My love for designing and making hand-crafted jewelry began on a trip to Italy in 2005. Looking for unique gifts to bring home to my family I discovered treasures made by artisans and craftsmen, who sold their hand made jewelry from small quaint shops that were no larger than my bedroom. The way these artists met art and fashion made such an impression on me, and this is where my inspiration and desire for what I do came to life.
When I learned the basic techniques of beading I started vigorously creating fashionable accessories for my daughters. They have become my main advertisements, beautifully displaying my creations and growing my customer base. With new customers to create for, my desire to learn more jewelry-making designs and techniques has only grown. I have nine grandchildren and they are the reason for my name - Nanette!
I design and create my jewelry from quality materials and devote my self to making each customer happy with their original hand-crafted adornment.
