OMG. I Can't Even Believe This.

Hello!

I know that title may share an uncanny resemblance to clickbate but I actually do have something pretty cool to tell you.

It's been 5 years since we started making jewelry!!

I can't be certain of the exact date but I know we got started somewhere in between my birthday (9/13) and our wedding anniversary (11/24) back in 2012. And as cliche as it sounds we couldn't have done it without a little help from our friends, family, and amazing clients that have supported us over these past five years.

My babe The Whittle Master and I had no prior experience in the jewelry biz before Gem Steady. It all just kinda started seemingly out of nowhere. I don't even know what kind of expectations we had going in, but I'm pretty pleased where time has lead us this far.

It's pretty insane looking back on where we started and how far we've come.

 Holy shit.

Holy shit.

This is the first ring I ever designed. 

 I had had this big guy made by an artist in Atlanta. It's clear and smoky quartz in sterling silver and copper.

 Well loved for a long time; she is now retired to the curio.

As you can see I was not going for subtlety there.

Lucky for me The Whittle Master took an interest in the art of making jewelry. Amongst the massive raw crystal hand boulders, one of the first rings he ever created was this..

 My original wedding band.

I love this ring. I especially love that it's kind of both a symbol of the beginning of both our business AND our personal lives together. I rediscovered this band a few weeks ago. I'm thinking we should recreate it in yellow gold. What do you think? 

The days of massive raw crystals may be behind us, and my babe's skills are constantly evolving, but we will always appreciate where we came from. 

We would like to express our most sincere gratitude to everyone who has shown their support to us and to Gem Steady.

So if you've ever 'liked' one of our posts, shared Gem Steady with a friend, or purchased a custom piece of jewelry from us then we thank you. You are the reason we have been able to continue doing what we love.

 I'll leave you with one of our most recent creations :)
