I began making jewelry when I was 4 years old beside my mother and grandmother. We all grow up into what we know. Of all the things my mother and grandmother knew, I never thought I would pick this path. Well, that was long, long ago, rest both of their loving, creative souls.
Jewelry is an extremely personal and emotional thing. If you compliment someone on their jewelry, more times than not, They will tell you where/who they bought it from, who gave it to them – when and for what occasion; how much they love it and why!! Generally, they will not give you facts about their jewelry, like it’s amethyst and gold per se…
Now I have a pleasant studio with windows to my gardens, and I make jewelry! That’s what I do. Women say my jewelry makes them feel beautiful. This is the reason I make jewelry. I hope this expression shows in every piece I make, adding some small piece of beauty and joy to our wonderful, fascinating world.
All earrings have interchangeable wires per your requested style and metal; lever back, french hook, post, and sometimes clips – platinum, gold, gold filled or plated, sterling silver, niobium, copper, or surgical steel.
Additionally, I take custom orders for special occasions (brides and wedding parties, special gifts and holidays etc.) or any occasion. It is especially enjoyable for me to make jewelry on request.
Besides bead work for over 50 years., I’ve also worked in fine jewelry for 25 years and I’m happy to help you design your custom fine jewelry as well.
