I love all things crafty. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved making things. Whether it was embroidery floss friendship bracelets or tiny furniture for my dollhouse, if it could be made, I tried it. Thankfully, my parents saw this and always encouraged it. Fast forward thirteen years to my 22nd birthday when my dad got me a gift card for a local craft store and I decided to try my hand at jewelry making. While I now look back on my first creations and cringe, my family and husband continued to encourage me. Eventually, I began to use my favorite materials- sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, and fresh water pearls. I honed in on my skill and actually started selling my jewelry! Over the last seven years, I’ve improved my skill and enjoy trying new techniques like my newest endeavor- hand-stamped jewelry.

I'm inspired by my two little girls, who love to play dress up and are always looking for something new and sparkly to accessorize with.

After moving to Charlotte, NC a year after my good friend, Kaitlin, we decided to combine our crafty talents and open this Etsy shop together. Until now, I've mostly sold at local craft shows, and to friends and family, so I’m excited for this new endeavor and I hope you enjoy checking out our little shop! Almost everything in our shop is customizable and we’d love to create something special just for you! Convo us with your ideas and I’m sure we can create something spectacular together!

Kaitlin -
Professionally I am trained as an Interior Designer, currently I practice as a Graphic Designer, and have always dabbled in different mediums. I was fortunate to have had a great art program in school, and had the opportunity to take a variety of classes including photography, drawing & painting, jewelry design and surface design. I'm passionate about photography, both digital and film, furniture and houseware design, accessories and painting. Because of my training though, my artistic side reveals itself in making things both functional and beautiful. I love to reinvent things from their original use. In relation to buildings, this is called adaptive reuse, and when I fill up the attic my husband calls it hoarding, but I love the challenge of transforming things that seem past their useful life into something new and beautiful.

I've also recently begun sewing and embroidering and am excited about taking my ideas to accessory design. I've been making things forever, and I'm really excited to be able to share my creations here on Etsy. Thanks for looking, and check back frequently for new listings!
