Get to Know

So much jewelry is mass-produced with all of it looking very similar. I like to make beautiful, handmade pieces that are one-of-a-kind, so that when women wear my jewelry, or give it as a gift, they can express their individuality and stand out from the crowd.

My items are made with natural materials. Each piece is unique--there's only one like it in the world! Every item in my shop is ready to ship, and most orders go out within 1 to 2 days. I've been selling on Etsy since 2010 with a 5-star rating.

I get ideas by searching pinterest as well as fashion, home furnishing, jewelry and bead catalogues and websites. Using natural gemstones, I create affordable pieces that are suitable for work, or ideal for weddings or perfect for a night out on the town!

Making jewelry is my second profession. My first job is a freelance marketing and advertising copywriter.
