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.
I made Clara her very first piece of jewelry! Lately, she has been grabbing for one of my bracelets so I asked her if she wanted her own, which she replied yes. Super excited that she was even interested, I let her pick out what color she wanted from the embroidery floss I had on hand and made her this bracelet for which, once she was presented with the bracelet, she hollered "No," and threw it across the floor. Spirits dashed, but not entirely squashed, I finally convinced her to just "try it on." Now she won't let me take it off! The impossible tininess of it makes me realize that although she is growing up fast, she's still so very little.
