About Me

Someone once told me that when she wore jewelry that was given to her as a gift, it was like receiving a hug from the person that gave it to her.

Jewelry that is given with intention and meaning is a powerful tool to help conjure memories but itís even better when itís Handmade in the USA.

The creative chaos that is my workshop is based in Freeland, Maryland and all of my personalized cuffs, precious metal clay pendants and hand stamped jewelry is forged in my studio. My fine silver metal pendants and charms are made from recycled silver that is 99.9% pure. I hand sculpt, kiln fire, oxidize and polish each piece.

StringOfJewels.com began several years ago when I was searching for something to fulfill my creative side.

In addition to stringofjewels.com, I have expanded my wares to include two shops on ETSY, which if you havenít experienced you should give it a whirl. Itís a fabulous venue for artisans to market and sell their handmade items.

String of Jewels (http://www.etsy.com/shop/stringofjewels) sells my beaded gemstone pieces, earrings and my new collection of custom hand stamped jewelry.

StringOfJewels Cuffs (http://www.etsy.com/shop/StringOfJewelsCuffs) vends all of my hand stamped leather cuffs and inspirational bracelets.

I love the custom leather cuffs and necklaces, because they allow you to express your feelings, state what makes you proud, or profess love in a permanent way. This quirky and personalized line will help you tell your story, state your mood, or inspire greatness.

I am proud to have created a place where customers can have input in designing their own custom piece; where the process is simple but the outcome is meaningful. Welcome to my shop where you are free to be yourself. I love creating personalized messages for others. Please contact me if you have something worthy to say.
