TWO GIRLS GEMS
Two Girls Gems was established with my friend in 2011, and originally as Two Girls Shop. With only a degree in Interior Design my jewelry making skills was limited but my design foundation was solid. After many classes of metal smithing my skills slowly improved. My intent although, was never to make new jewelry but to give new life to forgotten antique pieces. I am inspired by the craftsmanship of gentlemans' watch fob chains, lockets, Victorian chantelaines, muff guards and hat pins to name a few. I feel a need for these beautiful pieces to be loved again and not simply melted down as scrap. Each piece in my collection is one of a kind and styled uniquely for its attributes. These new heirlooms are styled for the next generation. Waiting for it's new story to be told - just like Edward Tulane in the childrens book The Miraculous Jouney of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.
