My name is Tracy L. Carothers and I am a self taught jewelry designer who started creating artisan jewelry in 1990 first as gifts for family and friends, which then grew to selling my pieces privately. I've been very blessed to have my jewelry pieces sold in some finer boutiques in the Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia and to participate in some really fun and exciting shows and fairs.
In 2007 friends encouraged me to try selling my jewelry online, and the rest is history. Two of my pieces were selected to be in Bead Trends Magazine, Into The Mystic and River Stones, which I am very excited about. Into the Mystic is now for sale in this shop. I live in beautiful British Columbia and take my inspiration for my gemstone jewelry pieces from the natural beauty that surrounds this area. My real job in Property Management is at times stressful, so creating jewelry is as much therapeutic as it is an outlet for my creativity.
I am proud to be a sponsoring member of SRAJD (Self Representing Artists in Jewelry Design) #1727 and also enjoy being part of the ETSY community, the home for buying and selling all things handmade. Recently I joined ETSY Canada, a community set up for Canadians, local and across the country. Thank you for visiting my shop and if you have any questions or a special custom design request, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
My hands form the shape, my heart shapes the form and in my mind ...I see it all before I begin...
