I GLADLY take custom jewelry orders. They're my bread and butter! You can view custom orders on my biz facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.77001784188.71729.70965219188&type=3 . (Copy and paste the link!). Please note that custom jewelry orders can take up to a month to be completed, so please plan ahead! Custom work must be paid in full before I'll order supplies. Thanks!
I've been published in "Rubbish" by Kate Shoup for my recycled stamp brooches. You can view some of my brooches by copy & pasting this link: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/ZenithJade/0/0/172721 . Cool, huh?
I've been making jewelry since 1999. Longer if you count childhood macaroni necklaces. :) My Mom still has a beaded necklace I made in MIDDLE SCHOOL. Do you have any idea how old I am, now?! *winks*
I decided to start making jewelry after I got back from Brazil (I was an exchange student) because of the BEAUTIFUL and STUNNING wirework they make there. I'm still obsessed with making wire jewelry. My best piece made of wire was a Sterling Silver, Freshwater Pearl and Swarovski Crystal TIARA. :)
In between learning how to REALLY play with wire, I got distracted by BEADS. Especially GEMSTONE beads. Blending stones with freshwater pearls is a recurring theme you'll see throughout my shop.
