tweet & peep jewelry
As a young girl, I always loved accessories (mostly jewelry and bags). My mom will tell you I always carried a purse stocked with my lip glosses. As an adult, I still love to accessorize! My husband will tell you how I’m obsessed with new bags…I have quite a collection of handmade, grey leather bags. And of course, I still love jewelry.
A few years ago, I started making bracelets for my family and friends as gifts. I then decided to share my pieces with others. I thought long and hard about a name to represent my jewelry. My father-in-law has a nickname for everyone so his creativity was the inspiration for my shop name. He came up with the nickname Tweety for my daughter Tyler and Peepers for my niece Briana. I wanted to use a name that was special to me and how better to represent my jewelry than to use the nicknames of my two favorite girls….Hence the name Tweet & Peep (for short). Tyler loves to help make bracelets with me, sell at pop-ups, and pick out her favorites to show shoppers while Briana uses her great fashion sense to pick out beads & loves to give her input on my creations.
I've always enjoyed using my hands and am normally to go-to person to fix things from my friends and even family. So jewelry making somewhat comes natural to me. I love mixing metals, leather, wood, and gold finishes to create my jewelry.
I started participating in markets in 2017 and love getting out there meeting new makers, customers, and showing my jewelry off to new people.
