A Note from Candace

I've always enjoyed working with my hands. Growing up, I'd help my father around the house with small repair projects. The son of a World War I widow who used her death benefits to purchase a house for her family, and another to rent out which secured her financial freedom.  She was a business owner at a time when women were not expected to work outside of the home. My father always encouraged me to be a self-sufficient woman; he saw the same spark in me that he saw in my grandma. 

I first discovered jewelry while in the process of searching for a new hobby, but I soon fell in love with the process of creating unique pieces that I wouldn't be able to find in any store. In 2016, I began studying the craft of metalsmithing and knew I had finally found my passion. I was able to happily merge my love for the science of metals with my attraction to the sparkle and fire of colored gemstones. 

I also had the hunch that other women must be seeking jewelry that would help them outwardly express what they already know about themselves: their confidence, strength, and individuality. For years, I suffered with feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and the sense that I was not fulfilling my purpose. Today, I'm actively working to nurture my self worth, and jewelry serves as my talisman, reminding me of all the ways I care for myself. 

Going through this experience has made me realize that other women may seem extremely successful but be struggling internally with imposter syndrome. I strive to make jewelry that allows each woman to express her authentic self in a way that's completely unique to her. I understand how it feels to be viewed as part of the crowd, and not as an individual, so I strive to create artful jewelry that will move you emotionally, connect you to your creative soul, and help you step into your personal style. I want all women to feel beautiful, smart, and strong.
Best,
Candace
