that's Headley! Jewerly Designs!

Meet Ginny Headley Maserang owner and designer of that's Headley! Jewelry Designs!Ginny specializes in handcrafted Artisan Jewelry in Semi-Precious Gemstones and Sterling Silver.She learned her craft mostly by self-taught methods of books, magazines, and other written tutorials, but also at the Springfield Art Association under the instruction of Meghan Tippy.People who have inspired her include her sister, Lydia; her friend, Kathy; her silversmith instructor, Meghan; her favorite bead shop owner, Kathy; and all the awesome jewelry artisans on Etsy.

Ginny has been beading since junior high and working more seriously with wire and simple forged silver pieces for two years.Ginny’s design style comes from the natural stones that she loves, with a sense of boldness and color, but in balance so as not to overpower the wearer. Unique, one-of-a-kind. She has been selling on Etsy since March 2006.

What she wants you to noticed about her work is her commitment to detail, proportion, color, quality materials and workmanship, and ultimately wearability.What Ginny likes most about selling on Etsy is when it happens! Having a shop is so very easy to do on Etsy, but she doesn’t really cater to the disposable-trendy or impulse buyers, so she doesn’t make a sale everyday, or even every week.
