Making Beautiful Things with God’s Gift of Gems
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!"
This is one of my very favorite sayings! I feel it just truly underlies my whole existence and the reason behind RockCandy. Designing jewelry and working with semi-precious stones is the most rewarding career. I enjoy handcrafting beautiful things with God’s gift of gems. I feel blessed to be able to contribute to women in a way that accentuates our own distinct beauty.
I have salt-water tanks and the creatures inside provide me with immense creativity and an endless sense of humor. To think of the time it must have taken to create, one by one every creature and their many moving parts. It reminds me of the care that each custom piece of jewelry gets. I create one of a kind pieces that are meant to awe and inspire.
