A Little About Me
My passion behind my jewelry is to help with making a women feel beautiful and confident. I believe it stems from battling insecurity issues my entire life. My battles are why the name SnobishDesign was born. When I was thinking of names for my shop I came up with SnobishDesign as a little joke to myself for I am completely opposite of what the name may imply. It is also why I purposely chose to misspell the 'snobish' part of SnobishDesign. Accurate spelling is snobbish. Today the name SnobishDesign has a very different meaning to me. It's a reminder of all the struggles and battles I have overcome. That a dream can be achieved with a lot of hard work and motivation. That somehow, however slight, maybe I can pass on my victories to another woman that feels better about…

It's a reminder of all the struggles and battles I have overcome. That a dream can be achieved with a lot of hard work and motivation. That somehow, however slight, maybe I can pass on my victories to another woman that feels better about herself when wearing my designs. It is no longer a joke to me, it is hope.

More About Me
I am a successful Quality Assurance manager by trade in the software industry. I started making jewelry and knitting (my other passion) as a hobby but now I have a hard time doing anything else. I just want to knit and make jewelry all day, every day. Growing up I was never an artsy and/or creative person. I wanted to be, but did not have the confidence in myself. Plus it wasn't encouraged at home. I'm self taught and began getting an inkling that I may have some talent when strangers began complimenting my work. Once friends and family realized how popular my pieces were, they went on a quest to persuade in opening a shop. For many years my insecurities had the better of me. However, In 2010 I took a deep breath and opened SnobishDesign here on Etsy. I can't explain the joy I feel when I receive all the wonderful feedback from my customers. I find it to be very therapeutic knowing I contributed to a woman feeling good about herself, no matter how small it is.

My desire is for the woman wearing my designs to feel pretty and confident. For my customers to have an experience that's positive, satisfying, and one of ease.

All jewelry in SnobishDesign is designed and handmade by me. I'm inspired by Dainty, Personalized, and Glamorous Bridal designs. I only use high quality, high end material for my pieces. Materials I use a lot are sterling silver and gold metals, genuine high quality precious gems and gemstones. I love purchasing my materials from other shops on Etsy.

Thanks to all my Etsy customers for making this dream such a successful and fulfilling reality!!
