All of the items you see on this site are
handcrafted by me for my exclusive jewelry line. I
use only top quality materials including
beads from local artists or my own designs - nothing
mass-produced. All the lampwork beads have been
properly annealed - a process in which the beads are
hardened overnight in a digitally controlled kiln -
this makes them almost unbreakable. The gemstones are AAA genuine and
natural unless otherwise noted (some gemstones are
dyed). Swarovski crystals, David Christensen furnace cane art glass,
and vintage beads are also used. 49 strand
beading wire is used for strength and
durability. All silver is sterling, either
Bali or Thai - no plated or base
metal is used.
extensively to bead and gemstone shows to find the
newest and finest materials available. The lampwork
and gemstone beads are purchased from a variety of
vendors and venues. I literally search the world for
the best of the best. I work hard at keeping track of the
latest fashion trends and what's hot. However, I pride
myself on the timeless quality of my pieces. I don't
want to design something that will sit in your jewelry
box because it's gone out of style. Hopefully my
designs will become quality treasured heirlooms to be passed down from
one generation to the next.
