The front of my my latest statement piece. The tiny owl is 7 separate pieces. I hand made each individual leaf with my fingers and a scalpel. I love hiding treasures so when you lift the top, there is a tiny hand sculpted Lady Bug in the left corner among the flowers. The stone is beautiful on the back so I made sure and exposed the back of the stone. This is only the third hinged piece I've done but I'm hook so stay tuned for more hinged works of wearable art.
When I first started making jewelry I did only beading. In 2008 I made beautiful but very different necklace with leather strands, gemstone beads and sterling silver beads. All the beads made by someone else. Fast forward to 2018 when I stumbled upon the picture of that necklace. I instantly decided to make another one but with the sterling silver beads and silver embellishments being made by me by hand.
A beautiful adjustable thumb ring or any finger for a size 8.5-9.5
I love making unusual earrings that really stand out. I also handcraft the earring hooks. Many of my earrings offered for sale have the choice of surgical steel earrings hooks for no additional cost.
A custom piece I created for a customer based on their younger daughter's painting
My niece was married St Patrick's Day 2018 and her theme was love birds and colors green. I surprised her by making her this one-of-a-kind bracelet for her "something new".
