Life Is Too Short to Wear Boring

Handmade, wearable, artisan jewelry

Welcome to designs2c! I'm Paula Nettleship, a Pittsburgh-based artist and bead weaver behind designs2c, a line of handmade artisan jewelry. My art reflects my love of color and texture. I use the highest quality materials and thread to create jewelry with a modern vintage feel that is meant to be worn.

  • Paula’s earrings are beautiful and the photos don’t quite do her work justice. I love her eye for color and pattern where one style of earring can have so many different ‘looks’. I have become a fast fan!

  • Paula is a gem! The necklace is gorgeous and incredibly well-crafted. It arrived very timely and was beautifully packaged. My sister will love it.

  • My wife and I have been purchasing Paula's jewelry for many years now. Not only is the product made with great skill and quality but the attention and care that Paula puts into each piece is remarkable. In addition she is a wonderful person to know and work with.
