Welcome to CJ’s Jewelry Creations!
People yearn to love and be loved, so I make quality, unique, beautifully crafted jewelry that connects people and reminds that love is there for us all.
I find inspiration for the jewelry I make all around me: in nature, in the colors of the cabochon I want to set, in the beads on my wall next to my desk and in the shapes I see when I go for a walk. My favorite inspiration is the question, “Can you make …?” often followed by something I have never done before! I love this challenge. It is so rewarding to help breathe life into someone’s vision.
My style is eclectic: Southwestern, Minimal, Large and Chunky, Filigree, Contemporary, and sometimes a little Whimsical. Having grown up in the 60’s, there is some Bohemian in there, too.
I prefer to use quality materials in my jewelry: semi-precious and precious stones and beads, dichroic glass, enamel, glass, crystal, sterling silver, copper, and 14 karat gold. Each piece is hand-fabricated or hand-assembled by me here in the United States. I use various jewelry techniques such as centrifugal casting, cuttlebone casting, as well as traditional forging and fabricating techniques.
Each piece is unique and many are one of a kind. There are several looks and lines to explore. So come in and browse, make yourselves at home. Find a gift for someone you love. Connect With Jewelry. Connect With Love.
