And that’s precisely what Jeweled Blossoms is for – beautiful, wearable designs with the unparalleled handmade quality you won’t find in the average department store. Each of these pieces is versatile for everyday wear, but special enough for the meaningful moments in your life.

These earrings are absolutely gorgeous and I love wearing them. The shipping was VERY quick (and around the holidays, nothing ships quickly!) and the earrings are of high quality and they look beautiful when I wear them. I would buy from this seller again!

About

Simple lovely jewelry to celebrate all the moments in your life.

| Hello, hello! |

I’m Catherine, owner and designer of Jeweled Blossoms.

| My Story |

I took the long road to jewelry making. I tried to be normal, just like everyone else I knew. I started my collegiate education in Biology, spending long days and afternoons with dry textbooks filled with flow charts of metabolic cycles, DNA replication and organic chemistry molecules. I pipetted bits of this and that and found my heart was never really in it. I found I had always been in love with people and moved towards Sociology, where I worked with the local homeless shelters, wrote heaps of essays and counseled my peers. In the end, that too, could not satisfy me. I found a 9-5 job occupied my mind for a few hours of the day, but still I felt a thirst for something more – and one day I found it.

It’s the most gratifying thing, finding something, THE something you’ve been looking for without even knowing that you were looking for it. I make things now because it nourishes the part of me I ignored for so long. I make things because every girl deserves a bit of beauty in her life. I make things because I don’t think I could bear not making things ever again.

| Inspiration & Mission |

I have always, for as long as I can remember, been fascinated by people and relationships. I love all of the things that bring people from wildly different cultures, classes, and religions closer together and figuring out why certain things push us apart. I strongly believe in the importance of relationships – family, friends, significant others.

Jewelry can be the medium in which we express the meaning of our relationships to one another. Sometimes it can be a simply token of friendship, a proclamation of eternal love or the reminder of those that are lost to us. It’s a way of helping us to remember people, places and times in our lives in such a lovely, simple way. It can also serve to remind ourselves that we are beautiful or that we have overcome difficult moments in our lives.

I’m so grateful to be a part of these interactions. My greatest desire is that you find something in my shop that touches you, your experiences, or conveys a hope, a dream, a wish you want to give to someone close to you. That you find a piece that means something to you, as it meant to me in the making. I hope you find a bit of beauty you can carry with you through all your days.

Additional policies and FAQs
| Process |

To me, no piece of jewelry is complete without a story. Sometimes the stories come to me before the piece, and other times it’s just the opposite. I believe everything has a meaning, and jewelry in particular, always has a story to tell.
______________________________________________________________

| Materials |

All materials are selected by hand. Each stone or bead is selected for color and quality, and I use only natural stones as much as possible, believing that the beauty of nature cannot be matched.

Metals are sterling silver, gold-fill, vermeil or antique brass. No silver or gold-plated metals are used unless explicitly stated within each listing.

______________________________________________________________

| Custom Requests |

I am always happy to address custom requests. These may be as simple as extending the length of a necklace or earrings, exchanging a particular stone or accent bead on any product in my shop or more complicated such as creating something complete new. Simple substitutions for stones, beads, etc, are usually covered in the price of the item and such customizations may be listed in the description for each item. More complicated requests involving additional materials or labor may incur additional fees.

Not all custom requests may be honored. I f a request for custom work does not fit in with my design aesthetic, I may not be able to fulfill it. I may not understand exactly what it is you’re asking for and will most likely not be able to produce something that you’re going to love. And it’s important to me that you LOVE whatever you leave my shop with. So! With this in mind, I am happy to entertain all of your requests and if you’re unsure, send a convo and we’ll discuss.
