Precious Metal

With so many jewelry options in the world today it was frustrating to not be able to find something unique and personalized. So I began making my own with the best components I could find. All of these creations are handcrafted and customized for you. Each piece is made one-by-one with everything you dreamed of in mind. All artwork has been oxidized so that it has an aged patina that will continue to darken over time. 

I operate from my kitchen table, after the kids are in bed. Place your order by emailing me at

Teacher's, Coaches, and Giveaway Winners!

With Mother's Day over until next year :(  My next busy weeks are for Teacher's gifts!
This is a simple beautiful heart is for a wonderful Woman, (I will write more later about her) She has 5 fabulous kids, each birthstone is wire wraped and aged.
This heart if for my dear sweet college roommate, who won a giveaway I had on my other blog. She also has 5 kids and 2 sets of twins! 
I love the little flip flops on this necklace. This piece was done as a coaches gift for the team Mom on my son's baseball team, she is also a swim instructor. I have never seen her in anything but flip flops! The amethyst is her son's birthstone.
This is another Teacher's gift for an amazing 1st grade teacher. She has two little kids if her own who have beautiful birthstones. I love the flowers on this piece you can wear it with anything.

Square Mother's Necklace

This is a matching necklace to the Mother's Day pin. The bottom square is stamped with the same floral pattern and hand stamped with the words, "No Greater Joy". The top square has a small dainty flower with "Mom" stamped below. I LOVED the color of the birthstones this Mom has! They all are so pretty together. As always, the phrase on the bottom and the top can be personalized.

Mother's Day Pin

This was my first pin. I think it turned out really nice and I sure learned a lot. When I think about Motherhood this is the perfect verse, 3 John:4. A good friend ordered this for her Mother-in-Law and I am sure it means something special to them also. We hung a small MOM charm from the bottom, along with a green and 2 peach colored stones which are her favorite colors.

Personalized Tree of Life Necklace

This necklace was made for a soon to be Ironman triathlete! This awesome girl is training for the Florida Ironman this fall, way to go!! 
The necklace is a heavy tree of life, oxidized and shined. Hanging from the branches are tiny "leaves" with her children's initials. My favorite part is the dainty little heart on the trunk with her and her husbands initials. The necklace fastens in the front with a sterling silver toggle.

Tree of life and Mother's Necklace

These necklaces were made for a really cool lady in Utah. She had them made for herself! Way to go girl, I do that all the time! 
Her birthstone is a opal, they are so beautiful but very fragile. Did you know that most opals come from Australia? I didn't know that... The alternate birthstone for october is pink tourmaline, which she wasn't thrilled about. So I looked for a few days and found a stone that almost looks like a opal but is very solid. I think it turned out really nice. 
She also did a mother's necklace with her name and her husbands along with their kids birthstones. 
It is really fun to meet such cool people from all over, what a blessing!

26.2 Necklace

Simple and small, this is the perfect necklace to wear everyday. It is light weight and looks great on a leather cord or sterling silver chain. A round hand stamped charm sits behind a 26.2 dangling silver plate. You can add additional races, times, splits, locations, stones etc. $40

Achievement plate bracelet

This colorful bracelet was made for a friend, that with only three weeks notice, had the opportunity to go to Rome for spring break and run with her husband in the Rome Marathon. She is an amazing athlete and did a fabulous job! As she does other races this year I am going to make plates of each race and add them to this bracelet. 
The bracelet is made with solid sterling silver and hand stamped and formed name plate. The stones on this particular bracelet include, garnet, citrine, peridot, fluorite, and one small czech glass bead. It was oxidized for an aged look. $45

Need Inspiration?

I have a really cool neighbor who asked me for an inspiration bracelet to wear everyday. She is trying to loose weight and wanted something with her goal weight, so she can see it daily. We sat down and came up with this fun bracelet that fits her style perfectly! What a great idea she had, we all need a little motivation and inspiration. You can do it girl!

Men's gift or bracelet?

Origionally, this necklace (is that what it is called for men??) was for my husband. I put a favorite saying on one side and a secret message on the back. I got so much interest that I have been doing several different designs with just the hammered ring shape. 
It looks great as a bracelet, and looks even better with Swim, Bike, Run hand stamped on one side. It is a heavy piece.

