Welcome to The Smiling Turtle!

Welcome! I’m Lex. I make whimsical, sophisticated jewelry using beads and wire. I also make and sell stitch markers for knitting and crochet.

My favorite materials to make jewelry with are Swarovski crystal, gemstone beads, and sterling silver. I also love Czech glass coffee bean beads and spoon charms. I try to use fair trade materials and environmentally sustainable packaging whenever possible.

I sell some of the items I create on Etsy at smilingturtle.etsy.com. However, a lot of what I make doesn’t get listed on there – you can find more by going to The Smiling Turtle Facebook Page. 

If you’re local to White Plains, NY, please feel free to contact me and make an appointment – I love to show off what I’ve made!
