One day I was in a well-known craft store and was drawn to all of the brilliant colors, textures and shapes of the wall of beads. I was fascinated. My friend said she knew how to turn the beads into finished pieces, so we bought a few things and took them home. I was hooked!

I love finding new beads that inspire me. From earrings to necklaces and bracelets, I love it all. I have even begun to learn silversmithing to add a whole new depth to my creations.

I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I love creating them.

Beautiful, affordable jewelry, handmade with love

Welcome to Romance and Rhinestones. I have been handcrafting jewelry for over ten years and love creating one of a kind items for you to enjoy. I don't limit myself to one style, but rather follow the inspiration I feel when I see the wonderful colors and textures of the materials. Sometimes dainty and delicate, sometimes bold and chunky, sometimes even a little funky. Happy shopping!
