About Cindy Liebel Jewelry
Cindy Liebel is jewelry for the individual, the ever-curious woman, man or non-binary who actively engages with the world and thrives on exploration. We strive to empower our customers by making style easy and timeless, offering them a special treat that aligns with their worldview.
We believe jewelry should speak to the person wearing it, so we produce a variety of sizes and metal finishes to empower our collectors, representing a wide range of body types and skin colors. Our pieces are crafted to outlast trends and regular enjoyment.
Designed specifically for comfortable, everyday accessorizing, our designs are lightweight and wearable. We make jewelry to complement an authentic and thoughtful life.
Our unwavering commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing pushes the limits of our creativity and invites us to explore new opportunities in design. All jewelry is mindfully crafted with sustainability in mind.
We intentionally source all materials from supply chains that focus on environmental stability and that educate consumers about sustainable mining and ethical trade. To that end, we only use recycled sterling silver and other precious metals acquired from trusted, responsible suppliers, or we recycle the metal ourselves. Whenever possible, we reuse raw materials.
Our packaging incorporates post-consumer materials, and we support non-profit organizations like Green America, which promote environmentally sustainable living.
Cindy has been a passionate visual storyteller for as long as she can remember. During her childhood, Cindy's grandfather first inspired her love for photography, a craft she explored and honed during her formative years.
In 2007, Cindy had the opportunity to learn and develop basic metalsmithing techniques, which captivated her creativity and ultimately inspired her to launch Cindy Liebel Jewelry in 2014. Since then, she's been refining her craft and continually seeking new ways to evoke emotion and delight her customers through intentional design.
Inspired by geometric forms and patterns, architecture, raw materials and both mid-century modern and Art Deco aesthetics, Cindy handcrafts her pieces using a fusion of traditional and modern processes.
Every one of Cindy's designs starts with a hand-drawn sketch. Next, she uses a digital die-cutting machine to cut her design into paper models of various sizes, which allow her to see the form and shape of the design in a more tangible way. After that, Cindy creates a mockup of her finished piece using wire or sheet metal made from copper or brass.
After she finalizes the design, she begins the production process, handcrafting each piece in her Virginia studio, a 10x12' lady lair that Cindy's husband designed and built for her. Once a new piece is complete she chooses a name for it, something that sparks joy and will be memorable.
Organizations we support and continually donate a portion of our sales to on an annual basis. Empower House (VA), We Wield the Hammer, The Love Land Foundation, Color of Change and Green America. This list is ever evolving.
