Welcome to Gillieflour Handcrafted Jewelry!
Here you will find artisan wire and beaded jewelry, suncatchers, Christmas ornaments, decorations, and bookmarks that I have carefully hand crafted using quality components. I use various types of wire for all tastes and budgets, including natural and non-tarnish copper, sterling silver, non-tarnish silver-plated copper, non-tarnish brass, and 14k gold filled. The type of metal used is noted in the description of each piece. You will find a variety of pretty beads to choose from, including semi-precious stones, Czech glass and Swarovski crystal. Thanks, and enjoy your visit!
I'm a nurse, a wife, and mother of three. Not too long ago, I discovered that I take great pleasure in forming cold, hard metal into something warm and inviting. I also found that people seem to like the things I make, so I began selling a few things. My wire work has swept me back to my childhood love of rocks and beads, and I've enjoyed combining them.
Whether it's the sparkle of Swarovski crystal, the rich color of Czech glass, the smooth beauty of a piece of polished natural stone, or the alluring curve of a piece of wire, I find the manipulation of the interplay between texture and light, along with the satisfaction of creating, to be therapeutic and fulfilling. And I enjoy sharing that with others.
