About PrairieZenStudios

On Etsy since 2010

We started Prairie Star Jewels in 2010 thinking we could slowly build up business and have retirement income in the future.

I have always been crafty, doing everything from decopage, tole painting, frame making and many others. Making jewelry though, gives me peace. I don't always know what I am making when I start. It just develops. Sometimes when I get finished the piece gets torn apart and other times I just love it.

We have since added a supply shop (
The businesses keep us afloat and my husband now manages the business. He keeps the books, orders items, inventory control, special orders and customer service. I can see it would be a great retirement job.

Our dog Gracie also thinks she is a part of the business. If we tell her we need to go to the studio and get orders ready she is right there. Of course it means a car ride to the post office for her!

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    Do what you love, love what you do! That is my motto. I have always been a crafty person thanks to my parents. My dad was a master woodworker. Mom was a fabulous quilter amongst other things. She encouraged creativeness.

  • Gary Williams

    Owner, Designer, Shipper

    Gary is in charge of everything to do with math, figuring out when to order supplies, special orders, inventory control, customer service and more.

  • Gracie

    The Boss, Best Dog

    Gracie is our 8 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She watches us pack orders so we don't make mistakes and rides along to the post office to make sure we don't miss anything.
