About Us

A little about me and how Rustic Passion Jewelry & Crafts began:

I'm Susan "Mikie" Taylor, the owner of Rustic Passion Jewelry and Crafts. I love to design and make jewelry, soaps, candles, handmade beads and whatever else inspires me to create. I have been creating custom handmade jewelry since 2005 when I became hooked on creating - jewelry in particular. Some people call crafting/creating a passion, but for me it's an addiction. In the autumn of 2010 I had the opportunity to devote more time to the hobby I love so much, and that was how Nana's Nic Nacs began. With a lot of thought and consideration, I re-branded the business in 2013 as Rustic Passion to match my style of products.

I am married to my best friend and soul mate, the proud mom of a beautiful daughter, step-mom of two great "kids" (adults now), and Nana to four grandchildren. I am also the very proud mother in law of a United States Soldier. We love to hunt, fish, shoot guns, and are drawn to the outdoors. It is a great source of inspiration to me in my creative process.

I am proud of all our military folks (the soldiers of course, but also their families who have to go through so much while separated from their loved ones). For this reason, we proudly offer free shipping on our "Hero Bracelets" that are shipped within the continental U.S. for active military and their family.

Please Note: Besides offering free shipping to active military on the Hero Bracelets, we also offer FREE SHIPPING to everyone on any total basket purchase of $50.00 or more.

Come in and browse around. I'm happy that you dropped by. If you see something you might like in a different color or maybe with a different bead or whatever... please don't be bashful. I will be happy to help you create just what you want, and if I can't do it, I will let you know. Send an email with the specifics of what you are looking for and let's see what we can do. There are also some other helpful links (Ring Sizer, Birthstone Information, etc.) at the very bottom of the page once you are on the "store" page that you might want to check out.

Also, if you see something you like on my website but it says it is "currently out of stock", no problem. Send me an email to see if I can make more. I may have the materials to make more.

You can also find me on these sites where I have many of the same items listed:
