Hello, my name is Valerie Bluemel and I am the designer of this jewelry. I have loved making jewelry for more than 25 years because a bit of my heart goes in to every piece of jewelry I make. I believe if you value artisan products, you will delight in knowing that something was made with care and consideration for the people who will wear them.
I hope you indulge in experiencing something new with whatever pieces you select for yourself or as a gift. I do believe that adornment is meant to be fun, playful and explorative. Beauty abounds and I also like to break self prescribed limitations. It took decades for to really embrace myself, my unique look, my curves, my styles and my heritage. Feel free to break your own barriers and limitations on what you think you can wear.
Another wonderful thing is I often incorporate other regional artist’s work, whether it be clay, glass, porcelain, metal-works, or gems, in to my creations. Many are in the US, and some of these artists are in Europe. We all love to create just for you. You may also find parts of previous worn pieces incorporated in to new designs to give it "new life".
Lastly, I have certifications from The Revere Academy & Gemology Institute of America, as well as other courses.
"Valerie’s jewelry pieces are beautiful, well-made, and uniquely hand-crafted. I treasure all the pieces I have purchased from her. I feel like each one is an individual reflection of her compelling artistry and creative vision. Doing business with Valerie is a true pleasure!
"I just wanted to let you know I haven't taken off my bracelet even for a moment. It is SO special to me and just perfect in every way. Thank you for this gift to my heart.
With love and gratitude, Kirsten S"
