Modern Contemporary Minimalist Jewelry for Women
Hi, I’m Viola and I’m the founder and designer of Bodacious Goods. Influenced by new methods of crafting jewelry and with over 20 years experience in arts and crafts, I have come full circle as a jewelry designer. In 2014, I discovered bronze metal clay and fell in love with this method of creating.
Bronze metal clay allows a tremendous range to experiment and test new designs without wasting material. Designs that fall short of my expectations are broken down and repurposed until a new piece is perfect. The finished raw clay pieces are fired in my kiln and the clay pieces are then transformed into hardened bronze metal.
I named my shop Bodacious Goods because the word “bodacious” means admirable, attractive, bold and impressive. I design jewelry with that concept in mind for women who want to make a positive impression, extend confidence, have a strong sense of self and who want to control their own destiny. Each piece of jewelry is named in honor of prominent women, both past and present.
Born and raised in Chicago, I have also had the wonderful opportunity to experience life by living in two other fabulous cities, New York City (which I miss immensely) and Atlanta, Georgia. At present, I live in fun-loving Las Vegas, where the strip is always exciting and never gets old.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging
Each item is enclosed in a gift box and tied with a ribbon. A note care with your own message can be included upon request.
Bronze and fine silver jewelry, over time, will get a green patina over the surface. To help minimize this process, we suggest storing your jewelry in sealed plastic bags. Keep your jewelry away from water and high humidity. Clean jewelry with a soft polishing cloth or clean with basic natural ingredients.
Here is a recipe to clean your jewelry piece with basic natural ingredients:
2 tablespoons of baking soda
Small clean white lint-free cloth
Squeeze and add the lemon to the baking soda to make a paste. Using your fingers or a small section of the white cloth rub the paste completely over the piece. Keep rubbing and add more paste until the bronze returns to its original brilliance. Rinse under warm running water.
