Featured Shop of the Week: Arielle's Custom Jewelry

Arielle's Custom Jewelry is our latest Featured Shop of the Week!

Arielle has many talents, including creating one-of-a-kind jewelry to art photography, and she has a blog where you can follow Arielle's Custom Jewelry updates.

Arielle says, "Always I have had an interest in gemstones both for their beauty and their properties.  I've gone from collecting shale from a Pennsylvania driveway to perusing the largest gem and bead shows I can find! 

Eventually, I became attracted to gemstones in bead form.  I started making necklaces for friends and family, for birthdays and holidays, until I had so many I had to devote a whole wall to house them!

Starting a shop on Etsy was my natural first and best step.  Almost three years and over three-hundred sales later, I still devote just as much of my time to perfecting my shop, scavenging for gemstones and beads, researching fashion and the latest trends, and, of course, creating! 

Designing and making jewelry is not only my work, but a passion and joy!  Beading is meditative, and I try to incorporate that peaceful, happy energy into each and every piece. "


When asked about the challenges she faces with having a business, she says, "No one gives you a "How to Start and Run Your Business" To-Do List!  There's advertising, photography, shipping, packaging, bookkeeping, supply shopping, etc., and somewhere in there you still have to find time to create!  The hardest part is figuring out what I need to do at all times and organizing the time to do it in."

 Arielle's favorite things include the band The Flaming Lips, Thai extra-spicy food, the book Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, and photography. Her favorite way to relax is beading, and her favorite season is fall, but she says "we don't get that here in Florida!"
Arielle says the best part of her items are "Each and every single necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings at Arielle's Custom Jewelry is one of a kind!  I never repeat a work!  So when you wear my gems, you can know for sure that you are the ONLY one in the world wearing it!"
