About

Charm Bracelets, Necklaces, Handcrafted Jewelry, Personalized Jewelry, Engraved Jewelry

Dea, Artist, Designer and her Journey

I was raised in the Appalachian mountains of Northern Georgia on a self sustaining farm which had been in my family since 1863. My Great Grandmother and Grandmother were strong Quaker women who worked the farm during the day and believed in re-purposing everything. Our hand stitched clothing was made from flour sacks provided by the local grist mill and clothing oftentimes were made into quilts and blankets to keep us warm in the winter. It was a simple life, with no indoor plumbing or electricity.

Blackberry Designs Jewelry was named for the wild blackberries that grew in my beloved Georgia mountains and the half-moon pies my Great Grandmother would make in her cast iron skillet on a wood burning stove, treats to be enjoyed after a day of school.

In my college years I worked for a jewelry company assembling and designing their catalog line while obtaining a degree in Accounting. For the next several years my day job would be as an accountant while my evenings and weekends were spent pursuing different forms of art; painting, sculpting, textiles, ephemera and mixed media art while teaching art and chairing an Art Guild.

My life took a turn in 2002 when suddenly my beloved father became ill. Within 3 months he was passing away and I recall my last conversation with him on a stormy night in October 2002, where he implored me to leave the accounting field and pursue my art. He told me he loved me and "that I was a star and I would shine", I never spoke to him again and he passed away 3 days later. You will see stars throughout my designs to honor the words of this wise man.

After the passing of my father I collected things he had given me, one was charms from his travels with the airlines. I created a charm bracelet with images of my father and my beloved charms. Never knowing that my business would be born from this bracelet. Friends saw my bracelet and my business started in 2002, from great tragedy came a passion for personalized jewelry design. Listening to my father by 2004 I had left corporate America behind to pursue my jewelry and art full time.

It was important to me that jewelry I created for customers would have the same sustainability that I had grown up with and be engineered for comfort and design. The jewelry must never turn color, plated metals were out due to the short life span, tarnish and would be cherished for their lifetime to be handed down to their friends and family. After several years of working in sterling silver and gold, being unhappy with the price point I explored and tested many different metals coming across a stainless steel manufacturer of men's jewelry. I knew this was the answer to creating quality jewelry for women. Stainless steel has the beauty of vintage sterling silver and platinum with far more durability and I fell in love with this metal and it became my passion to learn everything I could about stainless and jewelry design.

The fashion of the 1940's and 1950's has always been a passion of mine. I collected many vintage pieces from that era and had some of the basic chains and components reproduced in stainless steel that is used throughout the Blackberry Designs line.

Sixteen years later and my passion for jewelry design has not slowed down. I have books and books of sketches and designs that I will never complete in my lifetime.

In the meantime, I wish you well on your Journey.

Supplies, Materials, Sustainability
Heirloom quality handcrafted jewelry that will last a lifetime. That's the beauty of lightweight, non tarnish, hypoallergenic and durable 316L stainless steel. We engineer out jewelry to be comfortable enough for daily wear. Your jewelry will never turn color or your skin with our line because we won't work in plated metals of any kind. For jewelry to be sustainable it must be quality that lasts for years.

What Materials are used to Handcraft my Jewelry?
Your chain, clasps, jump rings, bails, and other components are 316L jewelry grade stainless steel, which will never tarnish, wear off, change color, or rust. Jewelry grade stainless steel is harder and more durable that sterling, platinum and gold, and has the beautiful look of 1940's antique sterling silver and will last a lifetime. The crown frames and settings are sterling silver or 316L stainless steel.

The charms for my jewelry are a beautiful solid silver pewter or stainless steel, manufactured and cast in the US. They are guaranteed to be lead free. Pewter can last a lifetime and will never tarnish or turn. We won't use any charms manufactured outside of the USA. You will never find Tibetan charms, zinc alloy, or the host of other circumspect plated metals in our jewelry. All our crystals are Swarovski® the diamond of the crystal industry.

The quality of our charms, materials, and crystals is unsurpassed for durability and wear. I use these alternative metals to insure that you charm bracelets, jewelry wears like Heirloom quality, and will look just as beautiful 20 years from today, as the day you received it.
