At this time I would like to welcome my close friend and one of my first teachers of metal-smithing and jewelry creation, Nicole Gariepy, as our partner in business, head of production and design of FantaSea Jewelry! I also welcome my husband, Brad, to the FantaSea team! He's been involved behind the scenes from day one, and now is 100% involved in the and business and behind the scenes work of FantaSea Jewelry.

I (Liz) was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder in January of 2012. This has made running the production side of a hand crafted jewelry business impossible for me. Nicole beings her extensive experience as a bench jeweler and "rock scientist" and has stepped in to do all production and design alongside me. This partnership will allow for more design and creative time, and expansion of the jewelry line. Welcome, Nicole! We will continue to build our dream and creative vision together!

All of the gemstones you see in our jewelry were personally hand selected by us, because we saw something beautiful in each and every one. We use recycled and refined sterling silver whenever possible in our designs and gift boxes and tissue paper for packaging is made from recycled materials as well.

All designs are original and copyrighted.
