Lots of new pieces!

Wow…it’s been FOREVER since I’ve updated this. BAD BLOGGER…No cookie! Speaking of cookies, we’ve got those now too…but more on that later.

So, I think the easiest way to do this will be to give you some pictures to look at…each one links to the respective Etsy page if it’s currently for sale. You can get a better look at any of these pieces over there.

Is it Aztec? I’m really not sure…


Red Rocks Necklace

Decaying Orbit Necklace 

Along with those, we’ve done a couple other pieces we’ll show off…some of these are custom, others have already sold. Now, I do custom orders so if you see something you like here please drop us a line at and we’d be happy to see what we can do for you!





New product! We are also doing Designer Doggie Treats, made to order! They’re $7.99 a bag, and so far we’re doing them for both SMALL and MEDIUM breeds. For more info, click on the link picture below.


That’s about it for now. If you have questions or comments, please send them along to us. We’ve got some adorable hand made snowman Christmas stockings coming in the next few days, so stay tuned!

Fantastic Silver Beads…

il_fullxfull.68223644[1] Wow. I love this stuff…just came across this today, and think I may be ordering soon. I would love to make this kind of stuff, but don’t have the setup for it. Visit her shop.

New work: Spring-y Silver/Copper Bracelet

Ok, I really like this piece. I may make one for myself…but I’m not much IMG_4224of a bracelet guy. I’m just a big fan of how the sterling silver and copper look together. And the tiger eye stone of this has a really nice depth (that you can’t really catch on camera. It’s 9-inches long, and very appropriate for either a man or a lady (Mother’s Day is coming…) Hop on over to our Etsy shop to look at a few more pics of this little item.

Welcome to our humble home on the Web!

Well, we finally did it! Oh, you probably don’t care a whole lot…you didn’t even know we were talking about it. :-)

We’ve finally set up our own little web site and Etsy storefront. I’m so proud of us…Scraps & Jewels is finally a reality!

So…who are we? “We” are Tory and Elicia Larson. Tory makes custom handmade jewelry, primarily from wire and beads. His work is rather understated with a Celtic influence. Elicia is a scrapbooker extraordinaire (this is being written by Tory…so I can brag her up). She specializes in beautiful, lush work and does everything from greeting cards and invitations to lovely scrapbook journals…and anything else in-between.

Our goal with Scraps & Jewels is to share our art with the world. And hopefully, some of you will like it enough to purchase a few pieces. We’d sure like that. ;-)

We’re just beginning to build up inventory on our Etsy shop. Swing by and give it a visit. Today we plan to post some lovely handmade copper chain and a copper and sterling silver chain maille bracelet. Later this week, look for a sterling handmade chain augmented with Swarovski (vegan) pearls and jet-black Swarovski crystal. Elicia’s working on a couple of charming designs for baby announcements that I can’t wait to show you.
