Pearl dreaming...

Simply Adorned has emerged out of my lifetime love of pearls and finally finding my creative artistic niche. My first pearls I received as a child, brought home by my parents from Hawaii, little rice freshwater pearls. They were so special to me and I still have them to this day. My shop is really a one woman production. I purchase fantastic unusual pearls, gemstones, findings and raw materials from all over the world. Then I design, create, photograph, write descriptions and sell on Etsy all over the world. Though I wish I could say I live in an exotic location, exotic as some of the locations my pearls are from, I do not. I do, however, live in one of the most beautiful areas of Canada. My studio is located in my home on the east coast of Canada, along the Atlantic Ocean. When you purchase jewelry from me, at Simply Adorned, you are buying a unique handcrafted piece, handmade by me, most often one of a kind.
I am now making most of my earring hooks and clasps, it is gratifying to take a piece of wire, bend it, hammer it, and tumble it (in a tumbler made by my spouse, thank you very much). Pearls, in various sizes and shapes, the more irregular the better, are found in abundance in my shop. I love to combine them with gemstones, to get that fabulous mix of luminous shine and sparkle.
I do hand knotting with power pro, beaded’s secret or silk, but my favourite is wire wrapping - linking gems and pearls together - from the earth and the sea.
I do take custom orders for weddings, individual pieces or sets.

A bit about me....
I grew up on a hobby farm, nestled at the foot of a mountain in British Columbia, surrounded by prairies, mountains, streams, tall trees and plenty of nature. Many of my family members are painters, weavers, sewers, needleworkers. No other jewellers, but my great great grandfather and his brothers had a gold mine in Dawson City. I grew up looking a jewelry pieces made from gold mined in their mine.
I have sewn since I was a teenager, but found my true love in jewelry design and creation about 8 years ago. I am a full-time health professional by day, my dream is to retire and devote more time to creating beautiful pieces of wearable art.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Details of length, sizes of pearls and gemstones are on each listing. But if you have a question or need to see the piece on a model/person, please let me know.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece is placed in a jewelry box for travel security and gift giving. I am happy to gift wrap, add a card and send to a different address, please let me know.

Custom and personalized orders

I love working with clients to create a personalized custom piece, please contact me to create your one of a kind design.

Care instructions

Pearls are resilient and meant to be worn, but they are also delicate and require proper care. Pearls are organic gemstones that are vulnerable to acid, alkaline and extremes of humidity. To preserve your pearls' radiance, avoid letting them come into contact with cosmetics, hair spray, or perfume. Always put on your jewelry as a final touch, after applying make-up and styling hair. The pearl's luster can also be harmed by perspiration. To prevent this, before returning your pearls to the jewelry box, wipe them gently with a soft
cloth.

Care instructions continued

Pearls are exceptionally cohesive and shock-resistant, but may be scratched by contact with sharp objects or other gemstones. To prevent tangles and scratches, fasten clasps and pins, then lay each item out separately in a compartmentalized jewelry box. When carrying jewelry, use a protective jewelry pouch. Leaving pearl jewelry in a security box for long periods may cause pearls to dehydrate, so enjoy them frequently. There is a saying that "pearls want to be worn”.
