Jewelry for Work and Play
At Shiny Adornments, you will find a large selection of sterling silver and copper jewelry – earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. They use lampwork beads and wire-wrapping techniques in their jewelry, which only enhances the beauty of the designs.

Vintage Amethyst and Purple Glass Earrings
These earrings are made of sterling silver, vintage glass, and purple glass beads. They are approximately 1 3/4 inches long not including the surgical steel ear wires.

Shiny Adornments uses lots of Mykonos Metalized Ceramic Beads in their designs, particularly the bracelets. These natural ceramic beads are dipped in copper, kiln-fired again, then finished with 24 Karat Gold, Fine Silver, or Pure Copper. And they look like the real thing.

Teal Blue Apatite Bracelet
Gorgeous deep teal rectangular pillow apatite beads connected to brushed sterling silver round beads. Sterling silver clasp is handmade and hammered. Fits a 6 3/4 to 7 1/2 inch wrist.

The Mykonos company also offers their ceramic beads in Antique Patinated Silver and Green Patinated Copper finishes. With the high costs of precious metals these days, these components must save time and money for jewelry designers.

Artist Statement

I like to create things in my Wichita, Kansas, studio. I find inspiration in the wildflowers I drove past this morning on the way to work, or the suit I just bought that needs the perfect accessory, or the strange dream I had last night. Sometimes, I just want to see if I can make the wire and components obey my commands. :-)

I make jewelry I would wear myself. I prefer sterling and gold filled wire, and I occasionally use copper and brass. The materials depend on my mood and inspiration. I tend to incorporate stone, lampwork, (usually made by a self-representing lampwork artist), glass, and polymer clay beads in my jewelry. But I also like the simplicity found in bare metals and maille. My goal is to create wearable items for work and play.

I belong to Self-Representing Artists and Jewelry Designers.
