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.
CJ's Product Spotlight
Every now and then one of my creations leaps out at me. It could be the picture really showcases the jewelry or it might be the story behind the jewelry, but I feel the need to share and give back to my community. So I add the product to the Showcase page and include a little something for the person who is blessed to make it their own!
