~*JAMIE NOEL!*~ Have you seen her OUTSTANDING art to wear?

May I please share with you the wondrous works of the skilled and talented ~*Jamie Noel*~


~*Please visit her shop and see what she is up to!*~
Click on her name above or below.


I enjoy creating unusual and unique items that have a vintage theme.
My inspiration comes from things I love…old toys and games, vintage circus and boardwalks, old books, vintage penny arcade machines, okay… basically anything old!
Things that fascinated me as a child seem to find their way into my work.
I really enjoy creating my 'interactive' pieces.
It has become a passion that consumes most of my waking hours - how to make the new design I dreamed up actually work.
Most of these pieces are created through much trial and error, (more error!), and usually I make about 4 prototypes before I have a design that I am happy with.
I want my pieces to be whimsical, fun and creative yet well designed and sturdy to bring years of enjoyment.
I hope you enjoy wearing (and playing with) my pieces as much as I love creating them!

About me:
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and now live in the California foothills of "gold country". (Between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.)
I am married to a very logical and analytical husband, who deserves sainthood for putting up with my years of 'creative' housekeeping! (lots of laughter and fun, not a lot of organization or clean laundry!)
My biggest joy in life is our two teenage daughters.
I am extremely proud of what genuinely wonderful people they are.
They are also both hilarious and unique characters and they keep me laughing 24 hours a day. They are my biggest inspiration.

She made the above piece as a special order.

Let her know that you saw her work on my blog!
I am such a fan of Jamie Noel.

OMG! A woman after my own heart! I do solder jewelry, and have several game ones in my head, just haven't figured out all the mechanical ends of it! After seeing her work, I must get busy! It is possible! Thanks for introducing her to us.

p.s. no, no, I WANT to experience the diamond glaze.. your charm exchange pushed me to FINALLY try it. I don't normally use the shtuff and thought how fun this would be.. I';m a HUGE nut for texture, can't wait to get my grimy hands on it! -wink-
