A few days ago, we launched our first ever Uncommon Jewelry Design Challenge and we’re already seeing some fantastic submissions! Is jewelry-making your passion? Did an “aha moment” lead you to a unique new piece? Stand behind your work and send us your best designs for a chance to win $500 and the opportunity to sign a vendor contract with UncommonGoods!
Jewelry designer Charlotte Leavitt has an eye for design and a talent for jewelry making. She also has a love for sailing and a collection of charts. The former may fit together, and the latter make a practical pair. Charlotte actually found a way to combine her passions wholeheartedly.
It started when she was inspired by a creative friend. “I spotted a cute pair of earrings on a friend,” she says. “I asked her about them and she told me she made them. I thought, ‘I can do that!’ and promptly drove to the bead store and bought some supplies. One pair in, I was hooked.”
