I enjoy jewelry making and I also do a little beading. Occasionally you'll see a beaded bracelet or two; those are usually my creations. I
try to include a quilt charm or something to do with sewing to
make them special for you. If there's anything in particular
you'd like made, let me know and I'll see if I can make it up for
you. I use all sterling findings, clasps, chains, etc.
If you want it in gold, I can get "rolled gold" which is better
than just gold plated.
I recently obtained a new line of jewelry that is
made from silverplate flatware
(silverware) and the pieces are stunning. I even had the
owner make me a watch and to her credit, I asked for an "art deco"
style and that is exactly what I got; the pattern is from 1932.
Deb researches all the patterns she uses and whenever possible
will identify the pattern, manufacturer, and year the item was
made. She will even custom make jewelry.
Because of my love of beautiful things, I also
carry attache cases for jewelry. These are smaller versions of an attache case; about a half size one. They have combination locks,
and hold pendants, rings, bracelets, and all your jewelry items
when traveling, or if you have a small home safe, it will fit
Thimble cages come in various styles and prices. The least
expensive is $25, and is hung with a small width ribbon. Then
there are more ornate designs, again hung from a ribbon. TJ
Lane's are the most expensive, because there are various sizes to
choose from with varying amounts of silver or gold in them.
