Get to Know

Hi! I'm Jan Porter, and I am the sole designer and fabricator for Facets Jewelry Design. I started making beaded jewelry in 2001, selling through trunk shows and craft shows.

I love the challenge of making a design work as the piece goes together in my hands. It gives me added pleasure to know that others value my efforts and enjoy wearing my designs.

My jewelry making goal is to produce products that convey simple elegance, quality, and comfort. I love working with high quality materials like sterling silver and Swarovski crystals. However, my economic sense tells me I need to also make fun jewelry that won't put a dent in the budget.

Because I have a strong practical side, I like to offer pieces that are easy to put on and off, including lobster claw clasps that you only have to push gently to open and magnetic clasps with guard chains. If this is a need for you, look for easy clasping products or request that a piece of your choice be outfitted with an easy clasp.

I hope you will find something here that suits your taste and needs . Feel free to send me a message with suggestions or special requests.
