My name is Olivia K. Kirby and I have been experimenting with beading techniques and jewelry making for most of my life. I find inspiration in a variety of things, ranging from music to the jewelry of other designers to nature and even mood.
I started this blog to chronicle my projects and show people what I do in case they're interested in purchasing a well-made but reasonably priced piece of jewelry as a gift or for themselves. It also helps me keep track of my progress as I experiment with different techniques and styles.
The hardest thing for me is pricing. I like to make quality things at a comfortable price because I've often been unable to get things I like due to costs. I think people shouldn't have to sacrifice quality to pay less. I price as low as I can given the materials I use; I charge very little for time involved, because it's worth it to me for someone to be happy with the piece they want.
This blog showcases my work and my experiences. I hope you see something you like! Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, and if you like a piece in particular, mention it in the subject heading of your e-mail.
