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.

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.
