Get ready to start your day! I greet each New Morning with gratitude and a smile.
As with my stained glass, I have a passion for jewelry and have been creating designs and selling with galleries for many years. Just recently, some friends convinced me to open an Etsy shop. At first I was hesitant, knowing the tremendous amount of time it takes to manage an Etsy shop since I started with my stained glass a couple of years ago. Was I crazy!! Well, I decided to open up the first Etsy jewelry shop last year with my partner, and daughter, and we created Perfect Pair Jewelry. Here we offer one-of-a-kind industrial hardware washer jewelry, and incorporating my daughter’s artistic talent, her wonderful hand painted pieces. I admire her passion for detail and also her humor. Here is one of my favorite pieces.
So if that wasn’t enough, I introduced New Morning Jewelry to Etsy in May 2011. I personally create every piece of jewelry with the highest quality .925 sterling silver. and incorporate gem stones, hand formed and hammered sterling embellishments, and sometimes copper for contrast. I find the early morning is the best light for photographing my work and it is the peak time for my creativity, so it seemed fitting that New Morning Jewelry be the name of my shop.
I love everything organic, minimalism, and working with my hands, especially making glass and jewelry.
I do what I love, and love what I do. Ever since I can remember, I have been inspired by all the art and beauty in the Universe, and I bring this energy into my jewelry creations. An artist herself, my mother was my greatest influence, inspiration, and strength and taught me to always "make it my own".

So, weather you’re into the industrial look or the “Real” or “Desperate Housewife” and love the delicate side of sterling silver and gems, be sure to check out my great selection of handmade jewelry. It’s simple, classic, and uniquely handcrafted that is affordable and you can wear every day. Brighten up your day and be on the look out for more fresh ideas and designs.
I am very passionate about supporting the handmade movement. Where else can you find jewelry that is fashionable and modern looking but not too expensive, and most of all, made by hand especially for you.
What kind of jewelry do you like to wear? Just drop me a note and I would be happy to create a piece especially for you.
