Melrose , Ma, United States


I am inspired by the components that I work with. My collection of beads and findings is enormous!. I am inspired by earrings that I see on other people and how I could make something similar with my own beads. Sometimes this includes color schemes, designs and mixing various components.

Get to Know

I love making these earrings ! It is a relaxing and satisfying hobby. I would like to share this passion with anyone that will appreciate my creativity.
I work with crystals, Swarovski crystals, glass, lava, coral, horn, bone, seeds, shell, wood, millefiore, lamp work, chevron, metal, assorted charms and many many other components. I sometimes use vintage and restructured jewelry pieces.
I have sold my earrings to many coworkers, including wedding wear, at craft fairs, consignment shops, a yoga retreat. I have given away tons!
I have bartered with others including a plumber!
I have given them with a tip to waitresses!
