Expressed Style for the Individual

The Occasional Embellishment offers a diverse selection of quality, unique handcrafted accessories to men and women who are seeking to develop and express their individual sense of style.

In the past, I concentrated on one-of-a-kind creations inspired by the my favorite colors, textures, shapes and materials.
But as I evolve as a designer and hone my voice as an artist, I work to refine The Occasional Embellishment brand by offering more stylized collections, building a base of customers for commissioned designs, and eventually expanding sales to retail locations.

By day, I work for a local government agency in my hometown, where I'm able to give back to my community and do work that matters. Meanwhile, I'm able to use the marketing skills I learned in college and in my career to grow my business venture and do work that makes the world more beautiful.

Everything I make is one-of-a-kind, inspired by the seasons, sentiments and sensations I experience everyday.

    I'm a self-taught jewelry artisan, versed in a variety of techniques. I began selling my jewelry to fund my beading addiction, but now enjoy being a entrepreneur. As a way of life I seek out new experiences and new forms of personal expression!

Thank you for shopping with The Occasional Embellishment!

Here you'll find quality artisan jewelry for men and women, as well as a variety of other accessories. Most of my creations are made with beads. I enjoy working with a variety of materials, including gemstones, crystals, glass, plastic, wood, bone, horn, seeds, and metal beads. I also incorporate other materials into my creations, such as wire, leather, hemp, cotton, and more...

All of my merchandise is designed and personally handcrafted by me, and everything I make is one-of-a-kind or limited edition. Let me know if you would like to commission an original design. I'll create something special designed with you in mind!

All purchases shipped within the state of Florida will be subject to 6% sales tax (6.5% in Palm Beach County).

I take PayPal, money orders, and personal checks. (Cash is good if you're buying from me in person.) Merchandise is shipped after payment clears.

Please wait for an invoice before making your payment.
All purchases will be shipped within 5 business days after the receipt of payment. Merchandise will be packaged in a zip-lock bag and bubble-wrapped for extra protection.

A combined shipping rate is available for multiple purchases. Just drop me a line and let me know you’re buying more than one item. I’ll wait until you’re done before totaling your invoice. $1.00 for each additional item shipped together.

I recommend Priority Mail for heavy items, because it's quick and a great flat rate value (especially for multiple purchases). Arrival within 2-3 days of shipment (not including Sundays).

I recommend First-Class Mail for most light-weight purchases (i.e., a single pair of simple earrings or bracelet), to keep your costs down. Just keep in mind that it may take a few days to receive your merchandise.


Local friends and family: if you don’t want your merchandise shipped (because you live right around the corner or I’m going to bump into you over the weekend), drop me a line and we’ll arrange a drop-off/pick-up.

Merchandise must be returned in its original condition, or you may not receive full credit.
Additional policies and FAQs
♥ I believe that mass production can devalue a perfectly wonderful piece of jewelry. To that end, everything I make is one-of-a-kind or limited edition. If you need more than one piece, please contact me, and I will design a limited edition piece just for you.

♥ If you would like something custom made, just let me know. I'll work within your budget as much as possible, without compromising on quality or design.

♥ Breathe easy...all of my creations are carefully handcrafted in a pet-free, smoke-free environment!
