Jewelry Samples

Samples of recent jewelry I have made.  I work primarily with paper, clay, buttons and recycled or upcycled old jewelry.  All of my jewelry is unique and hand-painted by me.  I am always experimenting with new ideas and looks and try to stay on top of what is popular now.

Paper is probably my favorite material for earrings because it is so light.  Paper is extremely versatile and has been used in jewelry for over 2000 years.  There’s no end to it’s shapes and colors and it’s very lightweight.  If you are afraid to wear big bold earrings because of the weight - think paper.  It’s light as a feather.  And all my paper pieces are sealed to make them water resistant (not water proof). With a little care paper jewelry will last for many, many years.

I hope to start selling jewelry online in the near future, in the meantime if you see something you just have to have, contact me.  If you are interested in selling my jewelry in your store please contact me at

Unless noted below the jewelry is made primarily from paper.  Click on any image to take a closer look and open a slide show.



I hand paint all my paper jewelry, so each piece is a piece of art.

I think your jewelry is wonderful! Whimsical, wonderful designs, fabulous colors and unique. I admire your art, both in jewelry and your painting style. I think love isn't too strong a word.
