About Our Shop
I have always had a passion to discover and design based on the world around me. To make the most of the hands and talents God has wired into me. C&J began simply: with a thrifted $5 pair of high waisted jeans, apartment 102 in Tallahassee, FL, and the passion to craft something beautiful. I altered the jeans into cut-off denim shorts and after several complements on my transformed apparel, friends began to ask for a pair of their own, and I began to create.
Handmade jewelry soon followed and thus, Cotton and Jewels was born.
These days, I have swapped most of the altered cotton clothing for leather work... and I've become consumed! I love watching the way each piece ages with time into a one-of-a-kind work of art with a story waiting to be unveiled.
I strive to provide handmade, unique, quality goods at an affordable price with an artistic design. My mother always said that when you do what you love, it is woven in the very essence of what you create. Each C&J design is crafted with this philosophy in mind.
Simple, classic, unparalleled style. That means clean lines, functional leather goods, and beautiful jewelry to adorn for a day at the office or a night out on the town!
I am currently located in Nashville, TN.