Swim, Bike, Run

I like the idea of holding something you work for close to your heart. The possibilities are endless with the square necklace, race times and places, cities and dates, inspiring words. $45

The round hammered set I have on a chain, but was just asked for a set of earrings the same size. Great idea. Swim, Bike, Run. $42

Tree of Life

This is my good friend Maureen wearing her tree of life necklace. I thought it would be nice to see the large size of the piece. Check out Maureen's photography HERE and HERE.

For Emma

My sweet little Emma has been asking for a necklace for a while now. I wasn't sure what to do for her but I think I came up with the perfect little charms.
She is not a girlie girl at all, but I wanted her to remember that she is a daughter of God and how much we love her. So I did a little princess crown and a small tag with her name on it. The little stone is her birthstone, lucky girl. 
For most designs I like the very deep tarnished look, for this one I only tarnished the engravings just a little to bring them out more and polished the rest till it shined. I LOVE how it turned out, very dainty and pretty! I can't wait to give it to her, I will have to post a picture when I do.

Small Charms, A favorite Aunt and CTR

Anna, my sister, says these little charms are all the rage right now. So I did a 26.2 marathon one and Anna made the fishes kissing, very cute!
This CTR, Choose The Right necklace is perfect for a teenage girl to remind her of the good choices she needs to make. The pink pearl can be changed to her birthstone or another favorite color. Perfect for a baptism gift.
This was a fun necklace to make. It was for a favorite Aunt of triplets who watches the boys once a month so the parents get a break. It was given to her by a good friend who admires what she does. The large charm says "fly away with Lala" and the boys names are etched onto the wings.

Giveaway Winners!

I did a giveaway on my other blog and these are the winners necklaces! It was a lot of fun and they are some really cool women!

Tree of Life

I LOVE the tree of life necklaces. They can have so many different meanings for so many different people. I did this one for myself with my birthstone, I wear it all the time. These can be done with several stones at the bottom or top. I like it simple with just one

Amethyst Dragonfly

Two strands of beautiful Amethyst chips are drawn together by a single dragonfly with an adjustable length.

Got Grandkids?

My Mother In Law does! She has 11. To keep them all straight and not miss a birthday I created a bracelet with all the names and birth dates. All charms are made from PMC Fine Silver, which is more solid silver than sterling. All charms are tumbled for added durability and shine.
Bracelet with 4 charms $25 each additional charm $5.

Grandmother's Bracelet

Grandmother's bracelets can be custom beaded in any colors or stones. The grandkids names and birthday's (if you choose) are hand-stamped on little disks in any shape. The charms are wire wrapped to stay in place along the bracelet. 

Fly Away With Me!

Fly away with me is a necklace I made for my sister. The saying reminds me of her and her husband, so carefree! I created the wing myself, it is hand done along with the heart stamped with his name and a little pink pearl. This is a large necklace and is heavy. 

Sarah, Oh Sarah!

One of my larger necklaces this one measures almost 2 1/2 inches from top to bottom. It looks so good on a longer chain maybe 22-24 inches. Sarah has 4 boys so she needed something a little girly! The back of this one also has a light pattern imprint. How fun their birthstones are so patriotic! I might do something with a star and the same stones for July 4th....

Thats so Square!

Fine silver is really neat to work with. You can create anything with a little imagination! This style is my favorite, I love the idea of something with my name on it but also reminding me of my kids at the same time... so I put the kids birthstones hanging from the jump rings. It also adds a little color and whimsy. What lucky kids Kathy has, diamonds and pearls for birthstones!


My friend Becky has twins and I love the look of her necklace with all the blue. Her children's birthday's are in February (amethyst) March (aquamarine) and September (sapphire) which makes for a beautiful grouping! 

Mother's Jewelry

This handcrafted and hand stamped pendant Mother's necklace, is a custom order. No two necklaces are alike. The garnet and peridot are genuine faceted stones, wire wrapped in place by hand. The background is textured and the heart is smooth buffed to a shine. Each piece is oxidized for an antiqued look.
