About

A Toad, A Princess, and a Lily Pond

Why is a jewelry shop is associated with a toad?

The story goes:
My husband has called me "Princess" ever since we were dating. He was always my "Toad in shining tin foil.” The deal was, once he married me, he would become my prince. Well, throughout our journey, my toad got his tongue cut in half, he lost his lily pond, and was only able to sit on a lily pad. After we got married, I fell back on my word about making him my prince because I would miss my Toad. So, now we rule the Lily Pond as Toad and Princess. That is of course, the short version of our fairy tale. Anyhow, when coming up with the name for my jewelry, I wanted it to reflect the romance that I believe jewelry can inspire, while also representing my story. So, Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry was born. It reflects my fairy tale with my meant to be and reflects all that I hold dear. I love making people smile, and jewelry is one thing that has always made me smile, so I hope that I can do the same for anyone who buys it or even likes it.

Making A Difference:
Having dealt with mental health illness lifelong both individually and with family members, we are excited to announce our support in combating the social stigmas that surround mental illness. By 2017, all of our products will have a specific foundation to which a minimum of $2 will be donated to per purchase in order to help raise awareness to mental illness. Each item will have a small section describing the color and associated awareness and foundation that we will be targeting with that product. Although some of our products will not go directly to a mental health foundation, the foundations that are supported have their own ties into mental health. For example, for pink (breast cancer awareness), many times, the individual will undergo depression or other mental health factors while learning to cope with this new physiological development. Our aim, regardless of the foundation, it to help you understand the emotional effects each of the mentioned ailments may cause.

Behind Toad's Lily Pond Jewelry:
As a lifelong jewelry lover, I have always had an eye for things that sparkle. Even as a young girl, I was notorious for getting into my Mom and Grandma’s jewelry and utilizing it in as many ways possible. As I have gotten older, I realize that I have spent countless dollars on jewelry that I fell in love at first sight with. To my dismay, many of those items that I spent a fair amount of money on, never lasted as long as I’d hoped. November of 2011, I embarked on a journey to design and create lasting jewelry, which led to the development of Toads Lily Pond Jewelry.

My poor Mom and Grandma endured the loss of countless jewelry pieces. I was on a constant quest as a youngin’ to take apart all things that sparkled and either create a completely new jewelry piece, or just collect the stones to watch them glisten in the sun. The stones were my ‘buried treasure’ in the fairy tale I staged in the back yard playing. In hindsight, those stones were merely glass, and the jewelry was the creativity of a very young little ambitious girl, and yet, they begin to pave the path to something that would turn out to be an amazing journey.

As I ended my teen years and entered my early 20s, I began to familiarize myself with more refined costume jewelry products. Liz Claiborne became my favorite jewelry line to buy from. Fashionable, flashy and classy! Perfect combo, or so I thought. I began realizing that I was constantly fixing these department store quality pieces of jewelry with the odds and ends I had at home. Towards the end of November 2011, I suddenly decided that I was fed up with spending all this money on jewelry that I was regularly fixing and was therefore going to start creating my own. By the end of December 2011, I had not only made all the presents for the women in my family, but also had my first experience with a request for a ‘custom made’ piece of jewelry for an acquaintance. My experience with making this custom necklace was so invigorating, I realized, this is what I wanted, no, HAD to do.

With the idea that there had to be more than one woman out there that desired beautiful, quality and reasonably priced jewelry, on January 19, 2012 Toads Lily Pond Jewelry was born. With quality versus quantity ingrained into me by someone I refer to as my ‘other’ Mom, the concept is something that is strongly incorporated into all items made through Toads Lily Pond Jewelry. The never ending quest to develop and create products that are made with quality and remain affordable has been a continued journey since then. Toads Lily Pond Jewelry is a present day reflection of that little girl’s fairy tale…

    I've been making jewelry ever since I can remember. As a little girl, I would take apart my Mom and Grandma's jewelry to create new pieces. In high school, I always had new jewelry I had made. As an adult, I LOVE creating jewelry for me and others.

Hi there! I’m Chandreyee of Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry and this small business has been my passion since I started it. Jewelry has been my passion long before that. When I make my designs, I do so hoping that the person who buys it will see it the same way that I do. I have truly learned to value something that is handmade because there was thought, anticipation, feeling and a part of self that was put into that item. Even if there is more than one, there will never be the amount that a department store sales because the maker is not a machine. That in itself makes the item valuable and that is what I hope my customers will find amazing about my store, my jewelry, and my story. Moreover, my biggest hope is that my customers will cherish the items they buy from me. Each item I make has a story behind it; from each individual piece to the fully made piece of jewelry. I hope that you will further that story and give it a ‘life’ of its own.
