About

Designed and Handmade by Marla Bee

My name is Marla and I am a young aspiring jewelry artist.

My goal and dream was to go to school for jewelry design, and I got in! I am currently attending the Fashion Institute of Technology for Jewelry Design and Gemology. Every purchase you make helps me pay for school!

I put a lot of time into researching the history and fun facts of stones and symbols and writing my descriptions, so please give them a close read if you would like to learn more about the jewelry you are looking at. If you purchase an item that has a "meaning" you like, please feel free to purchase a "meaning card" along with your piece. You can find the listing by typing "meaning card" in the search bar.

Please understand that these stones or symbols are symbolic and the descriptions are based on history, tradition, and legend. They are not meant to treat any ailments of the body, heart, mind, or otherwise, however I do encourage you to find something that has a personal meaning to you, and if you do, I would love to hear your story.

All my items are designed and handmade by me. I also take care of photographing, listing, researching, packing, and shipping my items.

Every item you see in my shop will only be made once. Your new item will be an honest to goodness one of a kind unique piece of wearable art.

Most of my items contain some sort of vintage or eco-friendly element to them. I like to use vintage beads and findings, and left behind metal scraps, and often find myself making old jewelry into something new and shiny.

All vintage supplies are cleaned before reuse with either baking soda and peroxide or rubbing alcohol, and all stretchy bracelets are restrung to ensure you are getting the newest and cleanest item possible.

Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or sizing requirements.

Welcome to my shop! All the items you see in here are only made by me in quantities one or two of a kinds, meaning you will always be buying a unique piece!

Many of the items I make include vintage materials that were passed down to me from my Great Great Aunt, meaning that some of the items may have materials circa the 1940's and the 1950's! Many of these materials are no longer made the same way or even made at all, once again ensuring you will have a beautiful and unique piece to wear.

To ensure all my items are durable, every item (except for earrings) goes through a 3 day wear and tear test in clean conditions to make sure that the item is good quality and won't break under normal circumstances. They are then cleaned, polished, and ready to be sold. All stretchy bracelets are restrung before sending them out to make sure you are getting them in the best new condition possible.
