I love the organic, imperfect nature of handmade jewelry. Each of my pieces is one of a kind. I love working with sterling silver, semiprecious stones, and vintage findings. In my day job I work at Anthropologie, Inc. but I spend most of my free time making jewelry and trying to develop my business, Villette Jewelry. I attended Moore College of Art and Design for metalsmithing and graduated from Temple University with a degree in English- Creative Writing. If you are interested in any Villette Jewelry products shown or a custom piece, please email VilletteJewelry@gmail.com.
Working for a retail company, I am constantly around product I am tempted to buy. I try to stay strong and convince myself not to buy these things which sometimes I seriously regret (could this be non-buyer's remorse???). I have a constant list of the "ones that got away"... great product I convinced myself I didn't need for which I lament over not having for years! This has been at the top of my list, the Casch sweater by Gro Abrahamsson from Anthropologie a few years ago. I convinced myself it was far too expensive, which was/ is a very solid reason, but over the years, I have realized the cost per wear would have justified the expense. Sigh... even now when I find it on ebay, pre-worn, it usually sells for the same retail price as it did 4 years ago... it's just that good!
