The evolution of my hands.

I wish I had some amazing story to tell but the truth is, like many others, I found my passion for jewelry making through a time of need. I was between jobs and although I always had a passion for creating things with my hands, at the time people valued mainstream more than uniqueness.

I grew up in the jewelry business but more through the production aspect. My Dad owned his own metal casting and soldering factory in downtown NYC. He would fill all kinds of orders for all kinds of people, I began to notice a pattern with all of his clients, a pattern I myself sort of fell into as I grew older and found myself yearning to create. We are all misfits of some sort. Creating Unique items that either sell. . . or don't. But it doesn't really matter because all in all it's art and that is the soul satisfying part of it.

Because it's an art to me, I struggle with each season but come out feeling like a part of me has been willingly nestled into each piece. That is why my customers are like friends and treated as such. I hand make each piece myself, constructing and de-constructing each piece as necessary till it's perfect.

I have learned through the evolution of my work that my way isn't so much unconventional as it is. . . Misfit.

. . . and sometimes Misfit is just perfect!

Welcome to Misfit Bride.

Every piece has a story to tell. . .what's yours?


• Do not get your jewelry wet in the bath or shower.
• Avoid spraying perfume directly on your jewelry during wear as well as applying perfume directly around your neck or wrist (specific spots where the jewelry will rest on you). Perfumes contain strong reactant chemicals which can cause the plating on your beautiful jewelry to tarnish.
• To maintain your pearls and crystals as sparkly and bright as possible, be sure to polish with a soft sided dry polishing rag before wear for maximum glitz.
• Last and probably most important, plese treat your jewelry with the utmost care and gentleness. Paying more for an item does not mean it cannot or will not tangle with other pieces if threwn into a box with other jewelry.
I make sure to use the best possible materials and components so that you are not just buying a regular piece of jewelry but investing in a piece that will be part of your special day and can be part of so much more.


Please note that all resin pieces used in my shop are made by me, I also make my own molds for casting resin therefore I am able to provide you with unique one of a kind items.

The resin colors used in my shop are also my own mix of colors. They have been made through trial and error and some errors actually became a part of my line.

If there are any specific colors you would like me to create to match your bridal party or wedding theme, please convo me with all the details and know that the customizatiion of already existing designs will come with an extra fee of $40 if the color does not already exist in my shop.
Also note that this fee includes the cost of resin used in trial and error to achieve the color you would like.

Because the customization process is very difficult to perfectly match it is recommended that you use colors that already exist in my library to avoid any issues.

I use a special pearlizing process in my resin casting that produces a subtle shimmer of each color.


In order to provide you with the absolute best quality for your purchase, all items in my shop are made to order, the pieces photographed in my shop are for that reason only.
Upon an order I will hand-make your piece myself and therefore require 3-5 days before mailing you item.

If I do not have all the materials in house and will need to order any components I will require 7-14 days before the order is completed and mailed. Of course in cases such as these you will be informed immediately.


I do take special orders, so if you require 5 pairs of my vintage garden earrings for your bridal party, please convo me for a grouped price and shipping rate as opposed to ordering 5 seperate pairs of earrings.
*this is just an example*

Also if more than one of the same necklace is required this will also require additional time as I only keep a limited amount of materials in-house.
In some cases I will have to have my metal caster make more pieces and plate them for special orders, this adds to how special your day is, when items are being specifically made just for you and your big day.


My designs are speperated into collections however they are made to be interchangeable if you like. Meaning a piece from my Ernestina collection can just as easily be worn with something from my vintage garden collection and vice versa.
Each season, there will be 2 collections introduced simoltaniously.
so please stop by frequently even if just to take a peak!
