Hi! My name is Gretchen Smith and I am a jewelry designer from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I have been in business for four years specializing in handcrafted sterling silver and gemstone jewelry. I love simple elegance over elaborate artistry so my jewelry is created to be simple enough to be worn to work, but elegant and eye-catching enough to be worn for a nice evening out.
I can easily get caught up in what I do, so I enjoy writing about every aspect of my business as well as the jewelry industry as a whole. I enjoy talking about what I call my “showcase pieces,” the inspiration behind them, and the materials they are made of in order to help you get a better idea of what my creations are all about. I also enjoy discussing current trends in the jewelry industry and other topics that affect my business. The jewelry industry is a very dynamic industry which is constantly changing and I feel others should be aware of how jewelry functions not only as something we wear, but also as a full industry.
Currently, most of my jewelry is sold through local craft shows and home shows, so you will find reviews of those shows in here as well. Many of the pieces featured on here can also be found in Gretchen Smith Jewelry’s Etsy Shop.
While you are here, please feel free to browse through the pages, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for joining me!
