About

delightful jewelry, hand made in Chicago

I launched Rock Candy by Helen in 2005, first showing jewelry at artist studios and group shows, then opening up an Etsy shop in 2008. It took a while for me to commit to Etsy.

During that time distinct jewelry lines have evolved: Le Cadeau (whimsical images under resin) & Briey Poste (vintage postage stamps under glass). I also collaborate with my husband, musician & artist Jon Langford, to create unique and affordable art pendants. In addition to the ready-to-wear lines, I also make bespoke pieces using pearls & gems and upcycled vintage treasures.

Each piece of jewelry is designed and individually hand-crafted by me in my Chicago studio.

In 2010, Rock Candy by Helen won the “Designer of Distinction” award.

    I was trained as an architect and worked in that field for 15 years, but my love of jewelry goes back to childhood. From a young age, I was busy combining different media to make wearable art.

Welcome to Rock Candy by Helen. I make jewelry by hand, using genuine pearls and gemstones, gorgeous up-cycled vintage components and one-of-a-kind artwork. I scour everyplace for raw material treasures to work with.

I collaborate with my husband-artist and musician Jon Langford on art pendants. He paints fantastic originals and I print his work on mother-of-pearl or acrylic pendants. We also collaborate on decorative candles. (Check out more artwork by Jon Langford here:
http://www.yarddog.com/products-page/langford-jon/)

I revision vintage pieces, combining elements from different periods into something fresh & modern. I also take clients own jewelry and remodel it. This has been very satisfying both to me and my clients. I get to great new beautiful things and my clients get to wear updated jewelry that often has sentimental meaning.
