Chic Jewelry in Tulsa

My creative and lovely friend makes chic and casual jewelry. The designs range from simple to intricate and go with everything in your wardrobe it seems! I interviewed her about her hobby turned business. The items are versatile, well priced and accessible to purchase.FullSizeRender 5

What inspired you to start making jewelry ?

I needed a navy necklace to go with a dress for a wedding. I kept making them and people really liked them. They asked if I could make them jewelry… and it took off!IMG_0080

Where do you get the stones?

Most are from Chicago or Dallas. I’ve ordered some online.FullSizeRender

It depends. Some necklaces can take two weeks. 15 to 20 minutes per bracelet but some can take one hour (like a necklace.) FullSizeRender 3

FullSizeRender 3I don’t make items that I won’t wear. If I”m not sure I love the [pink] bead on this necklace, for example, I wear it to see what people think. If someone loves a jade, I can find a similar color and do custom orders. Some people like the big stones, some like smaller.

What is the significance of the St. Matthew medal on some of these pieces of jewelry?

That one has Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John on it and it’s Franciscan. I love crossess ;everything started out being crosses.  I went to my niece’s baptism a while ago and she had a jewelry party when I was out there. I took a few cross things and everything sold and people said, “we need more crosses!” I like crosses . It makes me feel good inside.IMG_2129
