I appreciated most the individual thought and effort put into creating this piece specifically for the person I gifted this to! The necklace was very well done.

I have been a collector and crafter since I was a young child and I'm still just as curious and adventurous. I live for the thrill of discovering new materials, techniques and inspiration.

My custom jewelry designs incorporate the highest quality stones, Swarovski crystals, Czech and Indian glass, Bali and American made silver. Other materials used are antique silver, gold, brass or pewter findings, and hand carved wood or shell components. For non-knotted items, I use 49 strand Beadalon exclusively. That is 49 strands of super strong stainless steel wrapped very tightly into an .015" diameter. It's known in the biz as the "Cadillac of stringing material".

I donate 10% of every sale to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization which operates a limited intake No Kill shelter and foster program tending to the physical and emotional needs of homeless animals. Find out more here:
