Pretty jewelry on a whim

North Carolina native Gwyn Cooley Pearce started designing jewelry in 2005 as a means of avoiding housework. Laziness turned into a three-year stint at a leading bead shop in the area, and the expansion of a hobby into a vocation. Influenced by everything from the ancient Etruscans to Kate Middleton, Gwyn joins color, fun, and wearability into her designs.
