Handcrafted Jewelry &
I created Snapdragon Designs Ltd. in 2011, although I had been creating jewelry for friends and family for years. I expanded my creative outlet into a small business catering to St. Louis area art fairs, my Etsy storefront and of course, right here, on my website.
I employ the highest quality materials, from fine & sterling silver to Swarovski crystals, as well as quirky accents – like antique keys, watch gears & bus tokens – to make my unique designs. Please peruse my designs on my Shop and Gallery pages, and (hopefully!) find something that matches you.
Or if you would like something even more tailored to your personality, match a particular color, or go with that special outfit, commision a design. Contact me and I will work with you to create the design you envision.
From traditional to steampunk...
I have two main collections for my handcrafted jewelry: steampunk and traditional.
The steampunk designs feature vintage watch parts, bus tokens, antique keys and other found objects. These pieces, although inticate and intriguing, are often beyond their original use, so I enjoy bringing them back to life in wearable art.
The traditional collection focuses on more customary "ingredients". These designs are comprised of Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, fine and sterling silver.
