One-of-a-kind tangles of color, texture, and light.

Gossamer Tangles is an outgrowth of my deep fascination with color and texture. My roots are in the fiber arts. My mom and my grandma taught me to sew, embroider and crochet when I was a child. 

I've experimented with those techniques ever since. I love playing with different types of fiber, and combining fiber with other media, like metals, glass, paint, and even paper, to create bits of wearable art in the form of jewelry. I find that conceiving the design for a piece in my imagination, and then bringing it to life between my fingers, instills a unique mix of wonder and satisfaction. 

Every item I create is unique and one-of-a-kind. I love to make custom items. You will see some made-to-order necklaces in my shop that allow you to be part of the design process. Also, if you see something you like, but you'd prefer a different color, size, chain style, beads ... whatever, I will do my best to make the piece you want. I can create designs to complement particular colors or themes to meet your needs and your dreams (hey, that rhymes!). If you are interested in a custom creation, just get in touch and start a conversation through the form on the Contact Us page of this site or email me directly at angela [!at]

I offer free shipping via USPS on all items and I use eco-friendly mailing materials.  Jewelry is packaged in lovely, reusable, drawstring bags, appropriate for gifting. I can include a gift message or card, if you'd like -- just drop me a note with your order.

From Oscar Wilde's poem, In the Gold Room:
            .  .  .
Her gold hair fell on the wall of gold 
             Like the delicate gossamer tangles spun
On the burnished disk of the marigold,
           .  .  .
