Owner and Designer, Barbara Foley. 

My passion for jewelry and accessories started long before my career in the Jewelry Industry.  I was in love with fashion and everything that went with it.  The challenge of accessorizing a simple black dress with what was in my closet or jewelry box was more fun than work. Playing with fabrics, jewelry and accessories came easy to me so it just made sense to follow that path as my career choice. 

Starting Perception Jewelry after 25 years of working for others, allowed me to still feed my passion while having a better family life and it has been a gift to be able to continue to do the work that I love.

I can’t define myself as just creative as I love to forecast trends and match clients with that perfect look. My studio is filled with sparkle! From hair accessories and jewelry to purses, sashes and veils. Perception Jewelry carries designs that are classic to modern to vintage and if you are looking for glamour, bohemian or romantic we have that too.

My job is complete when my clients find that perfect piece that will make them look and feel beautiful. "Personal touch" is what all my clients say about their visit. We have something for everyone and every budget. If we don’t have what you are looking for we will make sure that we help you find it. My tag line says it all. “More than the finishing touch…jewelry and accessories for all life’s special occasions.
