Smokey Dreams Bracelet

I had a dream about a bracelet, so I woke up, started designing, and this is the result! The center of this bracelet is a large smokey quartz stone, accented by two tiny tourmaline beads. Freshwater pearls adorn each side of the stone.

This bracelet was handmade using sterling silver wire to form the rectangular centerpeice. The beads are all wire wrapped using sterling silver wire. I then linked the centerpiece to a sterling silver bracelet with a heart toggle.

Currently not for sale.

The Random Nursery Rhyme Bottlecap Collage Pendants

I recently bought a vintage book of nursery rhymes for children, and found that there are a TON of random nursery rhymes that make no sense! I started the Random Nursery Rhyme Collection of bottlecap pendants to celebrate these nonsensical rhymes.

This particular pendant is the Peter the Eggbeater rhyme, and it goes like this:

"'Now for a brisk, a jolly time!' Said Eggbeater queer and droll; Then he whirled his wheel around, as he stepped into the bowl. 'They're a crafty set,' quoth he, as he beat the eggs to foam. 'Oh! These eggs will be a sight when I leave the bowl for home.' He whipped and whipped and beat and stirred, until the eggs could hardly stand; Their cries and moans they say were heard, throughout the town, throughout the land."

Wow- and to think- someone actually got paid to write that.

OOAK original mini collage using vintage image from a nursery rhyme book. Collage is forever encased in a glass-like coat of resin for years of enjoyment. Pewter star charm can be added to the bottom of this unique pendant for no additional charge (see pic #3). Just put it in the message section when you purchase. The back of the bottle cap is gold. Necklace comes strung on a stainless steel ball chain (not shown) in the length of your choosing. Please specify what length you would like in the message section when purchasing. If no length is specified, a 16" chain will be included.

Foray Into Collage

My constant quest to create unique jewelry has led me into the wonderful world of collage! I love one of a kind art peices as jewelry, so I thought- why not a magnet, or a bookmark, or a....?

Posted here is a sample of my foray into the world of collage. My two art magnets can be purchased at my Etsy shop at

The Tarot Collection

I recently stumbled across a very cool set of teeny tiny tarot cards. So naturally, I chopped them up, added some glitter, and made pendants out of them!

Check out the new Tarot Collection at Amy J Designs. There's only Strength and The Star to start with, but more tarots are on their way!
