About Us

Hi, my name is Joyce Nolan and I LOVE JEWELRY!  Always have.  I remember being a young kiddo rummaging through my Mother's jewelry box and pretending that I had the Queen's jewels in my hot little hands!  The sparkle was enticing!  The colors were inviting!  Yep!  I was hooked!

I love all kinds of jewelry!  Love the beads.  Love the silver.  Love the gold.  (Really love the diamonds--but that's a whole other thing).  One day I came across a soldered piece of jewelry that had an image of a pin up cowgirl encased in glass.  I thought it was the coolest thing since peanut butter!  So I bought it!  But I didn't want to stop there, I wanted to learn how to make my own and choose all kinds of different images!  It could be endless!  And it could be very personal.  For instance, I love the Beatles and so I made a Beatles pendant and each time I wear it, I am reminded of their great music and how much fun I had listening to it for the first time!  My favorite pendant however is the one I made with a vintage black and white photo of my Mother!  Of course I wear it close to my heart!

Well, I started off making soldered pendants just for myself but soon realized that my ideas were overflowing and I had to share!  Now I have a wonderful time creating this unique, eclectic jewelry.  And it is my hope that I can create a special piece just for you!  So please, feel free to rummage through my jewelry box!   

On a personal note, I want to thank my hubby Edward for supporting my creativity!  We make our home in the beautiful hill country in Wimberley, Texas for most of the year and also have a vacation home in East Jordan, MI where I spend my summers at Michigan shows.  I am orginally from Michigan and love going home in the summer!!!  We are blessed to have my handicapable brother Velton living with us ever since our parents passed on.  And together we take care of our three dogs, a chocolate lab named Remington and two cavalier king charles spaniels.  One named Zeppelin (yes, I am a classic rocker at heart) and the newest addition is Bella (yes, I am a twilight fan, my husband Edward fell in love with little Bella at first sight and I couldn't resist!).

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon!
