In 2006, I got engaged and began planning my wedding. I decided that it would be cheaper in the long run, to just make my own bridal jewelry. This decision turned into the addiction and thriving business that is Nightmaiden Designs.
I began with simple beading designs, as I had previously done jewelry design when I was in high school. So I tried to remember what I had done then and learn a better way to make quality pieces.
Once I got into the swing of things, Nightmaiden Designs was born. I chose the name Nightmaiden because I love the night and am a total nightowl and most of my best designs will come to me in the early hours of the morning. I wasn't yet married, so technically still a maiden.
After listing my first 5 pieces, overnight, 3 of those 5 sold. I was instantly hooked with such a feeling of accomplishment. I felt like I was worth something, the things that I created were enjoyed.
I expanded from beaded items to chainmaille and that lead to a new addiction. My themes have narrowed a bit to specializing in gothic and metaphysical designs. However, I will design whatever project my muse pops into my head. I don't want to hit a wall with only being known to do one style. I like to change things up and do what feels right and what people will love.
I am a fiery spirit who loves creating. I am a college student working for a B.S. in Environmental Science with a minor in Biological Sciences. I am passionate about everything I do and my studio and creations are no different.
The pieces that I make are very special and have special meanings. I love to work on things that are inspired by nature and magick and then I bring that feeling to you.

Additional policies and FAQs
*If I have to order special materials, I may ask for a 25% deposit. This is to help cover the cost and will be deducted from the final cost of the finished piece.
Most of my designs can be altered for size. I usually make a piece at the standard sizing so that I can show you the photo of the piece on a model. However, I do realize that not everyone is the same size and I can accommodate you in any fashion. All you have to do is let me know if you need an extension or a piece taken in. This will not be any additional cost.
***Color and Stones***
As I do a lot of work with color and gemstones, I can usually alter the piece to fit your theme or stone. If you prefer something with a more personal meaning for you, I will do my best to find that material if I don't already have it.
