Each piece of jewelry available for sale is a piece of art handcrafted by me, and me only. Because of this, I rotate the designs I work on. If you see something you really like that's sold out, please click the "Notify Me" button on the item page and submit your e-mail. These notifications help me determine what to work on next!
