- How I make jewelry using a paper layering process...
I realized at a young age that I had the ability to create things, and I really enjoy working with many different mediums to create unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Using everything from vintage spoons, keys, tin cans, and bullet casings. Here is one of the recent pieces I created, and the process behind it. Enjoy! This piece of jewelry is made of layers upon layers of construction paper. Cutting out each piece by hand into the exact shape I wanted, then gluing them one on top of the other until it’s as thick as I want the pendant to be. Here are the steps in order Step 1: Cut the construction paper into the right shape for the pendant. Step 2: Glue one piece onto another until it’s as thick as you want. Step 3: Using a very fine sanding paper to sand it so that all the sides are smooth and lined up the way I wanted them to be. Step 4: I applied a polyacrylic clear gloss to seal the pendant, and then... Step 5: It was then strung with coordinating beads to add the final touches and to finish off the complete necklace This piece is called “On Wings of Eagles” referencing Isaiah 40:31. The design for this one really came from inside the piece itself. I know that the Lord uses my hands and guides me to create everything I set my hands to do. And this piece, having layer upon layer of paper, had one piece of paper that had an eagle imprinted on one side. And as I was sanding it, the eagle appeared. And since it appeared I thought that the Star of David would go well and I added it to the design. The eagle signifies inspiration, release from bondage, victory, longevity, speed, pride, father, and royalty. It’s often used as an emblem for powerful nations. Eagles are among the world's largest birds of prey. People often see them as living symbols of power, freedom, and transcendence. For many years people have taken Eagles as a symbol of beauty, bravery, courage, honor, pride, determination, and grace. The Star of David is the symbol most commonly linked to Judaism today but dates back to as early as the bronze age. There are a lot of ideas about where the Star of David gets its symbolic meaning. Some say it represents the idea that God rules the universe in all six directions: North, South, East, West, Up, and Down. Some say that the two triangles represent the balance between good and evil. And then there’s those that notice that there are 12 sides on the Star of David and that it represents the 12 tribes of Israel. “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)
- My Life Story...
Ever since i was a little girl i have loved creating and drawing. With all my heart i believe that God gives each of us a portion of talent and it's up to us to seek and find out what that is. I was very fortunate to tap into that gift at such an early age. I have never really had any formal training in jewelry making but because of my faith in God, I believe that he has been my teacher all these years. He has led and guided me in every piece of jewelry that I have created. (You tube and googling information at times certainly helped along the way too.) My point is, that I realized at a young age that I had the ability to create things and really enjoyed working with my hands. I found my niche as I went on a journey to create my first jewelry piece. Boy was I hooked as I saw how many types glass beads, stones and other materials were out their. Since creating that first pair of earrings and bracelet sixteen years has come and gone and the creative process keeps evolving for me. It's exciting to see how this shift has taken place now in creating eclectic and funky designs with vintage spoons, keys, tin cans and bullet casings.(Although my personal favorite designs are the "spiritual jewelry".) Having something you love doing is the thing that keep you going when life gets hard at times.. So go find that one thing that makes you happy... ;-)

Not only did I find some beautiful, unique jewelry pieces that get compliments but someone I felt I could trust to help me with repairs and creations, replacement, and modifications on fine as well as both sentimental and favorite costume jewelry pieces. She is full of terrific ideas! She also was incredibly helpful assisting me as I went through my mother’s costume jewelry to determine what to keep and repair or not. She made creative recommendations, such as making a memory box using some of Mom’s often used pieces that I can’t wear. Wilma’s a real treasure and so are her creations! She got the jewelry I purchased online to me very quickly and immediately began working on my repairs and modifications order, communicating through the process. I am eager to see the results. Expect them to be as beautiful as her original creations. I received compliments on the necklace I bought from her the first time I wore it! If you’re uncertain whether she’s legit or if the jewelry will stand up, don’t worry. Wilma’s a professional in every way!" - Margaret R. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Great and beautiful jewelry and received order promptly. Would highly recommend buy from Wilma’s wearable art!!!" - Michelle V. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I ordered several pieces from Wilma. I loved each and every one of them. I had just been to the Balloon Fiesta Expo and went through many jewelry booths. Wilma's jewelry was just as nice, if not nicer, at a much more affordable price." - Judith C. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I ordered several pieces of jewelry (mostly earrings). I bought them with the intention of giving them out as Christmas gifts. Unfortunately, that is not going to work because they are so nice that I decided to keep them all for myself! Each piece is so unique and beautifully done. You can't go wrong with Wilma!" -Patricia T.
