vintage inspired, handmade modern jewelry

My childhood fascination for fashion and art grew immensely while studying Fine Art and Art History in college, particularly once I’d chosen my master’s work in the history of decorative accessories and objects. However, in the spring of 2000, I found myself creating jewelry for my wedding after being disappointed in what was available. I started making jewelry for friends and then for friends of friends. What began as a side gig while preparing for masters and doctoral work became my daily obsession. I created Stylish Girl for people everywhere who appreciate vintage patterns and designs but are looking for pieces that are wearable within our modern lives.

Surrounded and encouraged by fellow artists in my arts district community, Stylish Girl dove into the art festival circuit. After maintaining a brisk art festival schedule for nearly a decade, I developed my work into more cohesive lines and began adding local wholesale tradeshows in order to expand my clientele. Since 2017, I have expanded my tradeshow schedule to include NYNOW and the Las Vegas Market, bringing my collections to independent stores across the country.

Stylish Girl is lovingly handmade in my Chicago home studio with a trio of dovetail collections that combine sterling silver, 14k goldfill, antique brass, and stainless steel metals with natural gemstones, pearls, or crystals. The Crochet collection fuses my grandmother’s vintage-inspired crochet patterns with precious metals and gemstones. The Metal collection is influenced by my machinist father, who taught me to appreciate design and the inherent beauty of things constructed by hand: the lines of a teapot, the banister of a stairwell. The Gemstone collection is inspired by my painter mother, who taught me a love of color and nature.
