About me and my Jewelry

Why I Started Set to Shine

The idea for Set to Shine Jewelry came to be in 2019. I was in my last semester of college, graduating with Environmental Studies degree. For many of my environmental classes, I had a certain amount of volunteer hours I had to complete. As I volunteered for many local organizations, my love for helping my community grew. However, I found myself also wanting to help organizations that were not local, so I figured the best way to help was to donate.

I have been making jewelry since I was 10 years old, it has been my creative outlet ever since I can remember. I even sold my handmade jewelry at family events when I was younger, so in a way, I believe I was always meant to make jewelry.

 

Set to Shine has allowed me to combine my passion for jewelry with making a difference. Set to Shine Jewelry is my small way of facilitating the change I want to see in the world. Every month I choose an organization/charity to donate 20 % of my profits from selling my jewelry to. I love keeping my customers updated on our organization of the month by detailing how much their order has donated, as well as sharing information about our organization of the month through social media.

About my Jewelry

I take pride in creating handcrafted, unique pieces that are inspired by my journey, the places I’ve been and the things I love. I want to create jewelry that is perfect for all of life’s moments. Whether you want to feel beautiful and powerful with my whimsical and larger than life pieces or are looking for a delicate and simple piece that you can grab on your way out the door, I want to create it for you!

 

I make my gold jewelry with mostly 18k gold plated materials and occasionally, brass. I use 18k gold plated materials because this thin layer of gold is durable and tarnish resistant. Opting for a gold plating rather than a gold fill allows my products to have accessible prices, while maintaining high quality.

 

The same quality goes for my silver pieces made from a mix of sterling silver and rhodium. Both my silver and gold jewelry are hypoallergenic and nickel free!
