Your Cart is Empty

Creating jewelry brings me such an array of personal joys. Designing new pieces offers this creative outlet just as crafting details by hand brings satisfaction as I watch the design come to life.  Of course, selling them to enthusiastic clients (both old and new) always washes a tidal wave of pure bliss and utter pride…right over the top of me.

I began creating jewelry as a hobby while intending on pursuing a different type of design career (that story is for another blog – stay tuned!). As I began to streamline my aesthetic and gain that confidence in my path,  I realized that my love of jewelry design was where my heart belonged.

I remember my first experience seeing someone wear CMD jewelry in public. While at Rainbow Grocery in line to checkout, I looked up from my cart of deliciousness to see a woman in front of me wearing my hammered oval hoops. Unbeknownst to her I stood feet away, my heart swelled with pride.

My greatest joy is seeing the love my clients have for CMD. When a friend texts me saying “A woman on the bus is wearing CMDs!” or a client tells me “This stack ring is my staple, everyday piece of jewelry. I simply don’t feel like myself without it.” I know I have done my job well. To create a product that both I as a designer, and you as the consumer, love greatly is an absolute amazing feeling.

Thank you all for supporting and loving CMD! I delight in creating my jewelry, but it is a completely different, rewarding experience to see you all enjoying.  Do you have a special CMD piece you can’t live without? Leave your comments below and let me know what it is! I love to hear from you!
