My name is Shelby and I have always loved creating jewelry, from playing with bead sets as a kid to working with gemstones and precious metals in modern day. My jewelry is inspired by my other passions: mythology, nature, fantasy, and literature. Every piece is forged by hand in my studio, which is a room in my apartment and my happy place.
I began working under the name Blaqk Lace Jewelry back in 2010, mostly as a way to fund my creative journey. I finally began my silversmithing journey began in early 2018 after a long time of being to nervous to attempt it. I am self-taught, having learned through books, online videos and forums, and a lot of trial and error. I never imagined that this journey would take me so far! My pieces can currently be found online, in local retail spaces, and in-person at local artisan markets.
