About Cindy Liebel Jewelry

CLJ is jewelry for the individual, the ever-curious collector who actively engages with the world and thrives on exploration. For every empowered individual, each piece is made to feel effortlessly comfortable, making style easy and timeless. You'll always find a diverse assortment of styles, crafted to outlast trends, gift giving, and for regular enjoyment, from leisure to your next noteworthy event.

I find joy in manipulating precious metals and forming intricately seamless designs showcasing clean, geometric lines, soft angles and refined textures. I love creating an assortment of jewelry one can easily adorn without a fuss and is complimentary to your own style. I want to inspire the wearer to be creative while playfully remixing styles in a way that speaks to them and makes them feel confidently beautiful

  

VALUES

My unwavering commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing pushes the limits of my creativity and invites me to explore new opportunities in design. All jewelry is mindfully crafted with sustainability in mind. I 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, I use recycled sterling silver, gold and other precious metals acquired from trusted, responsible suppliers, or I will recycle the metal myself. Whenever possible, I reuse raw materials and incorporate post-consumer materials in the packaging.

 

PROCESS

I draw inspiration from features of Scandinavian design aesthetics, contemporary architecture and Art Deco, including geometric patterns and abstract line art. My designs start with a hand-drawn sketch and are transformed into scaled paper models, allowing me to see the form and shape of the design in a more tangible way.

As an artist, I have been a passionate visual storyteller for as long as I can remember. My grandfather first inspired my love for photography, a craft I explored and honed during my formative years. The opportunity to learn and develop basic metalsmithing techniques in 2007, captivated my creativity and ultimately inspired me to rebrand and launch Cindy Liebel Jewelry in 2014. Since then, I've been refining my craft and continually seeking new ways to evoke emotion and delight my customers through intentional design. Here at CLJ, I support local and national nonprofit organizations that reflect her values and commitment within her community.
