I have always enjoyed art and creating things, and one of my favorites to create is jewelry. I like to work with real gemstones and sterling silver for the most part. My favorite stones are tourmaline, turquoise, kyanite, and amethyst. I especially enjoy the bi-color stones like watermelon tourmaline and striped fluorite.
For horse racing fans, I have started a line of horsemarks, gemstone and silver bookmarks to match the silks of your favorite horse. Check them out here.
Currently, I am making earrings, bracelets, necklaces, hair sticks, keyrings, and bookmarks. Below are some of my current listing on Etsy. Take a look and see if anything strikes your fancy. I will also take commissions if you want something in particular. I am selling mostly on Etsy so take a look at my latest items for sale below.
I set my shipping costs to enough to cover actual shipping and the cost of envelopes and packing material (light packet air mail from Canada to the US is the cheapest and starts at $5+13% tax.) Realize that shipping to the US from Canada is slow and usually takes 6-10 business days, although it can take longer. Customs and Homeland Security slow things up considerably compared to mail within the US.
