Here's where I share my ideas on jewelry designs, running a small creative business, inspiration from Martha's Vineyard and living on island time. If you like what I have to say, or have comments or questions, please post a comment and I'll reply.

When she's not traveling, Roberta Kirn helps me make jewelry. But Roberta's passion is music, and as part of her Song Exchange Project she travels to faraway places to learn and share songs that help link us as humans and join us in community.

You love the look of my multistrand bracelets but many of you are intimidated by the clasp. I've been clasping and unclasping my own bracelets for years without much trouble at all and I thought it was time to share my methods.
In this video I model my unique vintage locket earrings and walk you through the color choices. These sweet earrings are made from a tiny locket (that really opens!) The video was taken in my booth at the ACRE show in Las Vegas, where I was a vendor...
Inspired by my seaglass stash from days spent wandering island beaches, my new collection is just beachy. With borrowed hues and textures from ocean-tumbled glass, this jewelry is sure to transport you to the water's edge.
