Quick Blurb

Keeping the ancient jewelry arts alive, handmade, with a modern twist. Viking knit, chainmaille, wire and more.


I do enjoy yarn crafts of all kinds, as well as playing video games, which keeps me young at heart and of course my kittens, my boys, who came to stay with us in October, 2011.

Skills and Techniques

I have been creating jewelry for many years. Viking weave or hand knit wire, Egyptian coil, wire weaving, chain maille. Keeping the ancient jewelry arts alive, with an added modern twist. One of a kind pieces, large and small, stocking several stores on line, since 2006, crafting since I was a child, I always need to be doing something with my hands, to keep them out of trouble.

Get to Know

I have always loved the gemstones, I am a true beadaholic/rock fossil hound, BA/RFH. I take great pride in in my pieces and want my jewelry to be enjoyed for many years to come. I am always trying new design ideas. Using gold plated, silver or Sterling plated and natural copper metals to help hold down the costs. Custom orders are welcome. Over 300 positive feedback when I sold on eBay for a short time, I hope you may have visited then, that shop has a new address here on Artfire, I have reopened stores on Etsy and a few other handmade ecommerce sites, as my sash and inventory has grown since 2007. Looking for a particular stone, I may just have it. I am here everyday and would love to hear your jewelry design ideas. My stock is always changing with new designs, materials, and techniques, check back often.
