custom jewelry

I am a lecturer in the English department at the Univ. of Tennessee who loves to make pretty things. The jewelry I create is often inspired by the people in my life. I enjoy making custom pieces for customers based on their personality, lifestyle, and aspirational aesthetic. I want to create jewelry that makes people feel strong.

Hand Beaded Healing Stones

I have always been creative, over my lifetime it has showed up as dress-making, amateur theatre set dressing, props & furniture, Sumi-é (Japanese Ink Painting), making greetings cards and finally I was led to BEADS. I always said I didn't make jewelry and then I came across vintage buttons. It’s definitely ‘a journey’ but that's how this stuff works for a lot of people who have to experience multiple media to find that one thing that feeds the soul. I love Mother Nature’s gems, they feel good in my hands and I love the way designs come together differently for each stone. I love beads and how they interact when stitched collectively.  

The beautiful concert created makes my heart sing.

Mixed metal and natural stone jewelry

I'm a self-taught metalsmith living in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains next to the Little River in East Tennessee, a place that provides endless design inspiration for my organic forms. I love the sound of my hammer on the anvil, as well as the possibilities that mixed metals, natural stones, and rich patinas offer to communicate, uplift and inspire. It is my desire to make pieces that are made to last through generations while imbuing more beauty, energy, inspiration, and meaning into everyday life. Every piece is handcrafted with love.

Hand torched glass & metal jewelry & jewelry components

I use a torch to melt colored glass rods to make beads. Sterling silver, brass & copper are the metals I use to make my jewelry components. From ear wires to links, every part of my product is handmade by me. My pieces are one of a kind, literally! Teaching beginner & intermediate lampworking & metals classes are a large & fun part of my business.

Hand Painted Leather Goods and Geometric Jewelry

Minimalist design doesn’t have to be bland or forgettable! I aim to make jewelry and leather goods that are sleek yet full of personality. My work incorporates a variety of inspirations, from the purposeful design of a pocketknife, to nostalgia for 90s Claire’s earring sets, or the clean geometry of mid century furniture. Including colorful earrings sets, hand-patterned leather clutches, sleek keychain wristlets, and more, Cold Gold strives to provide the simple, memorable staples in your wardrobe.
