry cloths. Wash them with warm soapy water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth, and allow them to air dry completely prior to storing them.
