Welcome to California Chic and Sexy Jewelry!
I started my business in January 2010 while attending Graduate School at Northwestern University in Chicago; in the midst of writing hundreds of pages in an extremely intelligent and competitive environment, I very suddenly became ill with an undiagnosable autoimmune disorder that for the first time in my life made me sit down and take a deep breath. I've always been a big fan of beautiful, shiny gemstones, and creating jewelry was something I had loved my entire life, so with the urging of my friends and months after I had "opened" my empty Etsy shop, I finally decided to sit on my butt and design design design, listing 20 items and beginning my new relationship with being a jewelry artisan! I recently graduated with my MFA (yay!), and I've now returned home to California, the source for much of my artistic inspiration!…
