Stuff On Strings originally opened in the fall of 2005. After a long hiatus from selling/creating, my creative urges came back and so did Stuff On Strings. Here you will find handmade jewelry as well as neat wearable vintage jewelry I have picked up over the years while searching for vintage components to use in my designs.

I like color and mixing metals. I like using vintage components like beads, findings and chain. I like the stories of who owned it before and what it has seen over the years in the nicks and scuffs and little imperfections.

With that said, pieces containing vintage parts should be expected to show some wear or other age-related characteristics.

A lot of my pieces are one-of-a-kind. This is not totally on purpose...I just have the attention span of a drunk ferret and bore easily. If you see something you like that has sold, let me know and I will see if I can make another one.

All of my items are intended for adult use only.

I do have a full-time job and work afternoon/nights. If I don't reply right away, please do not worry. I respond to all contact within 24 hours.

Become a fan on Facebook for previews, specials and random babblings about jewelry-making. Plus photos of said cats and dignified bunny.

Finally, enjoy browsing! Ask questions. I like questions. Seriously.

Please ask any questions before purchasing and I will happily answer.

Once the package leaves my hands, I have no control over what horrors it may encounter in the postal system. However, I will gladly fix the damage to any handmade piece if you return the item to me within 10 days of receipt.

Additional policies and FAQs
I live with cats and bunnies. They have yet to master the art of beading or even packing, but hair gets around, regardless. Until my boyfriend lets me shave them (kidding! kidding!), those of you with severe allergies may want to avoid me or give me a heads-up so even more extra precautions can be taken. My house is non-smoking.
