jewelry, handmade, gemstones
My parents got me on the road to jewelry designing when I was 10. They gave me one of those little bead kits from a toy store, and I was hooked! Now I have almost 20 years experience in what started as a hobby! I love using real gemstones, pearls, shell, bone, horn, wood, and vintage glass and crystal beads for added interest to each piece. You'll see a variety of metals, such as copper, antiqued copper, gunmetal, antiqued silver and gold, as well as the usual silver and gold metals. Each metal acts as a foundation, or jumping off point for my inspiration of each piece. I love making special jewelry that will stand out, and be your favorite piece in your jewelry box!
