The open circles necklaces are beautiful. I got a bunch for family members as bridal party gifts last-minute and was worried they wouldn't arrive in time for my wedding. I received them within a week of ordering and couldn't be more thrilled with how they look. I can't wait to gift these. Thank you!!

The Love Links necklace is beautiful and super unique. I got this as a thank you present for my wedding officiant and was worried it wouldn't arrive in time for my wedding. I received the necklace within a week of ordering and couldn't be more thrilled with how it looks. I can't wait to gift this. Thank you!!

About

I've been making and selling jewelry since elementary school, but it wasn't until after college that I tried my hand at making a career of it.

I started making jewelry when I was about 10 or 11 – I used "Friendly Plastic," a very popular crafting material of the 80's – and made earrings, which I peddled up and down my street out of my Caboodle for $3-$5 a pair. I even sold my jewelry to a local boutique!

I studied art in college and upon graduating, I thought the only way to make a living off of art was to paint, and I just didn't have the passion for painting. I worked in art galleries and tried being a sales rep for a couple of years. I started making jewelry again on the side for extra money while I was working two jobs in 2001. After a few years as my side business grew, I decided there was no time like the present to take my jewelry-making hobby to the next level. I applied to craft shows, developed a website, and rigorously worked to improve my jewelry. By listening to what customers liked and disliked at craft shows, I was really able to tweak my line and make it better.

Fast forward a few years later, I quit my job in May 2008 and have done jewelry full time ever since. I've traveled to countless craft shows (including 9 Renegade Craft Fairs), developed my wholesale business, got married, had two babies and am loving every crazy busy minute! I work in a little studio in downtown Nashville with a few lovely assistants. Together we make jewelry, listen to music, and chit chat the day away.

Testimonials from a few happy customers:

"Hi there!
I saw your beautiful jewelry a month ago at the crafts fair in Athens. I couldn't buy anything then, but I was able to order the gold truffle earrings off your website a few days ago. They just arrived today- all wrapped up nice like a gift! They are so beautiful! I just cannot stop looking at them!

Everything on your website is stunning, and I hope to order one of the puddle necklaces soon! Keep up the completely fabulous job!

Thanks!
Charlotte"

"Beth,
Just wanted to thank you for sending such a beautiful, quality
products so quickly. Your website was easy to use and navigate, your quick response to fulfillment was appreciated, and your notification of shipment was fantastic! All 8 of my Yearbook seniors absolutely LOVED their necklaces and put them on immediately. You were great to work with and I look forward to thanking you in person some time (maybe Pink Palace if you do that show again).

Keep up the beautiful creations! I look forward to another of my own personal F&Z purchases in the near future!
