Heavenly City™ Jewelry
Handmade genuine gemstone jewelry
In 2010, I launched Heavenly City™ Jewelry. Based on spiritual principles, each piece is a unique design with deep meaning to the giver and the recipient.
I have degrees in both photography and art. For thirteen years I was a professional photographer exclusively. In 1997, when my first child was born, I launched my own web design business so I could work from home. While continuing my photography work and web design business, I also taught myself web programming and became a computer expert. In the meantime, I continued to dabble in various arts and crafts for recreation. Later I had an idea that I should combine these skills with my faith and design inspirational jewelry. Thus was born Heavenly City Jewelry.
These days I wear many hats, including: jewelry designer, web designer, internet application programmer (Perl, ASP, PSP, SQL, Access, etc.), computer consultant, professional photographer, craft designer, and artist.
My latest passion is gardening; I take it quite seriously. My friends are always asking to see my yard, questioning me about garden design and plant management. I sense a new career possibility coming on!
I still do web design! I prefer the design phase because I am an artist, but I am also available to do coding and periodic website updates and revisions.
I have a small shop called Gardenina where I sell craft items I have created. You can find
all manner of interesting things here from time to time, such as handmade home
decor items, garden ornaments, paintings and sculptures, and miscellaneous
I specialize in still-life photography: if you have a product to sell, I can photograph it to perfection. I can do commissioned photographic art for your home or office. I am also available for fun and artsy on-location photography for your family photos and personal portraits.
