About

Unique, Handmade Products Made by a Mother and Daughter Team

ObscureGems started as a mother daughter team. My daughter Frances is now in college so that leaves me. I do treasure any time we do get to work together.

Most of the items in my shop have a duplicate that are being used in everyday life. I do this not only because my friends, family and, myself like my work but to make sure of it's quality. You will find I create items that can be used in every day however they have an unique feel to them. While I am working on a piece I invission someone wearing or using the piece so it can have a personal feel to it. I do use my own patterns and no two items are exactly the same since they are handmade.

My inspiration comes from colors and textures both found in nature and the material world. I aim to create items that will fit into our customers' lives and have their own personalities. ObscureGems as a name came from a desire to create the unexpected whether it be by way of materials, colors, textures, or uses.

I now am in Florida with my husband Chris and our son Alex. We have three cats and a dog. Our cats get upset with me because they aren't allowed on my lap while I work. I make it up to them by making them toys. I can't say that I don't have any help with my shop. Chris will run to the post office for me and help with any technical problems. Both Chris and Alex help out at artisan shows. Sometimes I use Alex as a model and I hope someday he'll want to help with photography.

I appreciate each and every one of our customers. Without them, I would not be able to continue to do what we love to the extent that Etsy allows us. I love sending mail, and it gives me a great joy every time I send out a package. It is amazing to me that elsewhere in the world someone else is using or wearing one of my creations. Etsy has allowed me to cross oceans and continents without leaving my home!

    I am the owner of Obscuregems and I crochet for the shop as well as create jewelry. I love the opportunity Etsy gives me to use my degree in the arts as well as share what I love with the world.

    Right now I am away attending Ringling College of Art and Design for a BFA in Illustration so I've cut back on my involvement in the shop, however I try to keep up on communication as much as I can.

Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders:
Got an idea? We'd love to hear it! Being able to custom make something just for you would be a pleasure.
Some of our pieces are one of a kind, however many items (like many of our crochet items) can be altered or offered in different colors. Please just allow a little extra time for your order if we have to order a material for you.
-Please do not ask us to dismantle our jewelry or products if you would like only one part. Feel free to inquire about creating something similar with those qualities-we want to create original pieces just for you!

If you are interested in bulk orders, feel free to contact us and we will let you know price, shipment options, and other info you may wish to know.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. If you have a problem with your order, please contact us personally via Etsy conversation or email rather than using the feedback option so that we can try to help fix what went wrong.

We love feedback from our customers so that we can keep growing and evolving, so if you have anything to say about your order, we would love to hear it.
