Skills and Techniques

I am a trained metalsmith who uses both traditional and modern techniques such as forging, soldering, stone setting, wire wrapping, and hand-knotting. I use high quality gemstones, pearls, and sterling silver to ensure that each piece will stay beautiful for a lifetime. Other materials that I use in my designs include bone, wood, leather, brass, bronze and copper. My favorite technique is enameling and I have just started work on a new line of enameled jewels, so check back for brand new pieces!

Get to Know

I am originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, but have been living in Houston, Texas for most of my adult life. I am a metalsmith and I have been making jewelry for about 20 years. Making gorgeous jewelry is something I am passionate about. I'm a perfectionist so I spend quite a bit of time on each piece, being fussy about every little detail, until I get the design just right. In addition, I use the best quality materials I can find for each creation, from the gemstones, to the metals, to the wire and other findings. Each piece is designed by me and handcrafted by my own two hands with the help of a few traditional tools. I impart a bit of my heart and soul into each piece, paying attention to every little detail, to create beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry that is both a joy to look at and wear. I hope you find something here that speaks to your soul! I try to add new items every week so check back often! I do take custom orders as well, so if you would like specific colors, materials, types of gemstones, etc., just send me a message and we can come up with a design especially for you! I also have a few gemstone beads for sale because I have the beaders disease, which means I have an insatiable need to buy more and more beads. Therefore I am starting to run out of workspace and need to sell some of my excess stock. I don't know that it will do any good though because it will probably only lead to me buying more beads! Please take a while to look around my shop and browse through my designs. If you see something you like, but want different colors or a different clasp or anything different for that matter, please contact me and I can change it to your liking, or create it from scratch just for you. I am very friendly and would love to hear from you! Thank you for shopping with Penny's Treasures and have a wonderful day!
