Hand Made Jewelry

Yesterday, I mentioned a wonderful website, Made in Ja-Pam, that is owned by a friend of our family. While I was able to give one small example of Pam’s work, I don’t feel I did justice to the vast scope of her talents. Today, I thought I would show off more of her work and brag about our amazing friend.

My husband has known Pam for, oh my…, 17 years now? They used to work together at a giftware company. I came along about 13 years ago and got to know her as well. The company, unfortunately, went under about 9 years ago, but the artists from the studio have kept in touch since then. About the middle of last year, Pam decided to start a website and show off all the neat projects that she has been working on.

It wasn’t until the beginning of this year that I had an opportunity to explore her work. Oh, my! I didn’t know how much I had been missing. Pam’s talents range from drawing, sculpting, jewelry making (we are not talking about putting beads on a string, but actually making the jewelry), and so much more.

 

The minute I came across these tiny clear squares with aqua and gold, I was sold! I emailed Pam right away, asking to place an order. I thought I would treat myself to an early birthday present. They were beautiful and, literally, one of a kind! Pam was absolutely gracious and gave me the best deal ever (wink, wink). She then told me that she could make a pendant to match. Imagine how excited I was! A few weeks later Pam completed this clear resin pendant with aqua and gold I was able to add to my collection. I could not have been happier with the results. They are absolutely unique.

Recently, I noticed that she was commissioned to make some beautiful mustard seed pendants for another friend. While excited for the buyer of these beautiful pieces, I am slightly jealous. They too are amazing. Her most recent piece which has me all a flutter is her steampunk post earrings. Too cute!

While Pam has sold some of her jewelry, this is not a full time gig yet. I am anxiously awaiting the opening of an Etsy account or something of the like. There, I can browse and purchase more of her jewelry to my heart’s content. For now, I will simply wear the creative items that I already own. When she becomes big, I can brag about owning some of her original pieces and write a book about how “I knew her when…”.
