Featured Artist: Adornments by BJ

BJ Rounds is the artist and designer behind Adornments by BJ. Her passion, and therefore her obsession is to create unique, one-of-a-kind beautiful artisan jewelry. She has been designing and creating jewelry for about a year and a half. She got started after she bought a beginner kit for her grand daughter--who didn't appear to be interested. She decided to try it out and got hooked. She states "now loads of money and supplies later, I still get much pleasure designing and creating unique jewelry that I hope people will like."

Her shop on Etsy contains quite a variety to fit every style or occasion. She believes jewelry is selected subconsciously, and reflects your persona ~ your soul ~ and that you can be drawn to a stone metaphysically and not understand the attraction.

She tends to lean towards using natural elements ~ semi-precious gemstones, rocks, crystals, shells, wood and metal. Custom Orders are Welcome ~ just convo me with her request.
That's a tough one because if I wasn't proud of them I wouldn't list them. Let me see ~
Maybe the Chinese Knot Jasper since it was the first attempt at making something out of different material and the knots are rather difficult to produce.

I formerly created stained glass works of art, but since moving to Tennesee have not had a place to continue in that medium ~ hopefully my wish for a studio will come to be and I can again work with stained glass and maybe sell my creations on Etsy!

Member of AJC (Art Jewelry Collective), JET (Jewelry on Etsy Team) and SRAJD (Self-Representing Artist Jewelry Designer #0517).
