Tell us about your business.ByJodi is handmade artisan jewelry using precious and semi-precious stones, sterling silver, eco friendly leather and other various natural elements. A true love of rare and natural gemstones drives the design and aesthetic of the line. Inspiration comes from nature, architecture, art and the human form. The desire is that every piece makes the wearer feel special, beautiful, important and loved.
What makes your business stand out?Every piece of jewelry is personally hand crafted. My designs are made of the highest quality materials available, from all corners of the world. You will find Sonora Nacozari turquoise, Brazilian pyrite, Russian seraphinite, Peruvian opal, and many, many other finds that I hope will bring you as much pleasure as they bring me. I am meticulous in my selection of which stones to use on each bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings. Not a single detail is overlooked in my production. Even the way I finish my beaded bracelets takes into consideration daily use, which stones surround the silver focal piece, the overall balance, and the way that it will sit on the wrist. I want my clients to feel the love and care that I put into my work and treat each piece as if it is the only one.
