Designs in the Light....Handcrafted Urban Boho Chic Artisan Jewelry"

"Do you love handmade artists? We are Michael and Cherrie, husband and wife team. We have been married 40 years Dec. 2015. Working side by side in our home studio creating handcrafted jewelry designs you will love in your wardrobe.

Cherrie: a published jewelry designer. Interior design, sales rep in the gift industry and marketing and sales coordinator in our family business. I love to design with colorful textures and quality beads of all types including artist beads collected from all over the world.

Michael: designs (pmc) precious silver and bronze and copper metal clay from molds and designs he creates from his original sketches. He teaches this technique at our local bead shop. He is also the heavy hitter with his collection of hammers, metals and flame. He is passionate about designing every part of his earrings, which are not only beautiful but the most comfortable you have ever worn. A fashion photographer, sales and general management in our family business.

We get much of our inspiration from nature and our love of the beach, trees and clouds. We believe in giving back and support many art bead artists who have become our friends and in turn the designs become little works of art.

Cherrie's work has been published in several beading magazines including 26 consecutive issues of Bead Trends, and several issues of Stringing and 101 Bracelets, Necklaces and Earrings. Michael has been a published fashion photographer in the Northern CA Bay Area and also was published in the June 2013 edition of Bead Trends Magazine before they ended the publication.

Our clients are always happy to leave such wonderful comments when they receive their jewelry. Many return often for more designs including custom pieces to coordinate with a piece they have their eye on.

These days we love what we do and can't imagine spending our days any other way. It allows us to spend lots of time with our grandchildren and share our creative life with them.
