I started making jewelry 8 years ago. People always told me to start a shop but I never did. As I have gone through my life so far, when the time is right for something, I just know. So about a month ago my husband and I made the decision for me to work less and be home with my 2 youngest children more. I know most people think they would love to stay at home, but it has been a very hard adjustment for me. I like to be busy, and I am very independent. So this change in my life is what prompted me to finally start selling my jewelry. This photo here is my “Jewelry Making Station”. I love this space, and I love every piece I make. One of my favorite things to do is find a box of old broken jewelry and take it all apart so I can redesign and recreate a new piece with old. I just started working more with copper wire and sheets which is very rewarding to make, because at the end you know you made the entire thing from scratch. I also work some with clay to create beads or pendants of my own. The art of jewelry making is my long standing favorite hobby. I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.

Frequently asked questions
How do I clean copper
Copper is a reactive metal, meaning that it can darken when exposed to air or water. This patina is attractive, but if you prefer the metal's bright shine try this.
Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle salt over the lemon half. Cornstarch and baking soda can be added to the mixture for a deeper cleaning. Rinse and dry with a cotton cloth.
How to make cheap jewelry look like new again.
Any jewelry that is not real gold or silver can be brought back to new by simply cleaning it with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Any toothpaste will do. Make sure to rinse and dry it well right away.
