About Me

I Take Great Pride In My Work, Striving for High Quality!


I strive to only use the best quality materials when designing and making my jewelry.  I seek to find the best artisans in the USA, England, Germany, other areas of Europe, and Australia via Facebook and Etsy with  all my mediums ... Mother Nature's gemstones (precious & semi precious), Lampwork Glass,  Enamels, ceramics, porcelain, polymer clay beads, other metalsmith components,  etc.  I use many Artists that  make OOAK Beads and Components that are top quality.  So many of these beads are difficult for me to part with for different reasons; but I can only wear so many pieces of jewelry. Plus. I've become a bead hoarder.  Having been chronically ill hasn't helped me in that area, as I amassed A LOT of beads when I was unable to create my jewelry.  LOL Hello, I'm Monica; and I'm a bead addict! 

In all seriousness,  I  want my customers to love their pieces as much as I love creating them.  If for any reason a customer isn't happy, I'm not happy.  Please contact me ASAP so we may reach a mutually satisfying resolution.    Thanks!

Thanks so much for supporting small American Businesses!! ~ MONICA  

Thanks for reading thru the tedious but very important policies I've put in place for both for both our protection, My GOAL is satisfied customers; so, Please ask questions!

What Motivtes Me?

First and foremost, the satisfaction of my customers.  Yes, pretty jewelry does, too! I've always been a girly girl. Then while in High School, during Christmas, I worked in a jewelry store. I REALLY got bitten by the bling bug.  My first career, a Registered Dental Hygienist, ended after 23 yrs due to Chronic Illness. Not exatly the retirement I was hoping for at the end of my career.   Life doesn't always work out like we plan.  I'll always be grateful for my last employer for introducing me to the art of jewelry design. Where one door closes, another opens!  Unfortunately, I had to step away from my jewelry several years due to my illnesses, but I'M BACK!!  It feels so wonderful and it's very therapeutic for the mind , body, and soul.  Einstien quoted, " Creativity is the mind having fun".  TRUE!  Still, I'm not happy if my customer's aren't happy.  I want them to be as happy to wear my designs as I am creating them.  My customer's are my testimonials,  my walking advertisements, so you are a very major priority to me. NEVER hesitate to contact me with any of your questions or concerns. This is more than a "hobby" for me.  I'm open to suggestions and ideas, too!

Thanks again for stopping by my corner of the web and looking around!!
