Pronounced "Impatience", and named after the little ground-covering flower, Impatiens Designs hopes to be your favourite costume jewelry boutique. I use the highest quality materials possible in my pieces, and the only pieces that make it here are the ones that I'm happy with and would wear myself.
I've been a jeweler for nearly 20 years now, and i'm still learning. I started out beading, and it's what I always come back to, despite my love of all things wire-wrapped. I've flirted with many a technique, including soldering, metal work, and even porcelain bead making, but I always come back to the wire and beading.
Many of my pieces are one of a kind, simply because I don't purchase most supplies in wholesale quantities. I buy small runs of findings and pre-shaped/-cut/-polished beads or gemstones, and tend to buy only enough to do the project I have in mind. This means that most of the time, once an item is purchased, it's gone forever.
I don't make or use many patterns, as my design method is incredibly organic and tends to be governed more by feel than anything. Often, the end result is nothing like what I started out thinking of.
I work in a variety of materials, including vintage components and beads, modern components and beads, as well as gemstones and precious metals. I have a habit of taking pieces and parts that you wouldn't normally think of together, and blending them into my pieces in ways that, while not entirely unheard of, are somewhat unexpected.
