The main reason I started making jewelry a few years ago (before I started my Etsy shop) was because I could picture the jewelry I wanted that was my style but couldn’t find it in physical shops or online. I experimented with several different methods, designs, materials, suppliers, etc and through lots of trial and error and google, was able to design and create the pieces I was looking for. While my work needs a lot of practice and work, it makes me happy to be able to turn my vision into an actual product.

Here are a few new earrings I’ve been experimenting with – my first experiment with wire hoop earrings. The top pair has details of tiny gold geometric seed beads. The bottom pictures are similar design with a leftover herkimer diamond (from a necklace I made) paired with the same gold seed beads as the top pair of earrings. I’m pleasantly surprised with how they turned out and that all my tinkering and manipulating the wire turned out ok 😉

New Shop Items

A long time in coming, but there are new shop items! Last year we were so busy packing, unpacking and moving that I felt like I barely had time to devote to my shop outside of ‘Buy 1, give 1‘. It’s been a fun hobby for me to learn new skills and have the opportunity to create. A few new necklaces in the shop:


‘HOPE’ Morse code necklace


Cactus necklace


Thistle necklace
