epicetera is located in the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico. All jewelry is designed and created by me, Pamela Stultz.
I am a single mother with 3 sons, the youngest is 17. My youngest son knows me well and named my studio. Pronounced e-peace-e-tera, it stands for "epic and etcetera". I'm a free-spirit from the 60's and 70's eras, and my individuality is reflected in my designs.

I enjoy Rockhounding (searching for gemstones in remote places) and I have learned a true appreciation for the natural beauty of these stones. A lot of my designs use gemstones in their natural form.
My passion is making jewelry. I believe jewelry should make a statement. It should be bold, sometimes funky, and fun to wear. Jewelry should be that item that glorifies even an old pair of faded jeans, and is able to invoke mood in the wearer. Jewelry should be able to tell a story about the wearer, without them having to say a word.
I create because I love to create. I started 30 years ago when I sold handmade designs to a boutique in Michigan. I was thrilled when Disney Productions bought some of my items to use in the movie "Tiger Town". My taste has changed over the years, but my desire to design and create has not.
I like colors from neutrals to brights. I love being outdoors...at the beach, in a forest, on a mountain, in the desert, or just walking in the rain. My favorite artists are usually chosen by color selection with a hint of mystery. I am always looking for unusual, unique beads and gemstones, and colors that appeal to me "at the moment." Certain colors will appeal to me at different times, depending on my mood.
Almost all of my designs are One of a Kind, or OOAK. My jewelry designs will come to mind in my sleep, when I'm out enjoying nature, or when I'm working on another piece. My beadboard is my palette. The beads and gemstones are the splashes of color that come together as a work of art.
My jewelry designs are placed in different collections, depending on what inspired them, or the statement they are intended to make.
