Welcome to our shop! My name is Shelby. I am a wife and mom to three teenagers. I have been making jewelry for almost 20 years. Last summer, we opened a little shop on Etsy. We have been growing so we decided to start our own website, and see where this journey takes us. I create with the design input & social media assistance of my daughter, Kyra. We create pieces that are usually unique - one or few of a kind. A little boho. A little glam. Always interesting. I enjoy using a variety of techniques with genuine gemstones, sterling silver, crystals, and anything else that strikes our fancy. I work from my home studio in the Chicago suburbs with our 4 rescue canine coworkers supervising the activities.

If you like pieces that are interesting & not mass produced, this is the place. Many of our pieces can be customized to your needs. Just send us a message. Hope you find something that speaks to you. Thanks for stopping by!
