Get to Know

I've been designing jewelry for about a dozen years, but limited myself to making earrings to match all my clothes until retirement! Then Andrea T Jewelry began. Three years on the beautiful Oregon coast became very productive as I developed my skills and sold my jewelry at shows. Now I live in Central Oregon's high desert country. The change is exciting! I like working with gemstones and make some pendants with ocean agates from my collection. I use sterling silver and gold-filled metal for most of my jewelry, with some new items designed in copper wire.

    My first show in Bend. It might be my only outdoor show, as it got a little breezy!

    Now this is more like it for a show. Holiday Marketplace at Sunriver, where I expect to return in 2011.

    This is Bandit, my avatar cat. He helped me begin my jewelry business, and was always on my worktable watching the process.

    And here's Bertie, the new kitty. He doesn't have the same idea of what it means to help me!
