For years, people have made their own wedding rings and necklaces.
And they’ve been quite popular, especially on Instagram.
But now, a new kind of jewelry designer is out to take the trend to the next level.
Katie Wojcicki has launched a new line of jewelry that she describes as a “luxury purse that is designed for every occasion.”
She calls her line “a little bit of a mix of modern and traditional.”
Wojcik’s first collection of jewelry, which is available exclusively through her Etsy store, features a variety of pieces ranging from silver rings to gold jewelry to necklays and more.
Wojcik says her goal with her line is to “make something that you would find in the jewelry store,” not something you could just throw on and forget.
“I want people to wear it all the time,” she says.
“It’s not something that they can just buy and throw away.”
The first thing you’ll notice is the rings are handcrafted and handstitched, like jewelry you’d find at a craft store.
The rings themselves are hand-made, too, with each piece measuring about an inch and a half by one inch and made of platinum or gold.
And because each ring is handmade, they’re incredibly durable, with Wojciak saying they are so beautiful that they “wear like jewelry.”
“I wanted to make something that was meant to last,” she adds.
“That meant that I had to go out of my way to do a lot of handwork to make them so durable.”
The other aspect of the line is the jewelry itself, which consists of a variety, from intricate necklacings to plain jewelry.
The necklacer is for a traditional wedding ring, and the necklace is meant to be worn around the neck or worn with the bride and groom.
The whole set can be bought individually or as a set of three, and there are also a number of different color options.
For Wojk, jewelry has always been an essential part of her life.
Growing up, she loved to play the piano and play the violin, and when she was a little older, she started to dress up in sparkly dresses, sparkly shoes and sparkly jewelry.
And as her career has progressed, Wojtcicky says she has realized that she’s no longer just looking for the perfect piece of jewelry for a special occasion.
“As a young woman, I always wanted to do the same things that I’ve always done,” she explains.
“It’s been fun and rewarding, but it’s been a lot more than that.
It’s been fulfilling.
And it’s made me appreciate myself more.”
For now, Wosicki says she’s working on a series of new designs, but she says she’ll also be opening up shop to her customers in the near future.
