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 a strict dress code: suit, heels, and plain 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 didn't define my personal style because I dressed and looked like every other person.
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. and fell in love with metal and colored gemstones.
I figured there were other women who wanted jewelry that expressed outwardly what they already knew - that they are confident, strong and unique. This led me to start my line of contemporary, minimalist jewelry influenced by my love of architecture, modern art, and science.
I created Candace Stribling Jewelry to design jewelry that meets your need to wear unique, one-of-a-kind or limited edition jewelry that you won't 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.
