Hi there...my name is Ronnie. I am the founder of Whimsy Within®. After several years as a mousedrawn graphic artist I finally turned my lifelong love affair with gemstones and beads into a professional career as a jewelry designer.
I opened RadianTrace Jewelry® in 2004. My collection of beads grew from a few small containers on a table into several shelves in a separate room filled with every type of bead, finding & tool imagineable. My handcrafted pieces contain components which have been carefully selected from all over the world.
Local customers and fellow jewelry designers frequently ask me where I find my unique supplies. After hearing these requests over and over I finally decided to open my own supply shop and share my treasure trove with others.
I intend to work closely with local lapidarists, and gemstone suppliers in order to offer high quality gemstones and precision cut cabachons.
I will also eventually offer a nice selection of high quality tools for beading, wire work, and metalsmithing.
Check out the Books section where you will find a list of books on every topic imagineable to help you explore and expand on your jewelry making skills. If you order your books from Amazon by clicking on the links in my Amazon Book Store I receive points towards gift certificates.
I use these gift certificates to purchase books that I read and then do reviews on my Ronnie Unplugged Blog. I also write Featured Artisan articles and progress reports on technical skills I'm learning.
I am located in the Fraser Valley of beautiful British Columbia Canada, and although most of my customers are local, I sell Internationally to customers all over the world.
It is my greatest hope that Whimsy Within becomes your one stop shop for all your jewelry making needs.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come back again soon,
