Treasures From My House to Yours
Nevermore Lane is a long-standing project. I’ve always been fascinated with Edgar Allen Poe and his works. I started multiple websites over the years and one-by-one, chipped away at them. A few years ago I stared YUM eating. I poured my heart and soul in to it. And, while I love cooking, it took me away from other types of creations. My heart lies with fiction and crafts. I find I am much more relaxed and at peace when doing these types of creations. When it came time to come up with a new website for more of a lifestyle feel, I started with names that would signify all things of the home. That is where ‘Lane” came from. I stared playing around with some of my favorite authors and fictional characters because the street I live on is a rather boring name. Nevermore just blurted out and I’ve been stuck on it ever since.
The jewelry side of Nevermore Lane is something that started in my teen years as a joint venture with my mother. We had a side business putting together broken jewelry; a side project that lasted many years. We put it on hold for a while, but now we are back in business.
We buy broken, damaged, estate sale, garage sale, wholesale, store returns, items people no longer want, thrift stores, and other pieces of jewelry. We repair, reuse, repurpose, rejuvenate, recycle, upcycle, clean, rip apart, recreate and put back together in our own design. We create something new out of something used.
If you happen to spot something in my store that looks like/similar something you’ve seen in a big chain store – it’s likely we actually recreated it. But, the majority of our pieces will end up being one-of-a-kind due to the creation process.
We also purchase bits, baubles and pieces from stores like Hobby Lobby, JoAnns and Michaels in order to add to our creations.
The woodworking side of the business is through my soon-to-be ex-husband. He’s been obsessed with creating goods out of wood since he was a wee little lad hanging out in his grandfathers garage. He took wood shop classes throughout his education when it was offered. Now, his obsession takes up 89% of the barn. We love pallet wood projects!

The sewing side to my business is just right around the corner. I’m dusting off my sewing machine and getting back to the basics.
Nevermore Lane is my home, my lifestyle.
