About

The Story of Fine Heart

Ever since I could walk, I have been making things with my hands. I have always loved tinkering, designing and creating. From legos to doll clothes to splattering candle wax, art was always a form of entertainment.

Why? Simply, I am a product of my family tree. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors, ministers, musicians and artists. So, I become an architect and combine the technical with the arts and run my own business with a side of being an artist incognito. I sing, I play guitar, I write poetry, I paint, I scribble, I sketch and I draw.

At first, designing and creating jewelry was a form of therapy from my day job. Before I knew it, my attempt at relaxation turned into Fine Heart: my very own jewelry boutique. I started selling my lovingly handmade jewelry at wine festivals, street fairs and art markets. Soon after, gift boutiques called, spas commissioned, and brides came in droves.

Apparently, my love affair with all things sparkly also touched a deep emotional need for many women. This was the frosting on the already delicious cake. I love working on custom orders with clients and creating something unique just for them, their occasion, their friends, and their loved ones.

Opening a shop on Etsy however, saved my marriage. Being an introvert, selling my jewelry in person was a tad daunting. My dear husband (an extrovert) was recruited to be my roadie and main festival greeter. Sure, it was fun for the first 100 times or so. But then, he wanted his weekends back, and I still had this insane passion for making an inordinate amount of sparkly things. I couldn’t wear them all and I still had to sell them.

One day, someone told me about Etsy: and here, I found Fine Heart’s home. I still do an occasional festival or two and my husband still occasionally helps. However, I did discover that while drinking wine and buying jewelry while wearing a sun dress and floppy hat is cool, it is so much more fun when you can drink wine, wear pajamas and click and click and click and view and savor at 2 AM or anytime you want to your heart's content.

925 Sterling Silver Jewelry need some care to retain its original bright shine. The jewelry you receive is placed in a box which is purposed to help retain its original shine. When not wearing, keep the jewelry in the box.

To clean sterling silver jewelry with freshwater pearls or gemstones, use a polishing cloth. Please do not use any type of "cleaning dip" to renew the silver’s bright shine.
