Welcome to The Noisy Cricket!
I am so glad you stopped by. I hope you enjoy browsing as much as I enjoy creating each piece. This company was started to share with you the creative energy I have pent up. I spend a lot of time sketching and working with metal, fabric, and other materials to release that energy. As my family has witnessed, sometimes I am so excited it just bubbles out.
When I am not shaping my ideas into reality, I am a mom of four wonderfully entertaining children, married to my best friend Mark, and the caretaker of a small menagerie of animals. We live in a small city on the upper Mississippi river and enjoy the slow pace of life. Whether I am sitting at my sewing machine or soldering and hammering metal, I find joy in what I am doing.
Each jewelry piece is created by hand from a variety of materials. This custom work includes hammering, soldering, hand cut, and stamping; all coming together in the one of a kind piece delivered to you with a set of instructions and a polishing cloth for taking care of your piece.
I hope you find as much joy in the pieces you decide to make your own as I did in creating them. I really feel a connection with you when I take your request and make it into the real thing.
