marjoriemillerby Marjorie Miller

Hello, if you don't already know by now, as millions surely already do, my name is Marjorie. People know me as a bead jewelry designer with an obsessive penchant for gemstones, pearls, more gemstones, more pearls, even more gemstones and even more pearls, and, of course, all the other stuff, like chain, wire, sterling silver, and you know what else, I don't have to tell you. And if you have heard that I spend more time on the internet than God, well, you might be right. I am always on the lookout for the next great thing in jewelry. It could be yours. (Actually, it should be mine, but you know me....) I hang out at Land of Odds (, and you can reach me there anytime. Point my nose in the right direction -- jewelry on-line that people will want to talk about. And, darling, you better believe this is my real nose. The jewelry ain't fake either. Let me take your hand, and guide your eye to see the treasures I have found ....


playfully opulent hand-crafted jewelry

Lin White-Schroeder’s website is perfect. She designs her perfect “playfully opulent” jewelry with all the perfect gemstones and perfect pearls etc. Lin’s perfect philosophy plays perfectly with her perfect presentation of the history, mythology and other associations of gemstones. My g*d Lin is the perfect jewelry designer. I thought that was my job. Yikes Lin borrowed my ambition.

In 2002, Lin White-Schroeder wed her life-long fascination with color, gems and jewelry to action when she launched glimmerdream and began designing “playfully opulent hand-crafted jewelry.”

Lin creates her “playfully opulent ” designs in the charming Rose Garden neighborhood of north San Jose, California. There she lives with her husband — chief supporter and “partner in adventure.” — with whom she lovingly shares space with two West Highland Terriers and three cats.

Her end result — celebrated by women for whom jewelry is a passion, as well as an expression of self and style, confidence and color — is jewelry that creates an ambiance of charm, romance, and enchantment.

Lin works with a wide range of precious and semi-precious gems that she collects in a wealth of colors, sizes, shapes and textures, as well as precious metals. Making use of sterling silver and 22K vermeil, she reserves 18K gold — with its rich deep yellow evoking the riches of the ancient world — for her most sumptuous ‘dreams.
