JEWELRY & ACCESSORIES

Over the years my jewelry making has evolved into custom accessories. I use my graphic design and other crafting experience to create personalized and themed items; in a multitude of settings from fun bottle cap earrings to men’s cuff links. I also enjoy using fabric and feathers to create fun hair accessories like boutique bows and fascinators. 


I have been accepted and participated in many juried FINE ART SHOWS such as The Dewey Arts Fest (Dewey Beach, DE), Art's Alive (Ocean City, MD) and Bethany Seaside Show (Bethany Beach, DE) as well as many indoor and outdoor craft shows of all sizes. 


In addition to shows, my jewelry has been for sale in several boutiques over the years.

PROCESS

I use digital elements & vintage ephemera images that are produced in graphic design software, sized and printed, hand cut, and adhered to settings with special paper glue, then sealed in Epoxy or Glass. The total process from design to finish can take several days. You are getting a truly 1-of-a-kind accessory.

MATERIALS
I use are semi-precious stones, shells, cultured pearls, porcelain, wood, suede, metal, feathers, fabric, and some glass. Materials may be natural or dyed, modified, and / or otherwise enhanced. Silver, gold, bronze and copper tone metal components are alloy based - some may be sterling or gold plated. I purposefully buy materials that are lead and nickel free, and stones / pearls that are authentic.
