About soliloquyjewelry

I was born, raised, and am currently living in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, MA. My love of books, stones, and jewelry itself inspire my designs; hence my shop name, Soliloquy Jewelry, and its motto, "Symbolic adornment for bohemian souls." All of my pieces are handmade of metal and stone, and hold their own significances to literary, metaphysical, and symbolic realms. Each piece has a story that I strive to include in my item descriptions in my shop. I feel deeply connected to my work, and would like its wearers to feel the same.

A Rock & A Hard Place

Copying. This is an issue I’ve seen arise again and again in the jewelry community. I’ve seen it handled well, but I’ve also seen it confronted in the most combative and immature of ways for reasons seemingly grounded in arrogance … Continue reading
