Announcement   **Huge markdown on all my pieces that you see in the shop. I'm working new pieces and need to make room! Everything has been marked down even the items that aren't in the SALE section.**

Welcome to Unique Manning Designs where my art consists of my desire to work with gemstones and crystals and other materials to create the jewelry you see in my Etsy shop.

Throughout the years I have learned many different styles of designing jewelry. I have added my own twist to each of the styles I’ve learned. There’s been many wonderful people in my life that have influenced my desire to make all the styles I enjoy creating and sharing with others.

As with any art you improve on what you’ve learned and sometimes you are led down slightly different paths with your creativity, as I seem to be doing. Gemstones, Crystals and other materials have been a part of my life since I was a child and continue to be a part of my life.

I love the casual everyday bracelet, earrings and necklaces to the more elaborate fancy bracelets with crystals. I love having a collection of both styles in my Jewelry collection and shop. Do you ever have those days where you want to wear something more fancy even though you know your staying home for the day? I do this a lot. I also have those days where I feel a need for a bit of casual and a touch of sparkle to intermix. You can let your own creativity speak volumes through your jewelry. With all that said I hope you find something that catches your eyes here at Unique Manning Jewelry.

I pride myself on quality workmanship and timely shipping. Any questions about anything please feel free to convo me.

About

Good Friend Inspiring My Craft

It all started about three years ago now when I went to get a hair cut at a local beauty salon. Alea was the first person in a long time to cut my hair the way I liked it; she was very upbeat and friendly. I felt a connection with her that very first day, and that connection soon lead us to the friendship we currently have . Soon enough the whole family was going to Alea for their haircuts and they too fell in love with her. My family and I would follow her where ever she was working so as to not loose her as our stylist and continue our friendship.

One day I was wearing a piece of jewelry that I had bought in a department store and Alea asked me if I had made it. I told her that I didn’t but have always wanted to try the craft. Alea then told me that she makes jewelry and that her mother too has been making and selling it for years. I was excited to hear this and right then we started developing ideas. Later, Alea showed me some some of her mothers pieces for sale at the salon and of course I bought a necklaces that day. After a few weeks of talking with my friend, I found myself browsing a couple local craft stores and started buying beads and other supplies for making jewelry. Alea taught me some techniques for designing and used those techniques to develop my own strategies. In the beginning it was tough, I often reminded myself: "Valerie you can do this, just design what comes to your mind." I still have a few of those early day pieces and I take them out every now and again to compare them to my current designs. I am always surprised at how far I’ve come and all the things I have yet to explore.

So thank you to my dear friend, Alea, who is always inspiring me and will continue to have a special place in my heart along side the necklace I bought that notable day at the salon.

WELCOME
◆ Welcome to Unique Manning Jewelry on Etsy. I’m very pleased you have stopped in. I will do my best to keep my policy page short; I would hate to bore a potential customer. I guess you could say I have always loved stones and beads. I remember going to the flea markets with my parents and begging to get a bag of stones, or even that fake gold, which was fun stuff. I did not start making jewelry until a good friend started doing my hair and I noticed jewelry for sale next to her station and asked who made it and she said, “I did”, or her mother had made the jewelry. I bought some pieces from her and I guess you could say the rest is history. I have progressed from trying my hand at simple pieces like earrings and I mean simple designs to now challenging myself to really show what I can do. I love designing and making my own jewelry and I want to share that love around the world.
