Handmade Jewelry


Welcome to my website! I design and create one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, and earrings... unique pieces using high-quality semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls, and sterling silver in unusual sizes, shapes, and combinations.
 
I have recently expanded my collection with two new materials- Italian made woven metal, a completely new application I originated! and "Mesh Nests"- very fun, very cool! When you click "Browse All Pieces" at the top of the page and find something you are interested in, just contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions and/or complete your order. My handmade designs are often chunky and bold, and always make a statement. When desired, I can make more delicate designs for clients who prefer a more subtle look.
 
Accessorizing with unique, hand-crafted designer jewelry makes every woman more beautiful! You will find that these pieces are truly art for your body. Jewelry moves you from looking fine to looking fabulous! Since women are fabulous, their accessories should be equally fabulous!
 
I began designing jewelry more than ten years ago, using a variety of materials from paper to metals. In 2003 I began working with gemstones, creating bold, contemporary beaded jewel y with high impact. I received so many compliments on the stones I used and the designs I created that I decided to pursue this passion full time! After extensive research, experimentation, and travel, I started my business, Jewelry Link. Each necklace, pair of earrings, and bracelet is one of a kind, made from unusual shapes and high-quality semiprecious stones that I have personally selected.
 
Some of the gemstones I've found in my travels include jade, rock quartz, citrine, aventurine, mother of pearl, turquoise, garnet, amethyst, onyx, rose quartz, opalite, coral, labradorite, jasper, sodalite, carnelian, and freshwater pearls. I use the highest-quality, uniquely designed sterling silver closures; I particularly like using toggles, "S" hooks and lobster clasps that are large and easy to close. I am able to keep my prices reasonable since I sell directly to you! I am very discerning and you will discover that the quality of my work reflects this.

  • Most necklaces are 16" - 20" long, but can be made to your specifications.
  • If you are interested in earrings to coordinate with any of the necklaces I can make them for you.
  • My jewelry is appropriate for work, play, or those dressy occasions!

    WOVEN METAL COLLECTION These are my latest designs using an Italian metal fiber! This collection is a unique way to use this interesting material which I created after much experimentation... I am comfortable saying you won't see it anywhere else! I hope you like it as well.
My pieces sell at juried arts-and-craft shows, home and office parties, through my Web site, and in several boutiques in the Washington, DC area. The National Building Museum sells my pieces in their Museum Shop which is rated the best museum store in DC!! I also do custom work by collaborating directly with my clients on the stones, color, size, and the look of the desired piece. This allows you to accessorize with high impact at very reasonable prices, creating a finished and put-together look.



If you live in the DC area I can also provide:
