I am obsessed with jewellery!
I knew at an early age jewellery would figure prominently in my life. I was fascinated with my grandmother's eclectic collection of earrings. I took a special liking to a pair that were fruit plates complete with flies! Obviously, my taste in jewellery hadn't fully developed yet. For many years I worked in a fine jewellery store, where I spent as much time as possible trying on every piece of jewellery in stock. And more importantly, learning different jewellery techniques from the resident goldsmith.
I began making my own jewellery several years ago when I fell in love with a bracelet that was absolutely gorgeous but way over my budget. I decided I would make one. I sourced the gemstone beads and sterling silver wire, purchased a set of tools and set up my own bench.
This was my destiny!
Now I spend everyday living my dream. All Gracie Jewellery is handcrafted by me in my home studio. I am the happiest with a strand of gemstones and a pair of pliers in my hands.
I would love to make a special piece of Gracie Jewellery just for you!
