Raleigh Handmade Jewelry and Gifts
Welcome to Beyond Words! My name is Dana Smith and I specialize in unique, handmade jewelry and gifts, many of which are made from repurposed materials such as scrabble tiles, dominoes and washers. While I specialize in jewelry, I also make magnets, bookmarks, compacts, pill boxes, purse hooks and ornaments. I began Beyond Words four years ago as a stress reliever and creative outlet after having my third child and becoming a stay at home mom. Being creative is my therapy. In addition to selling on Etsy, I also love participating in local festivals and craft shows in Raleigh/Cary/Apex. Check out my online store at http://www.beyondwords12.etsy.com or find my booth the next time you visit a festival or show in the area. My show schedule is always posted on the Beyond Words Facebook page.

I love making fun and colorful creations that become a part of people’s everyday lives and special memories. In my shop, you’ll find handmade mobiles, nursery and children’s decor, and more.
I have two great kids who keep me busy – as I create new designs that make me feel happy, I am reminded of the things I treasure most.
Frustrated that good vintage style dresses are either extremely fragile, the wrong shape for today’s bodies or too expensive, I turned to creating my own designs.
I started making clothes for my daughters back in the 1980s. They’re all grown up now, very much into the Vintage scene and my youngest asked if I could make her a dress.
So I returned to college, studied garment construction, pattern drafting and tailoring techniques, developing the skills to make any women/child a beautiful bespoke dress, jacket or outfit for any special occasion.
It’s so lovely to return to exhibiting at craft and vintage fairs, meeting so many new people.
And now I’ve started passing my skills on through a series of sewing classes; from beginners taking their first steps in sewing, to giving intermediates the confidence and experience they desire to create their own garments and designs.

This handmade paper bead roller holds your paper strip secure so you can wind a tight and consistent paper bead. The winding pin is a diameter of 1/8″. The solid wood 4″ handle is stained and varnished so that it’s easy to keep clean. The larger half inch diameter handle with a spiral groove keeps your grip secure as you wind. Color coded soft-red to indicate the size. The winding pin is approximately 1″ long and may very slightly as the tool is handmade.
As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I work with individuals and families to educate and empower them to use essential oils for their personal health and wellness. I chose dōTERRA because I knew I needed a way to keep my family healthy that didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. I found that option through the use of dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils which are completely safe and 100% natural.
Take control of your health and wellness needs and become a Wellness Advocate yourself. I will personally help guide you through your own path of discovery. Together we will determine the absolute best approach to a more balanced lifestyle for you.
Find your balance naturally.

moloi cement jewelry is handcrafted from a source of authentic and fierce, divine creativity that is inviting you to intentionally: Be Bold. Be Unique. Make a Statement.
May you be unapologetic in being your unique divine self!
There is something satisfying and grounding about working with cement. Working with material often associated with hardness and permanency in such a soft and gentle way made a powerful statement to me as I broke through traditional concepts and ideas for using cement.
Seeing it with fresh and curious eyes, made me realize what happens as I evolve through the nontraditional, free flowing creative process… a new shape, new form, a new way of being emerges from a divinely inspired space.
That is exactly what wearing these pieces of art invites you to do: break through traditional concepts and ideas and allow that divinely inspired space within you to emerge — like a flower breaking through the sidewalk.
The energy of wearing moloi cement jewelry invites you to…
- honor yourself from the place of evolutionary curiosity, always creating space for new ways of being, as growth occurs.
- look at creative ways you can express YOU and burst through the cemented places within yourself, encouraging your own blossoming.
- Stand boldly in your uniqueness. Bring softness to hard places. Be Gentle. Be Balanced.
What they are saying…
“I’ve gotten so many compliments.!!! They are beautiful and I just LOVE them!!! -Victoria (semi classics)
“I feel bold, courageous and grounded when I wear my earrings.” -Kimmy (ring buffalo horn)
Handcrafted small batches of candles, incense and home goods intentionally created with and for love, positivity and enjoyment.
Whatever you are needing in the moment…be intentional about creating an environment or enhancing your mood that is conducive for achieving just that!
“You have the best incense hands down! I don’t even want to burn my drawer full of previously purchased incense.” -Amy (cedar + saffron incense sticks)
“Absolutely LOVE the candles!! The smell is so wonderful; I can smell it in the room even when it’s not lit. I have one of the three wick cement bowl candles and it is my most favorite candle I have ever owned.” -Kirsten (cement candle)
