My name is Jackie Helder and I have been creating jewelry since 2000. It all started when after a difficult day I bought myself an orange and pink bracelet at a little boutique. After I brought it home, I decided I would also like one in green and blue. So I studied my new treasure and began to teach myself how t make jewelry. Hundreds of thousands of beads and thousands of pieces of jewelry later, her I am.
Making jewelry is my joy and my peace. While I am inspired by colors and patterns that surround us every day, my biggest inspiration is the beads themselves. I have surrounded myself with them and their incredible energy moves me to create unique and beautiful art to share with the world.
Each one of my pieces is a carefully crafted work of art. I use sterling silver, brass and copper findings. My beads come from locations and artisans all over the world. I use semiprecious stones, precious stones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and so much more.
Please let me know if you would like me to customize something I have already created or create a piece specifically for you. Jewelry is a personal experience. It is my goal to make that experience as rewarding as possible.
