Hello! I’m Rebecca, and Heartwish Jewelry is about small batch, handcrafted jewelry with a personal touch. With a home base like Portland, Oregon, inspiration drawn from the beauties of nature is an everyday occurrence! Take a quick look around the site, and you’ll soon see that a love of nature, history, and vintage style influences my designs.
Each piece of jewelry I offer here is handmade and unique, made by me in my little studio. I choose my materials with great care and enthusiasm, as it is part of the exciting process of creating! Materials used are semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, and czech glass beads. Antique bronze metal accents are used, as well as sterling silver or quality silver plate. Sometimes I acquire fine vintage elements such as old brass chain or vintage Swarovski crystals, too, and I love incorporating these into designs! Favorite stringing materials are soft leather cord, waxed linen, or silk.
The bead embroidered jewelry you’ll see here are a particular joy to me to create. These statement pieces–both necklace and cuff bracelets– take time and love to make! I like to feel that I am stitching and weaving tomorrow’s heirloom. I hope to include more of these as time goes on.
To navigate the site, simply click “shop” or “sale” at the top menu bar to find the jewelry options that are listed, or keep scrolling down this page and you will see the inventory appear. Keep checking back, as new designs are always being added!
