Thanks for stopping to see the items in my store. Everything here is created in my home studio. (You will see me call it "Payton-made" here in the store.) Every single piece is made like a small work of art. I couldn't do it any other way. I have termed it "glass-doodling". I don't have a perfect plan when I sit down at my work bench. I don't have a drawing, or a finished product in mind. It just comes out of that place inside of me that never quits spinning. I am often asked if I ever run out of ideas. Are you kidding? I wish I had enough time to let it all come out!

This is why I find special orders a unique and fun challenge. What I like to do is take inspiration from the creative energy behind a request, and craft several theme pieces. The buyer can then choose between the pieces I create, and the remainder will become inventory in my shop. This way we all win. I get new inspiration, the buyer gets to have some say in the product, and the rest of you have more work to choose from!

I will always be 100% upfront about materials in my work. I like to use sterling silver, copper, semi-precious beads, and most of all, glass. Every piece of glass goes through a multi-stage process to get where it is. Many are fired 3, 4, or 5 times. I am a random, scattered, crazy, goofy person. But when it comes to my artwork, I am fanatical about quality, style, and originality.

My customers are very important to me. I will take care of you in every way possible. I know that without you, there is no point. Thank you so much for your time and support. Please, if you feel so inclined, send me a convo. I love feedback, honest critiques, and queries.


As Michael Stipe of REM says, "You are the Everything." I would have a rediculously huge personal collection of jewelry without you to buy it from me. This I take very seriously.

If you are unhappy in any way, we can work it out. It takes a trusting relationship. I will trust you, and you can read more about the specifics on the Refunds and Exchanges page.
