Elegant Handcrafted Jewelry

elegant handcrafted jewelry 5 strand crystal bracelet

This is the place to find elegant handcrafted jewelry for special occasions or just for every day. If you have an outfit that you want to accessorize, I can create a custom piece to your liking.  Wedding jewelry is something I love to create.  I’ve done bridal jewelry and jewelry for attendants.  I can also do repairs and cleaning for a small fee.

This website was launched as of April 1, 2016.  Most of my stock is on the website now.  I continue to create new pieces all the time so you will see new products added to this site often!  If you have questions or you’re looking for something specific that you don’t see here, contact me and I’ll let you know if I have something suitable or can make what you’re looking for.

August 2017 Update

Well the summer sArt in the Park Petrolia 2017hows are all done as of yesterday.  We did Art in the Park Petrolia, Art in the Garden Blenheim, Art on the Boulevard Erieau and Art in the Park WAMBO in Wallaceburg.  It was a successful summer season and now it’s time to go shopping for more materials to make new pieces!  The website has been updated to remove stock that was sold over the summer but I do have more stock that hasn’t been added to the website yet.  Over the next few months I’ll update the site for new products and as I make new pieces, I’ll add them too.

Enjoy the rest of this summer season.  It won’t be long before we’ll be complaining about the cold and snow!

Fall Update

I may be premature in saying “fall” update but I can’t believe how quickly after September 1st the weather has started to cool down!  It was a busy summer with Art in the Park Petrolia, Art in the Garden Blenheim, Art in the Park Ridgetown and Art on the Boulevard Erieau.  So far I have 2 shows scheduled for the fall:  Art in the Park Sarnia next weekend at Mike Weir Park and the Christmas Craft Sale in Alvinston November 26th.  I will likely add a few more shows to the list so check back often for updates.  I’ll be busy making some things for Christmas and creating some new pieces for these shows.  I’m also hoping to sneak in a trip to Toronto to shop for some new materials as well.  Happy Autumn and hope to see you at an upcoming show!

Art in the Park Petrolia and Upcoming Events

Art in the Park Petrolia 2016This week has flown by after being at Art in the Park Petrolia last Friday and Saturday.  It’s been a busy time packing, unpacking, taking inventory and making a few things for next week’s event.  Art in the Park was a lovely event with lots of people visiting from the Victoria Playhouse and others just stopping by to shop and take in the various musical events throughout the day.  We were lucky the weather held out except for the storm that rolled through Friday night.  Fortunately the organizers were watching the weather and shut the event down well before the storm hit.  We saw a few familiar faces and met lots of new people in Petrolia.

Now we’re getting ready for Art in the Garden in Blenheim.  Cherry Fest will be going on at the same time so there will be lots of interesting activities for everyone.  Hope to see you there!

 

Custom “Ocean Breezes” Bracelet

Ocean Breezes Bracelet made by Bluewater BlingA good friend and customer contacted me recently asking if I could create a bracelet for a retirement gift.  The recipient has a vacation home on the ocean so she thought she might like a bracelet in colours of the ocean.  She also specified that she wanted the bracelet to be made of crystal and silver.  So this is what I came up with!  She seemed quite pleased with the result.

If you’re looking for something special, contact me and I’ll design a unique piece to suit your needs!

The July shows are coming up fast.  The first one up is Art in the Park Petrolia.  Check out our “Upcoming Events” to see details of where we’ll be each weekend in July.

 

Custom Order for a Wedding Guest

Here is an example of a custom order I recently filled for a good friend and customer who wanted to having something made for her mother.  She had bought a dress for a wedding and needed jewelry to finish the ensemble.  You can have a look at the dress here.  She wanted something black with a bit of red in it and she loves sparkle.  So this is what I created.  The necklace and earrings are made from Swarovski crystals in black (jet) and red (light Siam).  Both pieces are finished with black matte findings.  If you are looking for something to go with an outfit for a special occasion contact me with details of what you are looking for.Jet & Light Siam Crystal Necklace made by Bluewater BlingIMG_7979

Wallaceburg Museum Craft Sale – May 29th, 2016

Wallaceburg Museum Craft SaleHere is a picture from our booth at the Wallaceburg Museum Craft Sale last Sunday.  It was a beautiful summery day so it was hard to entice people to come indoors.  However we did have a few visitors.  Next sale is Art in the Park in Petrolia, July 8th and 9th.  In the meantime, I will be continuing to make new pieces up until that date so check the website often for new products!

Custom Order and Update on Progress

Well, I’ve been feverishly working away at updating this site with all the products I have to offer and we’re almost there!  Only about a dozen more items to add and then I can get back to making more jewelry.

This past week I received an order for one of the necklaces on this site and a request to make some earrings and a bracelet to go with it.  So here is what I created.

Made by Hand Event, Wallaceburg

We had a booth at the “Made by Hand” event yesterday, April 2nd, 2016.  There were lots of vendors there selling their hand made wares.  This event was a fund raiser for the Wallaceburg & District Council for the Arts.  The weather was quite cold with some flurries in the air, but we had a good turnout.  Back to work today though.  I will be photographing my bracelets and adding them to the website.  After that, I will be getting back to creating some new pieces for spring and summer.  I have loads of crystals and natural stones that I’m itching to work with.  Please check back often to see the new additions!

Looking forward to our next event which is a craft show at the Wallaceburg Museum, 505 King Street, Wallaceburg, Ontario on May 29th.  Hope to see you there!
