Creativity Inspired By Chaos
I began thinking about opening my shop when I kept being asked by people where I got necklaces I was wearing. It had never dawned on me to sell anything. I just made stuff...just because I liked it. I tried to wrap my brain around how I could manage my full time " pay my bills" job with starting a site. The absolute chaos that would ensue! A friend of mine reminded me that I was good in that department- the way my creative chaotic brain would pull ideas out of thin air. I didn't have a reply. I just stopped saying 'how' and started saying 'will'.

My name is Amber and I am a self taught jewelry/accessories designer from Baltimore, Md. “I never met a craft I didn’t like” is my motto but my true first love was sewing. Over the years I have expanded that love to jewelry making as well.
I believe that the clothes and accessories we wear are a form of artistic expression. We all own a favorite shirt or necklace that when we wear it, it can transform us. I was not finding jewelry or clothing that "spoke" to me or that I felt was allowing me to express who I was or how I felt. I struck out on an adventure to teach myself sewing and jewelry design so I could remedy this problem and the rest is history.
I hope you find my shop offers you fun alternatives that can assist you in expressing who you are and add a lil’ something to your own personal style.

Additional policies and FAQs
If there is a design you love but really wanted a different color or a maybe a longer chain, please feel free to email me and I will see what I can do. Some of my pieces are made with vintage stock so that means I have limited quantities or colors. If I have it though, I'll make it for ya!
Order Filling Times
I have some made to order items in my shop which take a little longer than others. Please check your item description for the time frame if it is a made to order item. I want your item to be awesome and that can require a little extra time. Knowing that in a little studio in Baltimore your necklace is being made with lots of tlc is what makes buying handmade so much fun.
