I would be delighted to create an original piece for someone special in your life.  Hey, you’re in your life and you’re special.

All pieces are made with high-quality Japanese seed beads, real Czech charlottes, Swarovski crystal, and pressed glass (Czech or German as available).  Absolutely no Chinese crystal.

I have access to vintage Swarovski dealers; all foiled cabochons will be backed and/or lifted as appropriate to prevent wear and tear.  Select lampwork focals and antique European glass also available.  I love glass eyeballs! Lucite, not so much.

Pieces start at 90 USD for a pendant similar to the one shown.  A fully beaded necklace with a focal will run between 150 USD and 500 USD.  Prices to include supplies, labor and shipping.

All pieces will be unique.  I cannot recreate a design or make a rendition of someone else’s.  I may be willing to assemble a kit for you if it is unusual, challenging and hitherto untouched.

Payment is due before work can begin.  Paypal, checks and money orders accepted.

Updates will be given regularly during the creation process, including sketches before I begin.

Commissions are: Open.  Email to inquire

Yes! I teach.  Further details awaiting my acceptance into the bead society of my new stomping grounds.
