Gretchen Hind Designs
Gretchen creates modern, stylish, and affordable wire wrapped jewelry. She uses a variety of metal wire, gemstones, beads, and rocks in her unique creations. She has a number of signature designs and is constantly brainstorming new ones. Gretchen loves repurposing vintage beads as often as possible and is eco-friendly conscious in all production processes.
Her inspiration comes from the challenge of looking at a spool of wire, and some beads, and contemplating what to make next. Gretchen starting making jewelry when she and her little boy started collecting rocks on the beach. She experimented with wire wrapping the rocks into pendants and it took off from there. Wire wrapped rings have been her biggest sellers, but earrings are now a close second. She has sold jewelry to customers all over the world.
