I get so many compliments every time I wear one of her necklaces. I have 3 of them. It is the perfect length, goes with the outfit I bought it for, as well as several others. It arrived on time. I highly recommend this artist!

About

I believe that creativity is the key to happiness!

Every time I make a necklace, I think, "This will be someone’s favorite piece of jewelry for years to come.” When I make a vase, I know that you will see it every day and hope that it brings beauty into your life. When I create, I think differently, combining colors and materials not usually used together.
I believe that jewelry is an expression of the woman. She is creating her look. I am creating something to help her. Because every woman deserves to feel pretty. Every woman needs to have a way to express her individuality. Every woman is beautiful in her own way. It’s OK not to follow the crowd when it comes to fashion, to blaze your own trail.
When I make jewelry, I think outside the box. My ideas are born of the materials and colors at hand. I use my clay, art paper, silk necklaces, and beads to create jewelry that is different, one of a kind, colorful, and unique. I am fulfilled by a day when I have created something beautiful.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

Let me know when you make an order if your purchase is a gift. I will be glad to wrap it and enclose a gift card for you.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders can take about 4 weeks, depending on where I am in the kiln cycle. Custom and personalized orders are not returnable.

Sizing details

I try to choose necklaces that enhance the color or features of each pendant. If you have specific needs, is possible to change the necklace that comes with pendants. For example, it is sometimes easier for older hands to close different types of clasps, or maybe you have a larger body type and would like a longer necklace. All of my necklaces can be removed from the pendants, so you may also use a necklace that you already own.
