Peace of Mind Jewelry

Some of the many gemstone bracelets available
 Whether it is Beaded, Beading or Wire-wrapped, when it comes to stones and crystals I love them - and they know it!  They bring me peace of mind by their true nature; and my appreciation and recognition of them amplifies their vibration for you when you add one of my creations to your personal collection.

 No matter what type of jewelry I am making, a good foundation must come first.  I use the highest quality beading wire (Softflex), and sterling silver crimp beads, headpins and ear wires, unless otherwise stated (I  love working in copper and brass metals also).  Then comes the inspiration, in all its variety - and before long my workshop table looks exactly like what it's been through - a design frenzy! All designs are my own, and one of a kind (OOAK).

Although I work primarily with semi-precious stones, I also enjoy doing off-loom seed bead weaving. These are pieces that have my love of sewing in them.  I come from a long line of women who, between four generations on the planet at one time), covered just about every needle art there is.  I think seed-beading brings several of these needle art techniques together, and find it very easy to believe my grandmother and

Wire-wrapping represents the smallest percentage of my 'in-store stock,' primarily due to the fact that each piece is a labor of love.  Sometimes it takes a while for the stone to tell me how it wants to be wrapped.  I have dug a lot of clear quartz crystal in Hot Springs, AR, and enjoy making wraps that are truly unique and 'organic' - each stone, being very different, requires different lines with the wire.  At other times (with both the quartz I have dug and other stones and cabochons in my collection), it will jump right out at me.  That's when I feel my best work occurs!

I also do Custom Jewelry, and greatly enjoy meeting or talking with a client to get a feel for what is desired.  Drop me a line if you have something in mind we could co-create.
