About

Make what you love, love what you make.

I'm happiest in a craft store..
I could spend hours slowly walking through the isles absorbing ideas. It makes my imagination go wild! Inspiration hits me all day and night - I rarely walk around without a notebook in case I need to sketch a new design.

I've always been "unique" and creative.. I see visions of things to make and bask in delight as I bring my creations to life. I discovered my first hand stamped jewelry piece in a magazine. The moment I saw it, my world slowed down just a little as it clicked in my head - this is what I want to make! I picked up some simple tools from local craft stores and began pounding away at metal. I started to gift family and friends with my pendants and share them across social media. In 2010, with the urging of friends and family - I started to sell my wares publicly. Since then we've experienced a great deal of growth, expanding our reach in the retail business world each year. In 2012, my dreams came true and I was able to leave my job of 13 years, to pursue my true love of creating. I've never stopped learning, and growing as both a person, and a business.

I'm sharing my visions with you on Etsy, but don't think that's all I can do. Custom work is my specialty, if you have an idea, know I probably have the materials and tools to make it a reality. I love knowing I've made someone's idea come to life.

I consider selling my wares putting little unique pieces of me out there for others to enjoy. I always wanted my life to make some sound, and it seems.. that sound.. is of a hammer hitting metal.

A Special Note to those in Long Distance Relationships:
I understand the unique difficulties those in an LDR face. I've been in (or am currently in) every type of LDR that exists (whether it be S.O., Friends or Family) so I truly understand the unique challenges each one presents. I make what I make to help you guys feel connected. I know how important it is to feel close to your other half when you cannot be together. My pieces are meant to serve as a reminder - I hope they give you strength to face the difficult road ahead. When your feeling sad and alone, we want you to look out your piece, wrap your hand around it, and tell yourself it's all going to be alright. I wish you all the luck in the world towards your end goal - closing the gap --Nikki
