About

Hopeless Romantic Starts Making Jewelry and Never Stops

It all started out with my mom. She sewed almost all my clothes in elementary school and was always fiddling around with fabric and her machine. Scraps laying here and there, the whir of the needle, and the late night lights burning as she put the finishing touches on a dress...

One of my first "big" projects was making a quilt when I was in elementary school. Now when I say "quilt" I mean "doll quilt"! I told her I wanted to make the squares 1 inch big. This was before I actually knew how to measure, I thought 1 inch was the length of my hand... I'm much smarter now, I promise!

From sewing I discovered the shiny world of seed beads and silver charms. There was no stopping me then! I made necklaces and bracelets and set up a little display at my parent's garage sale and tried to sell my wares to people who came through. I didn't sell much but it was so exciting to watch people pick up and touch the stuff I made and tell me it was pretty.

After attempting to sell my jewelry at garage sales and occasionally at my grandma's craft fair tables I got tired of adding things to my growing pile of handmade jewelry. I had this funny habit of making things but not wearing it in case someone else wanted it. For about three or four years at the end of high school and beginning of university I took a break from beading. I no longer could get away with looking cute and asking people to buy my stretchy bracelet but I had no where else to go forward with my craft.

Then someone told me about Etsy.

My first visit to the site astounded me. All these people are creative like me and actually sell stuff here? So. Cool.

Andddddd basically from that point until now has been the best and most rewarding creative experience of my life! It did take me a few months to gather the courage to actually set up a shop on Etsy, because let's be honest, showing your creative output to millions of strangers when, for the last 21 years your audience has been your immediate family, is a little terrifying.

An important part for me of setting up my shop was choosing a name. I'd attempted to come up with a title for my stuff when I was younger but nothing stuck, or it sounded weird to me. "Classically Romantic" eventually floated into my head and it fit perfectly. I'm a hopeless romantic, I love the arts and humanities, and I love classic things. My shop is an extension of my personality in every sense. I've often said you can vaguely track my mood through the items I list.

I don't have any official studio, workspace, or craft room yet, but I hope to one day have that! I always create at night and photograph in the day. I'm 100% a night owl and love staying up late watching a movie and making necklaces, earrings, bracelets and whatever else my heart is interested in.

So now I'm here, writing this story about my shop, what I do, and how things got started. I hope that you have enjoyed reading it and I hope that this is not the end, that there is still much more to be added...

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I accept custom order requests!

If you see something that you like, but would like it in a different colour, chain, lace, etc. go ahead and shoot me a convo with your request using the "Request custom item" link on the left sidebar of the shop.

If you need a gift for yourself or someone else but are not sure what you want I can work with you to design a custom piece.

I cannot guarantee I can fulfill all custom requests, but I will try my hardest to do what I can! It never hurts to inquire :)

Also, if you would like a short message or note to accompany the order (like if you are sending it as a gift to someone else) let me know!

Sizing details

Jewelry sizing (chain and earring lengths) are all listed in the listings. If I have missed one, as I am human, please just ask! I almost always reply well within 24 hours :)

Care instructions

All handmade jewelry should be kept dry and taken care of when worn. (As in don't yank on a chain or pull on a charm etc. Remember, jewelry is a delicate thing!)

Store plated silver or gold in a metal safe bag or in a jewelry box. Exposure to elements or open air can tarnish your jewelry over time. Bass metal jewelry (Brass, bronze etc) will tarnish quicker than higher quality metals and may cause allergic reactions or skin irritations in some wearers. Please contact me before ordering if you have any material questions!

Gift wrapping and packaging

All order will arrive with a Classically Romantic flourish! They are always wrapped for safety and cuteness above all else.

Unless requested, all orders are safely packaged to take up the least amount of space in the mail. So if you order three necklaces, they will be put into one box to conserve packaging materials and space. If you need additional wrapping (for example for bridesmaids jewelry) please let me know ahead of time and I can put together separate wrappings.

If you would like a short message or note to accompany the order (like if you are sending it as a gift to someone else) let me know!
