Welcome to Back Porch Jewelry!

Back Porch Jewelry is not assembly line jewelry. Many of the pieces on this site can be ordered and can be made like the picture depending on the availability of the beads. I do not keep an inventory of these pieces so when you order a piece of jewelry it is made for you and can be customized however you want. If you see a piece of jewelry you like but need it in a different color, size, gauge or length that can be done. Just drop me an email at MyBackPorchJewelry@gmail.com and we will work together to make the perfect piece of jewelry for you. I also have some items for sale from my shop on Etsy.

Katie's Bracelet/Necklace

My son Ryan asked me to make the "fruity pebbles" necklace in black and white for his girlfriend Katie. When I figured out he was referring to the Kumihimo Shell necklace I bought some black and white beads for him to choose from. He liked these black czech facetted crystals and the white pearls.

I decided to make this so she could wear it as a bracelet or a necklace. The bracelet has a toggle clasp which can attach to the toggle clasp at each end of the chain.

The kumihimo pattern is a great pattern. Even though this was made the same way as the "fruity pebbles" necklace it had a very different look since it was made with different shaped beads.

I definitely need to make one of these for me!

Black and Green Beaded Bracelet

Everyone that sees the kumihimo bracelet in earth tones loves it so I decided to do one in blacks with a hint of green. It turned out great. Now I need to make some earrings to go with it.

It is made with black and Picasso czech glass faceted beads and square and round seed beads. These are woven tightly together into a spiral pattern. It really is beautiful. I have lots in my closet to wear with this bracelet!

Bracelet - $30

More Wave Bracelets

The wave bracelets are really pretty bracelets. It is hard to get the full beauty of this style of bracelet. I really need to photograph someone wearing these bracelets.

Here are just a couple made in shades of browns and green.

This tan and green bracelet is a great accent piece. It will go well with fall and winter outfits as well as the lighter spring outfits.

The deep green and rich browns in these stones are absolutely beautiful. It is a bracelet that everyone will notice!

These bracelets are $30.

Wrapped Wire Bracelets

Here's a couple pictures of two special orders I made recently. The Purple and Gold Wire Bracelet is one of my best selling bracelets on Etsy. These were made like that bracelet but in colors requested by the customer. They turned out beautiful! The focal bead is a foil line glass bead the shimmers and the pearls make this bracelet very classy.

Bracelet - $20

Jens Pind Sterling Silver Bracelet - Chainmaille

This is a very traditional sterling silver bracelet. It looks great by itself or worn with other bracelets. It is one of my favorite bracelets. I wear this one and the Byzantine bracelet or Spiral bracelet almost every day. They are great casual or just enough with that pretty black dress.

Bracelet (16 gauge) - Due to varying price of sterling silver, email me for price

(This bracelet can be made in other gauges if you would like a finer or heavier bracelet.)

Daisy Bracelet - Chainmaille

This is a beautiful sterling silver bracelet that is truly eye catching. It is a heavy bracelet made with 3 layers of sterling silver 18 gauge rings arranged in a flower pattern. There is about 2 ounces of sterling rings in this bracelet.

All the girls wanted one of these for Christmas last year. Two of them wanted them as watch bands and this is the other one as a bracelet.

These are on sterling silver wires and are finished with light pink and purple Swarovski crystals and sterling silver spacer beads.
