I have been designing and hand making unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for close to 20 years. My collection of beads and findings is always growing and I continue to take classes to learn new techniques and increase my knowledge of jewelry design.
I joined the Vallejo Gem and Mineral Society a few years ago to further my knowledge of gemstones and minerals.
My designs are available on my website: www.designsbypattiek.com or by private appointment to shop in my home studio.
My studio is always open to anyone wishing to view my jewelry items. I'm also always willing to accommodate a friend in need of a gift or last minute event as well. My inspirations come from many things but mostly from the gemstones themselves. When I look at individual stones they inspire me to make something beautiful.
I redesign and re-purpose old pieces of jewelry and make some jewelry repairs (based on a free one-on–one consultation).
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
