Handmade Artists Forum Featured Artist: Dream Again Jewelry

Hailing from Modesto, California, self taught jeweler, Stephenie Gardella, of Dream Again Jewelry has been making  jewelry for twenty years now. Her love for "girlie" things began as a young child. 
In Stephenie's words, "I admit I was spoiled, with pretty, girly things - I was the firstborn girl, and apparently, my mom was waiting for me for quite a while. This is where I learned to love and appreciate pretty things, including jewelry. So you see, I really never stood a chance, I was born to appreciate pretty things. Eventually I made my own pretty things." 
And that she did. From these early beginnings, a feminine, romantic style bloomed and Stephenie incorporates it beautifully into her lovely, romantic jewelry. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Victorian Gothic Cameo Necklace
Wire wrapped Jasper Stone Pendant  Necklace
