Welcome to my website. Thank you for visiting. My name is Dawn and I am an artisan jewelry designer. I do what I love and I love what I do.
Handmade Jewelry Artist
Born and raised on Cape Cod, I am a jeweler and artist. I grew up with an appreciation for the natural beauty and landscape of New England. Being on Cape Cod means I am surrounded by family, friends, and a large artist community that fuels and inspires my creative life.
I found my passion for creating gemstone jewelry when I couldn't find pieces that let me shine through. Every jewelry collection was mass-produced and oh so bland.
Wire Wrap Jewelry
I taught myself the wire wrap jewelry technique and began choosing semiprecious gems and artisan pottery beads to make really unique pendants and earrings that were more my style and always o accessories. This passion grew as I learned more techniques to create artisan jewelry and start my own Artisan Gemstone Jewelry company.
My mission as a jewelry artist and designer is to create artisan hand-crafted pieces that are unique with high-quality materials and standards. My jewelry has personality and is timeless. I craft each piece myself, combining the character and personality of each stone with my own artistic styling.
I am a self-taught artist. I am a wife, a mother, a singer, a seamstress, and a photographer as well as a jewelry artist. My love of jewelry and unique gemstones is my passion. It is my mission to bring you the customer and wearer of my art not only interesting hand-crafted jewelry but pieces that let your personality come through as well because you are the ultimate unique gem. The connection with my jewelry to you, whether it be spiritually or intellectually is very important to me.
Jewelry should make a statement about you. Natural gemstones are incredibly unique and have personalities, making them a wonderful material to reflect your personality. Every nook and cranny, every variation can speak to a person drawing them into a place of reflection. I create from this place of connection and love.
My jewelry is environmentally conscious and helps to support other United States artisans. I purchase many of my stones from United states lapidary artists and I also use Argentium silver which is created from recycled sterling silver. It is more pure than sterling (Argentium is .935 silver), and more tarnish-resistant (germanium is added instead of more copper). You can feel confident that your purchase helps support me, the environment, and other artisans right here in the United States.
The sources of my materials are very important to me. I want every custom ring, womens pendant and beaded bracelet to be made from sources that are eco-friendly and support the artisan community whenever possible. I use US lapidary artisans, and fair trade sources whenever possible.

Custom Jewelry Designing
When I first began my journey of handmade jewelry it was mostly custom unique pendants for myself, and as I wore them it expanded into making them for friends and eventually clients. Custom jewelry designing is still a big part of my jewelry store and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love working with clients to make an idea for a sterling silver necklace or a promise ring a reality.
