Like all great relationships, fabulous jewelry has been a part of my life for a very long time. This love affair began when I was a young girl, and I fell in love with the glamorous, vintage pieces from my Great-grandmother's personal jewelry collection. I was very fortunate that some of her beautiful treasures were given to me by my Grandmother. I cherish each piece and am always looking for a chance to showcase them at a black tie or party.
My path has always been a creative one. Designing my own prom dresses and matching jewelry, working side-by-side with my Gramps to create stained glass jewelry pieces, going on to study fashion merchandising and fashion design with minors in visual merchandising, event planning and design.
I began working with vintage Swarovski gems and fun stones... in a frenzy of inspiration, fashioning things people actually loved! My taste for classic and eclectic styles appealed to that elusive part of a woman that loves to sparkle, even if she's too shy to admit it. The relationship blossomed and RockCandy was born.
RockCandy's dragonfly image is a tribute to the memory of my grandmother, who called dragonflies her friends so that I would not be afraid of them. To this day, I still love dragonflies. "Thanks Gram!"
