Ingrid did a wonderful job with these bracelets for our Marine spouses stationed around the globe. Quality service, fast delivery and attention to detail. Thank you so much!

Absolutely love these customized bracelets! Ordered 18 of them for my team in remembrance of our volleyball coach and received them very quickly and they are perfect. The packaging came in our college colors which was an amazing surprise to me! The bracelets are well made, adjust easily, and fit the wrist well. Highly recommend.

I ran my first marathon,26.2 miles,in memory of my brother, Capt David Jp Thompson.
This small memory bracelet is worn my my brother's memory bracelet and after wearing it for a while I will leave at his grave site in Arlington.
This is perfect. It fits well. It reminds me of what I achieved. I bought extras to pass on to my running friends. What i like best is its simplicity.

I love how I have an idea and Ingrid makes it turn out even better than I imagined. She is detailed oriented and gets things to me even though I often request them last minute. Giving something personal is so meaningful, especially when it is made by someone I know.

This is a birthday gift for my daughter who attended UNC Wilmington, and fell in love with the community and the beach there. This is a perfect piece to keep her time there close to her heart. This necklace is beautifully made and the shop is wonderful to work with. This is actually the second item I have purchased from this store; my first was a necklace with the ceiling of UNC Chapel Hills bell tower, where my son asked the love of his life to marry him. That piece was a gift for my now daughter, who I hope will cherish that memory with the help of a beautiful necklace. So, it does go without saying, I will be shopping at this store again, this time for me!
( I will add photos later, as I have not seen the UNC Chapel Hill item, and have not given the gift to my daughter from Wilmington.)

I received my necklaces wrapped with beautiful detail and care. Even though I am giving them as gifts, what a joy to open each. A true artist each one was created with love and care. : )

I love how I can throw out a few ideas in my mind and Ingrid makes it happen. People always comment on my necklaces when I wear them and they are all so unique. Being able to personalize pieces for my friends and my team makes me feel like I'm giving something from the heart. I will always come here for my personalized gifts. Thank you for bringing my ideas to life!

I had a special request and couldn't be happier with the finished design. Ingrid took what I wanted and made it even better. Received the bracelet very fast and quality was fantastic.
Once upon a time in an artist's mind...
Once upon a time in an artist's mind - my mind -
I saw myself years ahead, creating amazing designs, amazing photography, amazing art... amazing anything creative.
I started my career over 20 years ago in graphic design. As cool as that was and is, I have always wanted to be a creator of other things as well. You know, make and sell my stuff for the pure joy of it. A few years ago I discovered photo jewelry and I couldn't help but start playing. I added my photos to the pendants, then other people started asking me to put their photos in pendants, and so-on and so-forth. Then came Etsy where I discovered I could actually sell my pendants for a small profit and others could enjoy them on a grand scale. Here in my shop, you'll see some of my photography and some other photos and graphics that I have fallen in love with and given permission to put in pendants.
Last year I started taking classes at a local bead shop (which is so sadly going out of business) where I learned to stamp messages on metal. I am so much enjoying doing this that I've had many custom orders and hope to keep having them.
And what you won't see in this shop is my fine art - my pet portraits. I've been a pet portrait artist for years. I started with pencil and pastel but then switched over to a more whimsical style with pen and ink (some digital). You know how one thing leads to another, so those drawings turned in to stationery - note pads, note cards and prints. They are super fun and I hope you will take a look at them when you have some time. That shop is www.LineArtPrints.etsy.com.
That's my story - so far. I know there is more on the way and it is already there in my future. I just have to wait for it. Then I'll share it with you.
Thank you a million for reading my story. You're great for it.
