About Me

Welcome to Earthly Jewels, a Philippines based craft and handicrafts business owned and run by me, Pennylynn Ilagan. (People often call me by my nickname, Penny.)

I grew up in New Jersey and moved to the Philippines almost 10 years ago. I am blessed to be married to a wonderful husband and to be able to stay home to pursue my passion for crafting.

I love everything crafty from jewelry making, quilting, latch hook, photography, sewing, to so much more. I've always loved creating things and that's why I often jump around from craft to craft. What better satisfaction is there to start with raw materials and end up with a beautiful, handcrafted piece of jewelry or clothing or rug...depending on what mood I am in...and I sure am a moody crafter.

Sometimes, I get obsessed with certain materials or colors and create nonstop until I get the mood out of my system.

Right now, i have started to focus on my craft supplies and bead shop. Craft materials always brings me such inspiration and it excites me to be able to offer what i have collected online to other crafters and artists...  Offering Craft Supplies is a Joy
My longest "moods" revolve around beads and jewelry making. I have loved working with beads for over 20 years and make all sorts of jewelry.

I have a pretty good collection of beads from semiprecious stones, glass beads, plastic and acrylic beads, mother of pearl, pearls, and so on. I shop for beads often since, this is the easiest way for me to get inspired. Just being in a beadshop surrounded by millions and millions of colorful, sparkling beads truly gets my creative juices flowing. 

And for that very reason, i have decided to start selling beads and other craft supplies...they make me happy so, why not share the love, right? I mean, wouldn't you just love receiving a package of goodies right at your doorstep...pure JOY and INSPIRATION!!! And that's what i hope to bring to my customers with each order they receive
Personally i love to create charm bracelets. I love how I can load it with many beads of assorted colors and personalize them with specific types of charms. I also enjoy wearing them because of the substantial, chunky feel of the weight of the beads and the wonderful wispy sounds that it makes when the beads brush on one another. You have to try it yourself....

I have been selling my items locally here in the Philippines for years. I join a lot of bazaars and craft fairs during Christmas holidays. But, for the most part, I sell to both the local market and international customers using my website (http://www.earthlyjewelsbeads.com) and my facebook shop (http://www.facebook.com/earthlyjewelsbeads?ref=tn_tnmn)

I also accept custom orders for Beaded Wedding and Party Giveaways, as well as wholesale/bulk orders.

I have an Etsy shop where i sell my digital collage and i hope to add my other craft supplies and beads as well...

I love offering beads, charm and other craft supplies in hopes that they bring crafters all over the world as much happiness as it gives to me...
