About Us
I love to make jewelry and I love to wear jewelry. For me it should be affordable, stylishly classic, and still have a bit of a flair. I love to make jewelry for others and it is important to me for you to be happy enough with your purchase to wear it often or give to someone special. So please contact me if you are not happy with your purchase for any reason.

Over the past 25 years I have accumulated a collection of a variety of semi-precious, vintage, antique and unusual beads. I use pearls, semi- precious gemstones, vintage beads and my favorites, Turquoise and African beads. So you may find very different styles in my shop; sometime just classic and sometime with an unexpected mix of beads and styles. I love to follow today's fashion trends and see what today's top designers are offering. Hopefully you will find fashionable and classic pieces for all the days of your life, whether casual, everyday, elegant or very special days, always with a little flair.

A personal observation about semi-precious stones: I use semi-precious stones in most of my designs. In today's market many of the semi-precious stones have been enhanced, dyed or strengthened. The stones are still very beautiful and make very beautiful jewelry. I will do my best to describe the items and the components used in each piece of jewelry.
