Creating handcrafted gemstone, beaded, chainmaille, and beadwork jewelry since 2008, my blog connected jewelry artisans around the globe by featuring, hosting, and honoring both bead artists and jewelry artists for non-profit events to support children with serious illness and their families through Beads of Courage.
I have hosted numerous jewelry design challenges and been featured in jewelry publications as an instructor in the art of chainmaille. Quality work and fair trade, as well as sliding fee scales and charity fundraising, are all important values to me.
With almost 200,000 hits on my non-profit jewelry blog, I'm honored to have shared my jewelry and featured many jewelry artisans to express love, gifts of hope, appreciation, and to celebrate the best of life! I am excited to now share my jewelry for purchase, and am happy to create custom, personalized jewelry as well as duplicate styles for groups or events. I create jewelry in numerous techniques: chainmaille, micromaille, beadwork, gemstone wirewrapping, beaded and embossed metals.
