I first learned to make jewelry so that I could create bridesmaids gifts for my girlfriends. The pieces I had wanted to buy for them we well out of my budget. After my wedding, I used leftover beads to make myself some funky jewelry, and that quickly snowballed into a business. In 2008, I started Spiffing Jewelry, and for 2 years I made colorful, lush, beaded jewelry out of my bedroom. In 2010, I invested in some metal stamping tools, and began to incorporate my love of words into my designs. That year I was able to quit my day job and pursue my dream of owning my own business.
Not long after that, my husband and best friend each quit their jobs to come work with me, and the business has only grown from there. As self-proclaimed nerds, we're very passionate about the things we love, whether it's Harry Potter, Star Wars, or making really high quality jewelry for all budgets.
Our design aesthetic is centered around minimalism, which comes from a desire to represent our passions, from Fandoms to Family, in a subtle way that's appropriate for any outfit or occasion.
Our team of 4 works out of our studio and showroom in San Diego, where we host shopping parties and a bi-weekly craft night for local makers. (We just can't get enough of making things!)
By shopping with us, you are supporting the dreams (and families) of four women who work every day to make things that will make people smile. And for that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
