The wire is copper-based, colored, silvered and coated and comes in a myriad of colors. It is especially made for jewelry and will not tarnish. In addition to the wire, I use crystals, fresh water pearls, authentic sea glass (personally harvested on the rocky shores of Peaks Island, Maine), Kazuri beads handmade by a women's collaborative in Kenya, and other beads, yarn, ribbon and glass.

The jewelry is extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. Necklaces tend to absorb your body heat and just mold to you -- you can hardly tell you have anything on, except for the compliments you will get!

Most of the items displayed can be used as examples of what is possible. An infinite number of combinations of wire color and bead choice are available in the various styles shown. In addition, I am happy to create new styles to fit the desires of the discerning buyer. I can crochet almost anything!
