When You Need Some Grit with Your Glamour

My Diamonds and Coal brand really started as an accident. I have always been creative, thanks to my Grandma - as soon as I could hold knitting needles and crochet hooks, she put them in my hands. In 2011, I started creating pieces of jewelry that I wanted to wear, because it was hard to find affordable pieces that fit my style in the marketplace.

As I wore these pieces, more and more people started complimenting me on them, and asking me where they could purchase their own. A friend suggested I get business cards made, and from there it just steamrolled. I am always looking to learn new techniques, and have also taken on the task of learning about marketing, photography, shipping, etc. It has been a wild ride, and I love doing it. I don't get much sleep, but that's okay, because I'm learning more and more each day (and night!).

This is my passion. This is why I don't get enough sleep. This is why I spend most of my hours in my studio/office. This is why there are never enough hours in the day for me. But I LOVE IT.

The name Diamonds and Coal came about because they are two things always associated together, but they convey the exact opposite in their imagery. There is a push and a pull. My pieces are beautiful yet edgy, dainty yet fierce ….you always get glamour mixed with edge and grit. A little bit of sass with your sparkle. Diamonds and Coal describes jewelry coming together in that harmonious way that you might not expect. "When You Need Some Grit With Your Glamour" really says it all.

Everything I make is lovingly done by hand, so each piece is going to be it's own unique treasure. I like to think they all have their own spark of personality, and each piece tells a story. I want you to feel special when wearing my designs, knowing that yours is a one of a kind piece. I don't limit myself to materials - from spikes and studs to hearts and feathers, bullets and shell casings, you will find all kinds of pieces in my shop.
