I started Jewelry by Jill in 2005. I have been selling my jewelry online through Etsy since September of 2007. I have had fantastic success and everyone keeps coming back for more! It is so much fun to make things that I know are going to bring happiness and beauty to places all over the world!
I am a young artist in the Midwest and I believe strongly that love and creativity is vital to beauty. I love to share my work and have other’s work shared with me. Art creates community, and here we are part of a worldwide community, which is a fantastic experience to be offered as an artist.
My work is eclectic to the nth degree. I have hundreds of styles of earrings that range from super simple drops to elaborate chandelier and super sparkly evening earrings. In the jewelry department I also have wood, glass, and suspension necklaces, adult and little girl stretchy bracelets, anklets, vintage button rings, bead rings, and many, many styles of pendants including those I have made from vintage postage stamps and dominos. In the non-jewelry department I have beaded bookmarks, key chains, glass collage magnets, collaged eyeglass cases, gift boxes, frames, and sometimes even a reusable shopping bag or two.
I started the business to combat the overwhelming amount of middle-aged woman running around with pricey crystal and sterling silver making ridiculously expensive jewelry. My pieces appeal to all ages, and are known for their bright colors, artistic design, affordability, and dependable workmanship. Most of my pieces are not showy, but I rely on simple lines and extraordinary color to really make them POP!
Everything I do, I do with love and creativity. Thanks for stopping by and come back often! I will be posting new things frequently, and not just jewelry! You never know what you’ll find! I’m willing to try just about anything as long as it leaves room for me to be creative!
And you know, you can never have too much jewelry!
