Some of these are for me and some of them are things I'd like to give others.

Jewelry by ME! :)

Sat Jun 14, 2014, 4:41 PM

I've been making jewelry for many years now. It started with ribbon barrettes in middle school and then I moved on to stringing beads together. As with all creative endeavours, I wasn't very good when I started out, both in construction and design. I think I've gotten better. :)

I've taken breaks - some years long. I keep returning to it.

I love being creative in this way. I love my photography, too, but that's a different kind of creative.

I like making pretty shiny things for myself and I love making them as gifts. I have sold my items before in shops (a pagan shop and local artists shop) on a consignment basis. Alas, both shops closed their doors years ago. Recently, due to personal circumstances (being laid off and not finding another job as quickly as I'd like), I've started offering my creations for sale again. It helps that I've had plenty of free time lately to actually create!

I thought I'd showcase some of the things I've made here in my journal. If you see anything you like, send me a note and we can discuss price and shipping. Unfortunately, for now, I will have to limit this to domestic shipping only. Apologies. I can do custom pieces, too.
