Hello lovely souls!
My name is Christa. I am, and have been, obsessed with making jewelry for as long as I can remember. I live for the feeling I get when I'm able to make something out of nothing. And better than that, is the feeling I experience when I'm able to share these treasures with YOU. Beautiful shiny objects have always been my distraction...well, that and chocolate.
How did Reminded Designs get it's name? Its all about the sentiment! I came up with the name Reminded Designs as a way to remind people of a special person, moment, place or event. Reminded Designs pieces are special tokens of remembrance. Often given as a gift, or a piece to remind the wearer of a special time or commemorate an important event or person. Why forget when you could be Reminded?
What is it and how's it made? I handmake all of the jewelry in my home studio in beautiful Squamish, B.C. I use quality sterling silver, Rhodium plated brass, 18k gold plated brass, gold-filled, precious and semi-precious gemstones and freshwater pearls amongst other fun materials I scavenge on my travels. I get bored easily so my collections are often diverse and imaginative. Techniques used to create each piece includes soldering, beading, chainmaille, and basic assembly.
It is my life's joy to create beautiful and sentimental jewelry for you!
I make each piece by hand, employing the techniques of beading, wire work, basic assembly, metal stamping, chain mail, and simple soldering. Each piece is one of a few, feminine and inspired by nature.Minimalism with bold simplicity and on-trend charms creates the signature look of my work. I use 92.5 sterling silver, rhodium, 24k gold plating and/or natural semi-precious gemstones and I always do my best to source locally.
