About UsHi, welcome to my shop. Come in and browse. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
I started by creating some jewelry pieces for family, friends and myself. Once I started, that was it. I just got so into it that I couldn't stop. I find it so rewarding to create a beautiful design and imagine someone else loving it and wearing it.
My maiden name "Kaminski" translates to Daughter of Stone. So, it's no wonder, ( or coincidence?), that I gravitated to creating with stone. And, my fiancé is also involved in creating with stone. He is a Lithic Technologist who researches stone tool making and replicates stone spearheads, knives, axes etc. Rather than a match made in heaven, a match made in Stone!! ;-)
Handcrafting jewelry is something I love to do using the beautiful stones that mother earth gives us, such as Turquoise, Lapis, Jasper, Agate, Jade, Onyx, to name a few. Also, I use the materials given to us by the sea; Shells, Coral, Pearls and more. Some fine crystals and handmade lampwork beads, or perhaps rustic Krobo beads made of crushed glass by natives in Africa are also included in my designs. You'll not find any plastic components in any of my designs.
A lot of thought goes into every piece and it could take hours to come to a final design. I lay out the components, take some items out, add other items and continue until I get the "Yes, that's it, I love it". Truly, every piece is made with love.
The designs are more on the classy side, eye catching but not outrageous. I feel jewelry should be unique, and with artisan handcrafted jewelry you are investing in a unique quality design. The jewelry pictured is the piece you will receive.
I try to make a variety of styles that appeal to many different people. The experts say that that is a mistake, and I should know my target audience and reach out to certain customers. I have a difficult time doing that. I personally like many styles of jewelry and I think others do too. The style you happen to wear depends on the mood you are in or the occasion. You may be going out on a date and want that feminine romantic look or perhaps that bold sensual look. Perhaps you are going to the beach and want a piece of jewelry that reflects the ocean, beach or shells. Or, you may simply want your jewelry accessory to compliment a particular outfit. I also try to design pieces in various price ranges, so that everyone can afford a handcrafted piece of jewelry. A lower price does not mean lower quality. Precious metals are priced higher, that is true. But, today's Pewter components, for instance, are lead free and are a zinc alloy material. Components made from this material are really very pretty and very closely resemble silver, though priced much lower. Brass and Copper are very popular nowadays not only because of their lower prices, but because the beauty of these metals are more appreciated.
I enjoy and love handcrafting jewelry and hope that love is reflected in my designs.

and remember how kind you were to remake it for me. (purchased Turquoise, Spiny Oyster and Coral Necklace and I redesigned her bracelet and earrings to match the necklace)
God Bless you JoAnn and your family. I wish you much success in your
business. Your jewelry is truly lovely, each piece a work of art.
Dear Ms. Williams,
The jewelry arrived yesterday, and everything is beautiful! I am truly delighted with the pieces and look forward to the wearing them (and to compliments I will get!) :) What really caught my eye was the necklace with the gold lava discs - they are beautiful and unique. I then looked at other pieces, and was impressed with the use of natural materials and stone. (Three cheers for something NOT made of plastic beads!) In each necklace that I purchased, the combination of color, texture and size for each component creates a stunning and eye-catching piece.
Thank you so much,
Hi, Jo Ann,
Just wanted you to know that my friend loved this pendant! Too bad for me.
I'll be back to shop your creations soon.
Thanks so much for a wonderful shopping experience!

I just checked the mail and the necklace has arrived. It is so much more than I imagined. The pearls really are silvery and so precious looking. The length for this necklace is very good also. Thank you so much for putting this together for me. I'm very, very pleased with this transaction.
I know we'll be doing more business in the future,

I can't say it enough; I am so pleased with how the bracelet and earrings turned out! The earrings are killer with that extra piece of pewter in them. I'd be crazy not to consider you doing a matching necklace but I haven't put much thought towards that yet; however, I think I'll start.
(Rose and White Swarovski Pearls with Silver Pewter beads and clasp. Also purchased custom order matching necklace)
Another beautiful set! This is perfect and I love the toggles. They look just right with the links. Thank you.
