A word about the Zodiac Collection
Welcome to a new year, new decade, and new you. For a time, I was afraid this collection would never come to fruition, but here it is . . . more than two months later than I originally anticipated. Injuries are quite disruptive for those of us who perform all the roles of a small business. Despite the delays, I managed to complete the collection. Better late than never.
Actually, I am very excited about this collection and had a lot of fun with it. I began by researching and learning about the twelve signs of the zodiac. Let me tell you, I learned a lot, about all of you <<wink>>. Once I had lists of traits and characteristics for the different signs, the difficult part of the process began. You see, my goal was to create a collection that enhanced the positive traits of the various signs. The only way I know to do this is with gemstones, so phase two of my research began. Affordability was one criterion I used when selecting stones, but my main concern was identifying appropriate stones for each sign’s best characteristics. When all was said and done, I was pretty happy with my selections.
As much as I enjoy the design process, I’ll admit to having some difficulties with this collection. Some of the stone collections I chose were, for me, a challenge. I found myself working with color collections that I typically wouldn’t combine. Despite several false starts, I am pleased with the results. Only near the end of completing the collection did I decide to offer every design style for every sign.
Each sign has a “featured” design, which is depicted in the main photo. Included in the photos for each sign are 6 other designs that are available by special order. I don’t know how well this will work, but let’s give it a try.
I’m happy to finally share this collection with you. I hope you love it as much as I do and that it was worth the wait. Peace.

I'll be a bridesmaid in a wedding in October and wanted to get some jewelry that would go with the dress, and that I could continue to wear outside of the special event. I had noticed a design Cindy had previously made (and sold, very quickly!) and fell in love with it. I reached out and asked to have a custom pair of earrings made to match a dress color and Cindy absolutely nailed it! The earrings were shipped promptly, the packaging they came in was super cute and neat, and they absolutely took my breath away!
I recently purchased the Capricorn bracelet in Cindy’s new collection for a friend. It arrived today and I was honestly captivated by it instantly! The attention to detail is impeccable. The craftsmanship of each piece she creates is incredible and unmatched! They are sturdy, feel amazing to touch and spark complete joy when wearing them or holding them. I have one of her bracelets that was gifted to me by my sister, and it has been since day one my go to bracelet and one of my favorites. Her eye for design is amazing and honestly you can’t always learn that type of style. Some people just have it within them and Cindy is one of those people! Aside from all of that she is such a kind and wonderful person and it’s clear she cares about what she’s putting out for people to wear. Each item is unique and specially crafted which makes for an undeniably great purchase. There is no doubt in my mind I can go to Cindy anytime I am looking for something special. Be it for myself or a gift and I am completely confident I will be getting something exquisite! Each design I’ve seen in person has taken my breath away!
Thanks to Cindy, I am slowly building a gorgeous collection of one-of-a-kind, beautifully crafted earrings. I was recently stopped by a stranger in a restaurant who admired my Cindy-made earrings. I thanked her proudly and told her how to find them. Cindy is a true creative. I'm a total fan!
Cindy is just the best. I wanted a new ankle bracelet and was looking at one that had a leather cord, but she understood that I don't really take off my anklets, even when taking a shower or going swimming. So she recommended a surfer cord instead and even had it in my favorite color. I absolutely love it, and I don't intend to take it off all summer
I own a couple of Cindy's pieces, and have bought many for my daughter and nieces. I check her website for new creations at least once a week because I am always afraid I will miss out on something I would love to have (though, I know she would happily re-create a piece if asked). Cindy's jewelry is very unique and finely-crafted. I highly recommend you check her out; you will not be disappointed!!!
I had the pleasure of winning one of Cindy 's creations...her work is so beautiful and AWESOME quality!! Cindy you are so talented and creative! I love your work!! Jo Ann
Cindy takes care to make sure that you are happy with your piece. As others have said, she is willing to customize designs, and she uses quality materials. I purchased the "Mediterranean Moon" wrap bracelet in Spring 2018. The colors complement each other gorgeously (deep blue-green and moonstone) and it is a very sophisticated and inspiring piece - especially for me, since I have taken great inspiration from the moon and the Mediterranean both! One small drawback of the piece I purchased is that I found the toggle clasp would come undone when I was rotating my wrists "a la flamenco" - something I liked to do a lot with that bracelet, since my life as a dancer is more allowing of beautiful jewelry than my civilian life. Just something to keep in mind as you browse, if you are a wrist-twirler of any variety. Overall, Cindy brings a lot of care, compassion and resourceful creative talent to her endeavors as a jewelry-maker and I would happily purchase from her again.
