The Original

Rock and Chain is is one of two shops I own on Etsy and is especially close to my heart because it is my original shop. Please visit my other shop

HERE, you will find recycled sterling wax seal jewelry, talisman and meaningful pendants with history, and a huge selection of initial and monogram wax seal stamp typefaces for the perfect gift.
Additionally, a large. popular MENs Jewelry department.

I am also a physical therapist. As a PT, I worked mostly with children with severe neurological issues. It never felt like work because I always received so much more than I gave. And I gave my patients all I could muster.

Several years ago, I was faced with my own health failing. I began making jewelry, which I always done as a hobby, and never even dreamed I could find meaning in it, the way I had in my work as a PT. This is when I opened my first Jewelry shop on Etsy began and studying my (new) trade voraciously.

Well, jump to today. I consider myself blessed and lucky to feel fulfilled while making a living doing something I absolutely love… twice!

Just like finding the perfect gift for someone you love makes you happy. In the same way, I find creating jewelry that my customer falls in love with and feels good wearing very fulfilling.

Each and everything is made by hand, by me alone, in my small home studio, in horse country, rural NJ. I do purchase certain types of clasps, ear wires, gemstones, ribbon, and bulk chain from jewelry supply companies, most from suppliers right here on Etsy. However, when I do, these "findings" are only building blocks in my meticulously handmade jewelry.

I have always been 'crafty" delving into several creative endeavors at a time. I became a true “artisan” when I joined the Etsy community. I am so thankful I found Etsy five years ago, where I have met generous friends with amazing minds and hands. Although virtual, it is a true community, without which I would not be the jewelry designer and maker I am today.

My Etsy team, the JETs, (Jewelry on Etsy Team) is like a family to me. They inspire me to grow as an artist daily. From sellers and customers, I have made many friends for life through Etsy.
