Jewelry by Sande Gene designs & creates hand-crafted Artisan Jewelry which makes each wearer feel beautiful when dressed casually, for business, or a formal evening out.  My designs are simple & exquisite for the diva in all of us.  All of my pieces are Professionally Finished, not just completed.  I use vintage, re-purposed & recycled materials along with precious metals & natural materials to design & create my very unique, one-of-a-kind, jewelry for women who are able to wear it with grace & dignity.  Are you one of these women?  

   At the beginning of 2011, I decided to really get serious about building a business.  A name became a problem.  That is when I decided to use the names of my deceased daughters.  I played with combinations until I found one that was unique & not being used by anyone else.  MyCarolAnne was born & is finding a place in the real world of Artisan Jewelry.  Carol passed of cancer & Anne passed in an accident.  I still have one daughter living with her husband, 5 grand-children, & 8 great-grand-children. 
  In 2019 I was forced into bankruptcy where I lost everything I had built with MyCarolAnne, so I changed my business name to Jewelry by Sande Gene, hosted it on Shopify & began all over.
  I still use vintage, re-purposed & recycled materials to save as much old, used jewelry from destruction as I can.  I am expanding my learning to seed beads and all of the wonderful exciting possibilities that they offer.  And, using fishing line to create my seed bead items, also makes them ‘water-proof’.

Jewelry by Sande Gene is a one family in home business.  No smoking, one cat.  Every piece is professional finished before shipping.   We want every item to shine when it arrives.  Thank you
