About the Designer
As long as I can remember, I have been intrigued by design. From the angles and details of old architectural buildings, fashion lines each season and the beauty that surrounds us in nature.
Designing and making jewelry is incredibly rewarding. I feel so lucky to get to create these beautiful pieces everyday. The business side is a constant learning experience, and like many entrepreneurs, I feel like I wear a hundred hats.
We all have it in us... The need to create, curiosity, passion and the desire to leave a legacy.
Some of us begin when we are children, creating works of art in school; some of us master our craft in college, and then there are some of us who evolve as adults and finally fulfill our need to create something that brings together both our individuality and creations to fruition. The success of creating our visions and the love of seeing someone else enjoy that creation is worth all the hours.
"I am a designer that has evolved with time and it is my time to display my art." ~Janelle Cassiano
My past is a world-wind of many paths including years as a cutting horse trainer, manager of a high end fashion store, sales & marketing and licensed skin care specialist.
I love to share my designs with you in hopes that you'll be inspired to share your own story, your own style with confidence and a touch of allure.
Most of my designs are handcrafted with .925 Sterling Silver. You will also see pieces in Gold. These Gold pieces are made from Gold fill or 14k, 18k or 24k vermeil over Sterling. The Rose Gold is 18k vermeil. I use a lot of gorgeous semi-precious stones as well. Labradorite, Amethyst, Chalcedony, Black Onyx and Topaz are just a few of my favorite stones to use. The cubic zirconia stones I use are also of the highest quality, so they will never look “cloudy.” Quality is very important to me, and I keep that at the forefront of all of my designs.
As a single mom to two teenage boys, I love that they get to see me building a business and doing something I love. I believe that part of the journey is embracing the struggles you inevitably will face, reaffirming your commitment to succeeding, and digging in with gusto.
I think you will find a few jewelry designs to fall in love with and add to your own collection. And I also invite you to join the VIP Mailing List to stay up to date on special events, new releases and VIP only sales.
