Announcement    Dear Brave Souls,
In this fast-paced, climb-to-the-top world, I am always humbled that you have chosen to visit the quiet rooftop spire – the hope and home of BraveChickJewelry on Etsy; that you came to experience a new yet familiar vista of life through my jewelry designs.

The moment of creation is a quiet purpose-filling experience, my hands express my heart… molding, designing, placement … and then mysteriously it comes together – my heart sings – and that’s when I know it is done. I love the personality of each piece. I hold the hope of sharing each piece with another who experience the beauty that it expresses.

It is my greatest desire that my jewelry inspires you, giving you strength and hope. Handcrafted with love and joy, each piece is unique, sculpted to imbue the wearer with vibration of the fullness of the universe. Choose a piece that speaks to you – do you sense the sweetness, gracefulness, and softness of the supreme Creator? Or does the piece speak of the unpredictability, passion and profoundness of a higher spirit? All pieces were made to acknowledge your uniqueness and your place in this world. Every piece was made to cultivate HOPE and LOVE in your life.

A message of hope through inspiration of design:

Throughout my life I have always struggled with a sense of belonging, especially as an African-America artist. It has been lonely and difficult when I found myself unable to fit into a predefined mold or be a reflection of those around me. Like many of you, I have had my share of hardships. With the help of friends and family I was able to escape a violent relationship. Like the finest gold, hardships refine and can purify. My art has become the safest and most expressive way to share the courage and strength of my deeper self with the world. May the wearing of it give you added courage and strength.

10% of Brave Chick proceeds are currently donated to Next Door Solutions, a non-profit domestic abuse shelter located in Northern California that has been helping the community for 50 years. To learn more about NDS go to www.NextDoorSolutions.org

Frequently asked questions
Stones & Materials

I use REAL stones, not plastic or glass. They are beautiful and delicate. They hold up well in jewelry when treated with care. If you drop your earrings, ring or necklace on hard surfaces like travertine, granite, cement, tile,or metal to name a few, it will cause damage or breakage. This is not a craftsmanship issue. I provide backs to earrings to keep them from slipping out. Necklaces have a secure clasp and stay fastened around the neck.

Please treat your jewelry with care and they will last for years and years.

Photographed Jewelry

Most photos are samples only. You will NOT receive the exact piece pictured UNLESS it is stated in the listing that it is one of a kind. I photograph most jewelry using a macro lens to show detail. Please refer to the sizing in the listing for accurate size.

If you have any questions or special requests I will be happy to try to accommodate them. Please use Etsy's contact feature for inquiries.
