Beautiful Artwork!

I purchased a Scarlet Butterfly necklace for my wife for her birthday. Beautiful artwork. The butterfly has always been a symbol for her and your necklace allows her to see their beauty and their symbolism every time she wears your art.

Wearable Memory!

My “Teddy” pendant is so cute! What a talented artist! She did a great job taking the image of my dog from a picture taken on my phone to a wearable memory I can enjoy when I’m away from him at school.

Unique & Breathtaking!

I am so in love with my Peacock Butterfly Pendant Necklace! It is truly breathtaking! People are always commenting on the striking statement it makes. I wear it with everything as it can complement every style and adds beauty & class to my wardrobe. The detail in the design is brilliant! I love my one of a kind butterfly as an expression of the unique creativity the artist weaves into each of her pieces.

Work of Art

Shirley is such an incredibly talented artist!! Her pieces are true one of a kind works of art. The piece she made for me is absolutely stunning and the level of detail and design is amazing. She truly puts her heart and soul into each and every pieces of art she creates!!

Personality & Likeness!

I am so impressed with the likeness of my “Honey”. This beautiful pendant is a fun way to take my pup with me everywhere I go. The artist really captured Honey’s personality.

Custom Storytelling!

As a corporate professional by day and Harley biker during my free time, I love that these custom designed Warrior Wings Cufflinks allow me to incorporate my passion for the open road into my workdays. My affinity for riding and my life verse, Isaiah 40:31, were masterfully combined into a stunning storytelling accent to my professional wardrobe. The artist has distinguished these cufflinks from my others with a custom representation of me.

Matches Perfectly!

I bought a pair of earrings that I just love and matched perfectly to a shirt that I had just bought. I bought the earrings at the Dallas Craft Show and look forward to going to more shows this year where Shirley will be featuring her jewelry.

Treasured Family Heirloom!

I purchased a Texas Hatband for my husband for Christmas-and he loved it. Said I really surprised him this year! We had to make a special trip into town to go look at a brand new hat for this special hat band! This will be treasured family heirloom! Thank you for your artistry! (Oh and I LOVE the earrings I bought myself…um, I’m mean the earrings Santa put under the tree for me! Stunning!)

Works of Art!

I want to let you know how much I love your butterflies. I own three. They are such special little works of art. The workmanship is world class. They’re just beautiful.

Unique Gift

I was looking for a different and if possible a unique birthday gift for my wife.  I learned of SMJ and realized quickly, here was a variety of uniquely designed and crafted jewelry.  I selected a pair of cloisonné earrings that I thought was strikingly attractive.

One of a Kind

Shirley, your pieces continue to be pieces of art work.  I recently purchased one of your hat bands as a Christmas present.  The artistry and originality is “one of a kind” and a gift to be treasured for years to come. 

I’m a huge fan of not only your artistry but the artist herself.  Thank you.

Stops People in their Tracks!

After standing next to Shirley wearing one of her butterflies I was sold. I could not take my eyes off of it. I had never seen a butterfly pendant that seemed as if it could possibly fly right off your chest. I ordered a green swallow tail, but could not stop there. I now have a butterfly, a heart pendant and earrings. Her work stops people in their tracks. One piece cannot possibly be enough for anyone!!

-Lynda H.

Craftsmanship & Uniqueness

I had seen several pieces of Shirley’s beautiful work and really admired the craftsmanship as well as the uniqueness of her pieces. I have purchased cufflinks in her Texas design for our son as a birthday present. They are something he wouldn’t see elsewhere–while showing his Texas pride!

-Helen D.

Unbelievably Gorgeous

Shirley is the real deal, a one of a kind artist. She is so creative and intuitive and truly knows how to create the perfect piece for literally anyone. The butterfly she sent me is unbelievably gorgeous and hand crafted to perfection. It’s truly both a unique work of art and a treasured keepsake. Shirley puts her whole heart into everything she does, and you can see it in her works.

-Christine C.

Beautiful Butterfly

Shirley has been wonderful, working with me on the right chain for my beautiful butterfly.  I can’t thank her enough for all her time and patience.

Lisa loves your creation. She wears it often. Thanks!

Superb!

Thank you so very much for the beautiful necklaces. I thought the blue one would be the prettiest because I like blue, with Roberta’s coloring the gold one is superb. Thank you for making my wife happy… you made a happy point in our day!

An incredible artist & person!

Shirley Matteson is an incredible artist and an even more incredible person. Each of her unique butterfly necklaces are stunning. Both my daughter and grandson have a rare disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa. Children with this disease are sometimes known as “butterfly children” because their skin is as fragile as a butterfly’s wings. Butterflies are a symbol of hope and often associated with a transformation or triumph. Shirley created a butterfly 🦋 necklace for me in the colors of the Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Partnership logo. EBRP funds research into finding a treatment and cure for EB. I wear it with so much love and hope for a triumph over this disease. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Will be treasured for years to come!

The cufflinks are very nice and D was excited to open them on Christmas Day and wear them. He has a black tie event in March and is planning to wear them for that. The unique design and incredible workmanship make these a very beautiful item that will be treasured for years to come.

Gets compliments abuot it every time she goes out of the house!

“My wife absolutely loves the gold butterfly. She tells me that she gets compliments about it every time she goes out of the house. I was with her yesterday when a waitress said how much she loved it. Thanks again for creating such a beautiful work of art.“

Uniqueness & Quality!

The piece was better than I expected, as it’s hard to tell online exactly how it will look. My wife absolutely loved it, and has worn it several times. It’s has garnished several comments about its uniqueness and its quality. I will likely buy from you guys again because of your designs that fit my wife’s BoHo personality.

We have barely taken the pieces off!

The gold butterfly and silver baby are truly outstanding.
The craftsmanship and quality of both are superb.
We bought the Silver baby Lily for our daughter Lilly and she just loved opening it and was thrilled on Christmas morning!
We have barely taken the pieces off and have received so many compliments everywhere we go!!! You are such a talented artist and we are grateful to own your pieces!!

Exceeded Expectations!

These days few things in life exceed expectations, however, from the time I sent my order in all the way through to her follow up after the holidays, it couldn’t have been any better. Always great to do business with good folks!
