About the Artist:

     Jan Davenport is a wife, a mom of 1, grandmother of 2, chauffer, chief cook and bottle washer, horse lover (Saddlebreds in particular), artist, jewelry designer, and all around bizigal! She’s very thorough in all that she does, and last but not least, she’s a woman who loves pretty jewelry, and enjoys making it so much that she’s often up until the wee hours of the morning making certain that every bead, every charm, and every spacer is placed exactly where it belongs. Much thought and planning goes into each of these hand made creations because it’s Jan’s nature to see to every detail – and if it’s not exactly as it should be, she’s been known to disassemble the whole design and re-work it!

From Jan Davenport:

     Making jewelry was started out of necessity. I love saddlebreds and I wanted some unusual affordable jewelry to wear. Having been an artsy crafty person for many years, I started out by finding a saddlebred charm and bought a handful of beads. It took me forever to get the bracelet like I wanted it but was pleased with the results. A few friends saw the bracelet and suggested that I do some more. So, I located a wonderful lady who now makes my saddlebred and photo charms. I began to buy beads, silver and all kinds of interesting things. I wanted a special touch to my jewelry and keychains so I decided to 

reproduce some of my original art work from tote bags that I had painted in the past. I also use the wonderful artwork of Jeanne Schoborg.


     I enjoy making the jewelry and other items. Putting colors together is like doing a painting except you do it with beads.  This is the reason that so many of my items are one or two of a kind. The wire connecting the charms and beads to the bracelets is all hand wrapped and whenever I can I attach things with split rings which are like keychain rings. I don’t want someone losing one of their pretty beads or charms. The

charms are non-tarnishing and sealed with a professional waterproof glass-like resin.


      As time and enthusiasm progressed, Saddlebred Fancies was created.


     I would like to thank my customers of the past year and my friends for all the encouragement and support they have given me.
