My Newest Jewelry Design!

Hey Everyone!

The following pictures are of my latest jewelry design!  I originally made it for a local store here in Cartersville, but I will be posting it on etsy soon!
This necklace features blue puana shell beads, red Czech fire-polished beads, and incorporates antique silver accents to complement the pewter pendant. 
Thank you for your interest in our products!  We appreciate your business!

1860's Inspired Necklace

Dear Blog Readers,

I just thought you might like to see a necklace and earring set that I made for myself, for it is a rare occurrence that I make jewelry just for me.  Isn't that ironic?  Me, a custom jewelry designer, only seldom making a piece for my own!  Anyway, that's a completely different story!

To tell you the inspiration behind this necklace, I need to tell you that one of the many things that my family enjoys doing, is going to Civil War reenactment balls.  For those of you unfamiliar to what those are, a group of us get together and we do the same dances popular during the 1860's.  Most balls include dance cards, 1860's style attire, good old fashioned manners, and all the fun that goes with stepping back into the past!  To get an idea of what the attire is like, the below picture is of myself at a Civil War Ball.  It is hard to get a good photo of someone while they are dancing, so please ignore the blurriness of the photo . . . and all of the totally unauthentic, red SOLO cups on the windowsill.

 So, this is one my three ballgowns, and I needed a necklace to match it!  I wanted it to be consistent with what they wore in the Civil War Era, so I did some research.  To my immense pleasure, I discovered that the most popular pieces of jewelry back then were cameos.  They had cameo brooches, necklaces, hairpins, earrings, bracelets, etc.  Needless to say, I decided to go with a cameo for the focal point of my necklace's design! Then, I added some fresh water pearls, antique silver accents, and garnet beads to complete it!

In the end, I had a necklace that went perfectly with my dress because I had designed it for it.  I was complimented on it all night, and many wanted to know where I had found such beautiful necklace that matched my outfit so well!  The answer was simple,"I am a custom jewelry designer, and this is my business!  I look at the purpose, style, colors, and personality I need the piece to have, and then I create it based on those things!"

That could be you!  You could be the one with the perfectly matching jewelry and outfit at the prom, a wedding, a dance, a party, or even on just a random day!  Sometimes you just can't find the right accessories in the stores and you end up having to compromise.  Don't compromise!  The solution is easy!  Have one custom-made!  All you need to do, is send me an email at!   Let me know the purpose, style, colors, and personality you would like your piece to have, and I will incorporate into a design just for you!

Here are some pictures of pieces I have custom designed:

So, are you headed of to a special event?  Do you want something for everyday purposes that matches the colors and styles you wear all the time? Let me know!

Have a blessed day!

NEW Women's Blooming Winter Hat

A friend of mine had a birthday earlier this month, and I designed this hat to give to her as a birthday present!  It originally didn't have the flowers, but I felt the hat needed something to go with her elegant, fun personality!  Long story short, she loved it!  And I had so much fun making it!

So, I am now selling these handmade beanies!  Each hat is only $15.00, they come in both women sizes and girls sizes, and, if I can find the yarn, I can make them in any two-color combination! 

To order go to!

Happy Monday!

Sent Across the Country with Love

      I just sent off my first mail order this last week.  It was exhilarating that people out of state were interested in my jewelry.  Okay.  Maybe it was my aunt who happens to live out of state.  But.  Hey!  It was still so cool to package up one of my very own pieces of jewelry to ship out as an order.  So far all of my orders have been able to be delivered locally. 

     I designed this necklace for my aunt, a very sophisticated lady from the west with quite a stylish flair.  I used all natural polished shell beads with antique silver accents.   
     So, I carefully packed them in a padded box and I hand-designed a logo for the top of the lid.

         Then I placed them in a box and sent across the with love!  So, that is my big and exciting news of the week! 
   Have a great week!
