Unique Jewelry & Accessories

I am ever advancing my skills and perspectives, I'm only as good as my last piece of art or jewel.  I really enjoy sharing my knowledge with others.  


Seeing what other jewelry designers create rarely interests me. I am inspired by the beads or the bits in front of me while I work.

I love jewelry that sparks a conversation, perhaps you meet a new friend because of it.  I LOVE creating jewelry that you will enjoy each time you wear it.  Post a photo on my Facebook page of you wearing your favorite Gay Isber.


Naturally curious about the natural world and traveling around in it fills my soul.  I have two Master's Degrees and various other degrees because I love learning new things!


You will see photos of me and my sons mixed in with the art and jewels.  You will also see my homes and my stores.  I wish to thank all of those included in the photos - from the photographers, models, stylists, makeup artist, etc.  

I have over 60,000 photos to pick from for this website and I could only choose about 500.  I love all of the photos and am proud of each one. Find more photos of my creations on IG @sugargayisber and @makingwowjewelry

These photos are in no particular order - just random.
