I started making jewelry when I was 10. As I got older, I realized how expensive charms and other findings were, so I started to use whatever materials I had and objects that I found around the house. I turned miscellaneous buttons into rings and used my birds' feathers to make necklaces and earrings. I realized that limiting myself to using what I already owned actually allowed me to expand my creativity.
I don't have a job right now, so this is how I make a little money. I work on my craft in my spare time because I am trying to finish up my last year of high school. I am currently trying to sell locally. Next year, when I start college, I hope to open a shop on Etsy to start my own business.

#1 Light Blue Bottled Feather Necklace
I love the idea of little bottles so I used one of my bird's feathers that was small enough to fit inside so make this simple, but cute, pendant. I also have earrings that I made from bigger feathers that you can see on my Instagram.
#2 Rose Quartz Jewelry
I love the soft pink color of rose quartz.
#3 Royal Blue Vintage Earrings
I love the look of vintage jewelry so I made these royal blue earrings to add some sophistication to any outfit!
#4 Vintage Dangle Earrings
This is another vintage set that I made. If you look at my Instagram you can see the matching necklace!
#5 Sword Of Gryffindor Necklace
I love Harry Potter so when I saw this sword pendant I decided to make my own Harry Potter-inspired necklace!
#6 Multi-Strand Pearl Necklace
I made this a few years ago and I took me forever! I love pearls and love the subtle shine on this piece.

I gathered a bunch of my spare buttons and turned them into colorful rings.

My mom had an earring that she lost the other side so I took the leaves apart and made a new pair.
