Our Mission

At Simply Chic Jewelry, we know that life can be a bit overwhelming at times and as women, we can forget to take care and treat ourselves. So, to help remind us that we need care too, we created a line of sustainable and versatile jewelry that is meant to bring a little luxury into your everyday. To remind you that we are deserving of luxury at all times.

About The Designer

As a busy woman (wife, mom, career-woman, entrepreneur) myself, I can totally relate to the need of having little luxuries. I'm Rachael, owner and designer of Simply Chic Jewelry.

Before starting SCJ, I always wanted that “go-to" piece of simple, timeless jewelry so I don't have to worry about what to wear. The one with the high price tag that seamlessly matches every outfit; I could wear it to work, and then out to date night.

But I didn't want to waste anymore time searching for it, so I created my own. The inspiration from my designs comes from a love of simple, sleek and clean lines, with just a tiny splash of color. I'm a no-frills gal, so I wanted my jewelry to be the same. I like luxury without the incredibly high price tag.

My passion for creativity started when I was really young, I grew up around two important people in my life (my grandparents) who were always using their hands to make something. I was always around it. My grandma loved painting, cooking, baking and crafting. My grandpa worked in his workshop building wood birdhouses, puzzles, building golf clubs, etc. He bought me a "how to" sketch book as a child. It was of the simplest little humans and creatures but I loved sitting at the dining room table and drawing with him. I didn't find out later until he passed that he owned his own carpentry company called Garling Builders. I thought he just worked for someone. Nope, he worked for himself! I see can some of myself in his story and I know he would be so proud of me. 

It wasn't until 2014 that I started Simply Chic Jewelry and I took it even futher in 2015 by studying YouTube videos on metal-smithing techniques. After learning the basic techniques, I finally felt like I could bring my vision of everyday luxury to life. During this time my career grew as well and I felt like I could make that "go-to" piece that I was searching for.

I continue to further my knowledge to test and expand my techniques so I can continue to provide elegant and versatile pieces without sacrificing the look of simplicity and quality. I have since studied with the GIA in their Applied Jewelry Professionals Program and with Ashworth College in their Jewelry Repair and Design Program.
