Accessories – Boston, MA

I am a self taught artist and jewelry designer, ex-accountant and cosmetologist. I was born in Boston, MA and raised in Quincy. I've been drawing since I was 5, and started painting in 2006. I Started selling jewelry in 2015, however it was not my own, and was not unique. I love unique, edgy, elegant one of a kind pieces that no one else will have. I started creating jewelry in 2016, with the seashells, sea glass and stones I found on the beach. I live near the ocean and have collected seashells and stones my whole life. I love incorporating my beach finds into my designs and creating with mother nature. However, I also love creating industrial, steampunk and using hardware like washers and nuts in my designs. My interest in creating with hardware began when I did construction on my home. I guess my fascination with hardware started as a young girl, helping my father in his work around the house, I handed him his tools. I remember him asking for the phillips head screw driver and him telling me, "the one that looks like a star", that is when I looked at hardware differently. During the construction of my home, I remember holding nuts and washers to my wrist and thinking, that would be a cool bracelet. I opened and launched my jewelry designs in Jan. 2016 under Designs by CGP on Etsy, aka Christine Pierce Designs on FB. My style has evolved in the past year, I ventured into creating with spikes, Swarovski crystal beads, nuts, and washes....Edgy, Industrial meets Elegance. I love that look but also have a love for seashells. After several marketing and branding classes, I learned that a brand needs to be cohesive. And mine was a little all over the place. I had a tough decision....to make Designs by CGP cohesive, solely focused on the fusion of Edgy, Industrial, Elegance and remove every listing that didn't meet that criteria. Now, Designs by CGP is focused with Edgy, Industrial, Elegance. ...more
