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 altered cotton clothing for macrame! I love the unique textures and design the various fibers and knots can create. Watching a piece go from raw cotton rope to a beautiful wedding ceremony backdrop is one of my favorite things about the process of creating and watching a piece truly come to life!
I strive to provide handmade, unique, quality items 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 beautifully unique macrame to adorn on any wall in your home or business and classic, everyday jewelry that can go from day to night!.
I am currently located in Nashville, TN.
If you see a red scooter whiz by, you'll know it's me.
