Let’s face it. Handcrafted jewelry has come a long way!

Luxury Pieces - Handmade Jewelry Collections Evolve

The Evolution

The earliest days of making handmade jewelry meant securing a truckload of pony beads and several yards of plastic cord, resulting in hours of entertainment and the most beautiful jewelry our pre-teen eyes had ever seen. Fast-forward a few years and we began stringing pounds of glass beads onto bead wire and honing our skills with the round nose pliers. (Who doesn’t love a fresh supply of 20-pound hemp cord?) Eventually, we took classes, studied artists, and opened our own shops.

The glass beads were replaced by precious stones, and the hemp was traded in for gold and silver. Even our eager enthusiasm for jewelry was traded in for a passion deepened by time.Still, regardless of the supplies or the projects, we prided ourselves on creating beautiful jewelry that constantly evolved to meet the needs of the person wearing it.

Where We’ve Been

Our mission from the earliest days of jewelry design–even before we realized we had a mission–was to create handmade pieces of art that were wearable and meaningful.

One of the many benefits of investing in handcrafted jewelry–as opposed to buying replicable factory-made pieces–is that we stamp our name on it and invest our lives into it. We spend hours dreaming of the next best thing. We take day after day experimenting with tools and supplies. We sharpen our skills and improve our techniques. It’s impossible to make the same piece of luxury jewelry twice.

Unlike the projects that depended on a carefully folded sheet of instructions, luxury jewelry is chartered by timeless design and unrivaled beauty.Jewelry, for us, is more than a job; it’s an adventure. Our ultimate destination is creating something you can wear with confidence that is as unique as you are.

Where We Are Now

Long gone are the days of investing in plastic craft kits or beading a string and calling it “designer wear.” Those days have been replaced by an era of luxury jewelry. Using precious metals of the highest caliber, we painstakingly craft jewelry that is equal parts beauty and quality. We create our jewelry to last.

Another noteworthy benefit of handcrafted luxury jewelry is that it is not one-size-fits all, literally or figuratively. Handmade jewelry can be as simple or extravagant as you want it to be. Colors are customizable and metals are interchangeable. You decide! The only non-negotiable is quality. We search for the best styles and materials and are not satisfied until we know each piece of jewelry is something we would wear ourselves.

We believe that luxury jewelry is more than simply an accessory. It is a message the person wearing it sends to the world. It speaks of who we are, where we’ve been, and where we hope to go.

Making handmade jewelry is truly the journey of a lifetime. The best part? We still get that rush of adrenaline–that unmistakable burst of creative energy–every time we pick up a pair of pliers.