I don't often wear jewelry, but couldn't resist buying one of Cindy's bracelets (and I even wear it!). I also bought bracelets for my three nieces. Cindy's selection of jewelry is varied, with different creative styles and colors--and the prices are great.
The bracelet I received as a Christmas gift is gorgeous! I rarely wear jewelry, but when I do I want it to make a statement. This bracelet is truly unique and well-crafted; I've already received tons of compliments.
I have several beautiful bracelets from Cindy’s early collection. She takes careful work to make sure that each piece will delight the buyer.
These new pieces, that are shown on this site, are wonderful. Enjoy your purchase.
All of Cindy's designs are gorgeous, unique, and high quality! I'm incredibly grateful that I received one of her double wrap bracelets for my birthday this past week. It makes me feel beautiful!
I love the pieces Cindy creates. I recently purchased a blue necklace with beaded tassel and I get so many compliments. Her work is very original and I especially appreciate her attention to detail. The elements she uses in each piece are of the highest quality, and I should know because I create jewelry too!! I know what it takes! She truly cares about her customers' satisfaction, as well. I guarantee you will be delighted with your purchase!
Where do I start? I purchased matching bracelets for me and my mother, and let me tell you, my mother is not easy to please!!! Cindy created two bracelets that not only were beautiful, but my mother loved hers, as do I! We wear our matching bracelets every day, and they still look new! No part of the bracelet is faltering, AND I PURCHASED THEM IN FEBRUARY 2018! A year of wear and tear and these bracelets have held up impeccably. Cindy is truly gifted in what she does, and her jewelry really embodies how much love,care and effort goes into each piece!!
Cindy designed 2 sets of custom earrings for me. It was a pleasure working with her, she took my suggestions and came up with a great combo of wiring and beads. The second pair of earrings she tweaked from a design already on her website, making them shorter to fit my needs. I then purchased a white lava bead bracelet because I love her designs.
I find Cindy's creations completely irresistible in their quality and design! The sophisticated details and compositions of each piece - from the choice of colors, textures, and histories of the elements - all come together with an organic, natural beauty that is absolutely unique to each item. So far, I've purchased a necklace, more than half a dozen bracelets, and look forward to owning many more. Once you hold a piece in your hands, and feel it lock into your senses, you simply can't let it go.
I was in search of a special gift for my future daughter in law’s birthday and stumbled upon Cindy’s Bewitching Beads . There was a beautiful wrap bracelet posted that I decided to purchase and boy am I happy I did.! The bracelet is beautifully made. The colors are spectacular! I loved the feeling of giving a unique, quality made piece of art to a very special lady and she loved receiving it! Thank you Cindy! #bestgiftever
Thank you, Catherine! I'm happy you were able to give your future daughter-in-law something special that she loves.
I bought three of Cindy's pieces as gifts for my family. I just received them in the mail today and they’re more beautiful than I could have hoped for! I recommend Cindy’s work to anyone who’s looking for jewelry that is unique and made with love. I can’t wait to buy something for myself!
Thank you, Jenna! I look forward to making something that you'll adore! I hope your family members love their gifts.
I bought one of Cindy’s fabulous bracelets for my friend’s 50th birthday. This friend loves purple and I bought what I thought would be perfect for her...and it was! I gave it to her in September and I don’t think she’s taken it off since - her mother and she herself told me virtually the same thing! Cindy also made a beautiful bracelet using my favorite colors. I love it and wear it with all of my favorite clothes to accentuate them. If you haven’t bought anything, get off the fence and buy something UNIQUE and BEAUTIFUL.
Thanks for the lovely review, Pam. I'm thrilled that your friend is receiving so much joy from your gift.
