About the Jeweler

Sharie McCune now lives in Alpharetta, Georgia but has also resided for various periods of time in:  Spring Valley, New Jersey, Yonezawa and Tokyo, Japan, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Wheaton, Illinois, Upland, Indiana and Memphis, Tennessee.  Her interest in beading began as a casual hobby and gradually intensified after continued exposure to worldwide vintage and ethnic beads. She remains fascinated by bead stories and legends and the universal connection throughout time and between disparate peoples to these very personal and creative individual artistic expressions. Her site name, "Mizu," is actually the Japanese word for "water."

About the Jewelry

Each piece of jewelry has been handcrafted and is one of a kind. An eclectic mix of distinctive beads were chosen for their fine workmanship, unique eye-appeal, and, in many cases, their antiquity. I hope you will agree with me that this current use maintains their value and honors both the original makers and/or former wearers.

All prices cited are for current bracelet and necklace length. Bracelet and necklace length are adjustable (for a restringing fee of $5 per piece) and custom earrings are also available. The cost of extension is impossible to predetermine and will necessarily depend both upon the availability and type of bead(s) used. Commissions mutually agreed upon and exceeding $300.00 will require a 50% deposit in advance. Satisfaction is guaranteed. Gift boxes provided.

About Payments

Payment may be rendered by: money order, cashier's check, personal check, cash (sent by registered mail), or PayPal.  Standard shipping (within the continental United States) and insurance is included in the price of the jewelry.  Expedited shipping and air mail shipping outside the continental United States will necessarily be added to the purchase price.

Please contact me with any questions or if you are interested in purchasing a piece of jewelry. References available upon request.
