Like so many of us, she found it difficult to find exactly the right kind of jewelry for herself and started playing around with scraps of wood. Not just ordinary wood, but exotic American burled woods. What started out as an idea of making pieces for herself quickly became a passion that has turned into a full fledged business that has expanded to include foreign exotic wood as well.
Janelle's shop boasts a wide variety of jewelry using gemstones, Swarovski crystal, all kinds of beads and there is even a selection of vintage. There is definitely something for everyone.
This stunning Zebrawood (just the name sounds exotic) was made into a donut shaped pendant which can be hung on a sheer black or brown ribbon. I just love the contrast between the hard woods and the softness of the ribbon.
This pandora bead is aptly name "Apple Pie Spice" because of it's yummy colors with the buttery yellow, pumpkin orange and carmel. The center has been cored with 925 sterling silver and a 925 sterling silver snake chain has been added.
