Jackie Helder

Necklace: Tourmaline Quartz


I have been creating jewelry since 2000.  It all began 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 to make jewelry.  Hundreds of thousands of beads and thousands of pieces of jewelry later, here I am.

Making jewelry is my joy and my peace.  While I am inspired by colors and patterns that surround me 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. 

Jewelry is a personal experience.  Please let me know if you would like me to customize something I have already created or create a piece specifically for you.   It is my goal to make that experience as rewarding as possible.
