Stacey Hodges of Harmony Expressed

Harmony Expressed is one of a kind hand crafted jewelry. My goal was to make quality pieces at an affordable price.

I love love colorful beads with a history.  Most of my jewelry is made with African glass beads because to me they are beautiful and rich and make my heart smile.
I’ve always loved jewelry, I don’t even have to wear it, I just love to look at it. Maybe I came by it honestly – my grandmother was the queen of jewelry with her Sears Catalog, lol. She used to let us explore her jewelry box and many times leave with a shiny treasure. Looking at jewelry just never gets old to me, still to this day every time I go into my mom’s room I find myself in her jewelry box.

So how did I go from looking to making? I fell in love with a pair of cowrie shell earrings, but at the time they were out my price range, so I had the bright idea to try and make them. However, I never stopped and I gathered the confidence from friends and family liked them.  In 2011 I opened an Etsy shop and loved it. Life got busy and I closed the shop and stopped making things, but my amazing friends have kept encouraging me over the years to pick it back up and here I am today!

Creating is relaxing and brings me such joy and peace, which is where the name of my business, “Harmony Expressed” comes from.
