Beautiful earrings! Shipped fast and look like the picture. I love them!
What a delight to wear jewelry that is custom made. Just the right length, color and created by a true artist. This set is simple and feminine. Thanks!
Exactly what I ordered. Fun, casual and a perfect design and match. Ramona is a fantastic creator of custom designs. Perfect! Thanks.

The chains are simple, light and lovely. Purchased several pendants and needed additional chains. High quality and beautifully designed. Thanks.
From Brain Maven to Jewelry Maker
I am a transplanted Chicago native. I relocated to California where I met my husband, formed my family, and started a private practice as an educational psychologist.
For many years, I practiced a craft of a different sort - trying to help and understand people, mostly children, who had problems learning. Then, one day, I decided to start making jewelry as a way to reduce stress. My 37 year old daughter developed breast cancer and, over the course of two years, underwent two mastectomies and eight reconstructive surgeries. Today, she is doing well and is in good health but my jewelry making developed into my obsession.
Jewelry design has become a wonderfully fulfilling second career. This time around, I work with colors, textures, tools, and flames. Most of my pieces are OOAK - One of a Kind. When you wear my jewelry you know that you are wearing something that is truly unique.
I hope you will visit my shop often. I design and make new pieces several times a month so there is always something new and exciting waiting for you.

Owner, Designer, Artisan
I design and make jewelry using quality materials such as Swarovski crystals, artisan created lampwork beads, sterling silver, and gemstones. I am a certified SRAJD artisan;when you purchase from me you are buying directly from the designer/maker.
Accepted payment methods

Repeat customers may request free shipping. I also provide free shipping for Breast Cancer Awareness jewelry items. I strive to keep my shipping charges as low as possible, while ensuring that items are securely packaged. All shipping costs include the packaging and USPS fees.
I am happy to gift wrap items and can include a personalized message with your purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I typically do not accept returns for custom pieces once the customer has given final approval. Exceptions to this policy may be made in the case of damages caused during transit. Payment is made in full upon completion of the item and final customer approval. Occasionally, prepayment is required for orders that require me to purchase expensive materials prior to making the custom item.
Additional policies and FAQs
Do you reserve pieces for buyers?
Yes, I will place pieces on reserve for a specific period of time at a buyer's request - usually no longer than three (3) weeks. After that time, I notify the customer that the item will be put back into general sales and I remove the reserved photo from the item.
Do you make adjustments for size on individual pieces?
Yes, I do make adjustments for size on my bracelets and necklaces. However, re-sizing will require adding or removing materials from the item. I will let the customer know, in advance, as to what changes might need to be made. This is a one time free service so please be sure to measure carefully when asking for customization.
Substantial customization/changes usually requires additional costs for labor and materials. I will always provide photographs and costs for your approval prior to listing the item(s) for your purchase.
Do you make clip-on earrings?
I do not make clip-on earrings but am able to change out the ear wires on many of my designs so that I can attach clip-on ear fasteners. Please feel free to ask about any pair you may want to change. There is no charge for this service.
How are your items shipped?
I place each item in a separate cardboard jewelry box and place padding material between the jewelry and the box lid. I tie each box with ribbon, wrap it in bubble wrap and ship in a postal service priority shipment box or padded bubble envelope.
