Skills and Techniques

The women of Rose of Sharon Jewelry (there are 8 of us from the same family - actively creating jewelry) have over 125 years of artistic experience in a wide variety of mediums.



We love to do everything from designing classically simple strung necklaces, wire weaving, wire wrapping, Kumihimo, Viking Knit, metal stamping, resin pendants, bead crochet and more. The best part of having a handmade jewelry business is we explore all the different techniques and share them with you.

Get to Know

We are Rose of Sharon Jewelry - eight wonderful outrageous women all from the same extended family who love to create! Our ages range from 27 to 76 and our artistic talents are as equally broad.



We love wire wrapping, bead stringing, bead weaving, soldering, polymer and metal art clay and collecting vintage beads. Beyond jewelry making, we express ourselves through gardening, quilting, sewing, crocheting, digital scrapbooking, soapmaking, cooking, rubber stamping, photography and our interest in crafts never seems to stop!



Jennie (Granny) just turned 96 and loves making beaded watches and incorporating vintage beads that she has collected since the 30s. Betty shares her faith by creating lovely necklaces with crosses. Sharon (the Sharon of "Rose of Sharon") loves charms and altered art so she combines the two into funky bracelets. Sandra (a former antique dealer) creates jewelry with an elegant, vintage feel. Sarah and Olivia like to explore the wild side of handcrafted jewelry - creating trendy pieces filled with fun.



Our primary jewelry line features one-of-a-kind artisan designs using precious metals, gemstones, freshwater pearls, semi-precious beads and Swarovski crystals. You'll find Rose of Sharon Jewelry Artisan necklaces, earrings, necklace sets, bracelets and more at http://www.roseofsharonjewelry.com.



Our next jewelry line is A.F.F. (Affordable - Fun - Fab) a value-priced line combining our jewelry artistry with more affordable components and less time-intensive designs. A.F.F. is sold at our Etsy store at http://www.roseofsharonjewelry.etsy.com.



Here at ArtFire - we let out all the stops to explore our ever expanding creativity. You'll find altered art necklaces and bracelets, beaded decorative items, pet jewelry, funky handmade charms, polymer beads, handcrafted silver pendants, recycled jewelry, "new life" jewelry featuring collectible vintage beads and more.
