Many years before I became a jewelry designer, I was like many of you working as a professional woman in the corporate world. At the time, there was an extremely strict dress code: suit, heels, and very conservative jewelry. All of us dressed and looked the same- very cookie cutter, drab and boring
Many of the jewelry pieces I owned were poorly made using cheap metals that chipped, tarnished, or broke. Eventually, these pieces either wound up in the trash can or in the very back of my jewelry box never to be worn again. They never defined my personal style because every other woman was wearing the same jewelry.
A few years ago, I was looking for a hobby and found a jewelry kit at Michaels.
It was a game changer!
I realized I could design jewelry that was not only suitable for a professional woman but let me express my own personal style. I took several classes in metalsmithing. I love the science of metals and can't resist the sparkle and fire of colored gemstones.
I figured there were other women who wanted jewelry that expressed outwardly what they already know - that they are confident, strong and unique. This led me to start my line of ontemporary, minimalist jewelry influenced by my love of architecture, modern art, and science.
I created Candace Stribling Jewelry to design jewelry that answered the needs of these women seeking unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry that they would not see on everyone.
My mission is to create jewelry for women, like you, who want to be their own person and express their style through jewelry that is theirs and theirs alone.
