I am always fascinated by minimalistic looks and movements in jewelry. With one of our first accepted vendors, I was blown away with the beauty in these hand-crafted pieces.
Cindy Liebel, located in Fredericksburg VA, has been creating jewelry for over 8 years in her backyard studio. She takes recycled sterling silver and adorns the metal with elegant details like responsibly sourced gemstones.
Cindy says that her main inspirations comes from the raw materials she uses. With simple forms like geometric shapes and architectural structures, she hints at nature, and makes each piece with an eye for detail. This comes naturally to Cindy, since she has a background in fine arts and photography.
It was always known that Cindy was going to be involved in a creative field. Ever since she was a young girl, around the time she learned how to machine stitch her own dresses, she knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the arts. Her mother a seamstress and her brother, an avid fine artist, she grew up inspired by expressionism and craft.
Like a lot of creatives, she had to put her passion on the back burner for while. It was wasn’t until she began staying at home to care for her two children that she had the opportunity to blossom her business.
When asked what her main goal is, she replied that she wants to continue running as a small business. “I love the personal aspect of running a business and having interaction with my customers” She also hopes to continue her education through her trade, enhancing her skills and expanding her knowledge as a business owner and an artist.
Since putting her work online, Cindy’s work has spread all over the United States along with Canada and Europe! She says the biggest achievement thus far is receiving the feedback from all her customers. “...when they are so happy to receive their new jewelry, how it makes them feel when they wear it or the meaning behind a custom piece. Brings me so much joy!”
Cindy is the epitome of uncomplicated elegance, femininity, and edginess. Her jewellery being a perfect reflection of her personal style. She believes that a successful artist is one that stays grounded and stays true to their art.
Along with her art and craft, Cindy finds herself cooking, painting, crocheting, and just keeping up with life. She mentions that she would like to take up ceramics again as well. “I love collecting different shapes and styles of vessels."
We absolutely can’t wait to have Cindy join us on July 30th and 31st.
