I was born in Virginia, and have lived all over the USA with my military parents. I’ve always been creative, making my own clothing, learning pottery, and crochet. I studied photography and fine arts in college, and later on pursued further education in computer science.
In 2007, I started making jewelry, first for myself, and then for my friends. This lead to taking classes in wire wrapping techniques and basic metalsmithing. My hobby and love for manipulating metals soon turned into a new career.
Cindy Liebel Jewelry was started in 2015. My goal was to create modern and simple designs for everyday wear. I still take art and techniques classes to further my skills, and to continue growing as an artist. Running my own business has been an amazing journey. It’s been an honor to make these pieces that become a part of someone’s daily life. My jewelry can be found in stores and boutiques across the US, Canada, and Asia, as well as online (cindyliebel.com).
When I’m not thinking about jewelry or making it, I love to spend my time with my family and friends, taking road trips, wine tasting, and adding to my ever growing camera collection.
My work reflects a high attention to detail and the use of contrasting textures, colors and bold shapes. I create designs that combine the relationship between bohemian, art deco and modern simplicity, with a focus on sustainability and traditional and modern processes. My inspiration thrives on repetition, geometric form, and textures while creating an unconventional and eco-chic style. My background in fine arts and photography influences my creativity and visual storytelling. I am dedicated to creating jewelry that reflects individuality and evokes an emotion.
