All Eleven Thirteen Jewelry is made by hand (my hands to be exact) from the finest materials. My necklaces feature precious and semi-precious stones, precious metals, pearls, wood, glass and a brand new line of upcycled paper beads. Every design is a one of a kind creation making each necklace unique creation.

What got you started crafting?
I began making jewelry when I could not find pieces I liked in my local stores. I enjoyed jewelry making so much that I began making jewelry for friends and family as gifts for birthdays and holidays. Now I have my own shop and I'm happy to be providing jewelry to others who can't find the unique kind of items they're looking for anywhere else.
What is your source of inspiration?
When making jewelry, I try to make pieces that will last beyond seasons and trends and still look great years down the road. I want you to love your necklace just as much as the day you bought it for years to come.
What have you made recently?
I recently began making upcycled paper bead jewelry and I absolutely love it! The colors are amazing and the beads are so lightweight that a layered multi-strand look can be achieved with next to none of the weight you would have from traditional beads. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of turning something that would normally be discarded into something beautiful to be cherished.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my handmade jewelry via Etsy, my website, and at local Art Walks :)
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Anything that is handcrafted has serious thought and care put into it that you just can't get from mass produced pieces.
