My unique, yet affordable handmade beaded jewelry and clay wearable art pieces use genuine gemstones, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, glass, wood, fossil, seedbeads, polymer clay, sterling silver, and gold in necklaces, pendants, earrings, or bracelets. However, I save money and lower prices by buying materials on sale, keeping no overhead, selling online, having no staff to pay, and keeping profit low.
