I have been designing and hand making unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for over 12 years. My collection of beads and findings is always growing and I continue to take classes to learn new techniques and increase my knowledge of jewelry design. I recently joined my local Gem and Mineral Society to further my knowledge of gemstones and minerals.
I currently show and sell my jewelry and accessories at The Hub Community Center for the Arts (at the corner of Georgia and Marin Streets - Vallejo, CA), I can also be found on the second Friday of the Month at the downtown Artwalk also at the corner of Georgia and Marin Streets and on my website www.designsbypattiek.com.
I will always accommodate a friend in need of a gift or last minute event. My inspirations come from many things but mostly from the gemstones themselves. When I look at individual stones they inspire me to make something beautiful.
I redesign and re-purpose old pieces of jewelry and make some jewelry repairs (based on a free one-on–one consultation).
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it for you.
