Announcement   T H A N K . Y O U .. for stopping by and ..W E L C O M E.. to my shop.

Everything is handmade by me with great attention to detail and craftsmanship. I have recently found some fantastic Hill Tribe .975 silver beads and they are being incorporated into my latest designs! Also! I'm finding antique Bedouin and Indian silver beads & findings with a great patina and karma!!
My latest purchase of old beads are here! Two strands of ancient, tiny, mostly turquoise and blue glass beads from Mali, West Africa. They are known as Djenne beads. They take my breath away! They are so fine and beautiful!
I also do custom orders. Please email me and give me your ideas and specifications. Custom orders are a fantastic way for you to add a personal touch to the jewelry and take about two weeks to arrive.

WEDDINGS ARE ESPECIALLY WELCOMED AND I WILL WORK WITH YOU ON THE CREATION!

THE MERMAID TEARS (SEA GLASS):
Watch how the sun transforms the gem! Something more alive and radiant than anything you’ve ever seen! See the colors of the sea glass change with the intensity of the light hitting the surface.

THE ANCIENT BEAD:
One of the joys the majority of my jewelry affords is an ancient artifact, with it's patina of age; the link to our ancestry. You will find yourself rubbing the ancient bead between your fingers, wondering who wore this…feel the energy, the karma of what is old!

THE SILVER BEADS AND GEMS:
Hand crafted beads are made with soul and patience. The gems selected for my art are steeped in an old and mystic past.Thai Karen silver beads adorn most of my jewelry the beads are handmade by Karen Hill Tribe of Northern Thailand with a silver content guaranteed to be 92.5% or higher ( often up to 98.5% ). All of the craftmen are highly skilled, making each piece by hand, with engraving done using traditional methods of hand-tooling.

THE MERMAID TEARS (SEA GLASS): Trash to treasure is what they are. Quite a unique phenomenon sea glass is. Whether it is born from man’s early dumping grounds, or after a ship wreck, pulled up many years later from the sea; it is given back to us with more beauty than anything man or naturally made.
Sea glass is found virtually all over the globe, but is becoming scarcer due to the stricter dumping laws and also the replacement of plastic over glass for today’s containers. The sea glass I use to adorn my jewelry has been carefully selected for its shape, clarity, size, and color. Some of my best sea glass are pieces I found myself on local and distant beaches.
Watch how the sun transforms the gem! Something more alive and radiant than anything you’ve ever seen! See the colors of the sea glass change with the intensity of the light hitting the surface. Even artificial light will bring the shard to life! The slightest frosting and dimpling that years of pounded by the sea and sun, only adds to its “personality”
I also buy my surf tumbled glass from highly reputable suppliers. Their hunting grounds are mainly the west coast of America specifically the rugged coast line of Washington State and California. Hawaiian sea glass is also excellent. I have enjoyed many emails and correspondences from my trusted suppliers and look forward to collecting there beautiful shards from the sea.
THE ANCIENT BEAD: Within my creations, you will find echoes of the past… the ancient beads. If only they could tell a tale of owners long since gone--perhaps a story that is Roman, Egyptian, African or possibly Chinese. The first beads must have taken hours to create and been very valuable. The ancient Vikings prized them and would use them as payment for goods and services. The Egyptians drilled Amethyst beads and they were used to ward off evil spirits… perhaps beads were mankind’s first art.
One of the joys my jewelry affords with an ancient artifact, is the patina of age; the link to our ancestry. You will find yourself rubbing the ancient bead between your fingers, wondering who wore this…feel the energy, the karma of what is old!
The Ancient beads I purchase come from reputable suppliers. I trust them to be 100% authentic as sold to me. Their reputation in the jewelry supply industry is excellent.


THE SILVER BEADS AND GEMS: Hand made silver beads make up the majority of the silver findings and focal beads used in my jewelry. They come from Bali, Thailand or Tibet, handmade by skilled silversmiths that have passed down there trade from generation to generation. Hand crafted beads are made with soul and patience.
The gems selected for my art are steeped in an old and mystic past. The Amethyst beads add depth and a bit of mystery to my jewelry. Amethyst is used for inspiration and intuition. It is associated with prosperity and psychic powers. The intense purple color is hard to resist and is linked to spirituality.
From Egyptian times, Garnet has been associated with passion and love. Garnets were also used in necklaces to protect against thieves. Some people believe that garnets help to purify the body and enhance creativity.
Rubies are associated with wealth, joy, sexual energy and power. They are believed to generate passion and assist with spiritual endeavors. At one time, rubies were thought to protect against misfortune, inspire courage and attract life. I use all these gems to contrast my sea glass focal pieces and next to silver or gold they are exquisite.

Additional policies and FAQs
THE SEA GLASS I purchase comes from reputable suppliers, I trust it to be 100% authentic surf tumbled and not man made in a tumbler Some of the pieces come from local and distant beaches hand picked by me and all are drilled by me

THE ANCIENT BEADS I purchase come from reputable suppliers.
I trust them to be authentic as sold to me. I find the suppliers that correspond with me and are passionate about beads tend to be honest and legitimate dealers. I am always on the look out for authentic ancient beads and reputable ancient bead dealers. Beads dating back to before Christ are a bit pricy and I mainly use them in my custom orders. African Trade beads and glass beads from Afghanistan are a mix and not as old and probably come from the post Roman era (after Christ)
OLD or VINTAGE TRADE BEADS, These beads were made in Europe in the 1800's for trade to Native Americans, Africans and other native people.
