My name is Irene Helms. I opened Distinctive Jewels and Accessories in April 2007 and have eventually shortened my on-line name to DJAjewels. I design and create handmade beaded jewelry and accessories in my home studio. My Etsy shop is where I sell my jewelry designs. While I especially love to create vintage and Victorian style jewelry, I will also occasionally experiment with more modern and eclectic pieces.
The purpose of my blog is to provide a forum for discussion about handmade beaded jewelry of all kinds. Please feel free to comment on any of my jewelry designs or posts as my blog evolves.
