Renay’s Jewelry

Renay’s Jewelry are handcrafted pieces that are unique and distinctive.  Ever since childhood, I have always loved jewelry and was intrigued with gemstones and pearls.  My lifelong dream was to design beautiful creations that would allow me to express my  exceptional flair for color and passion for excellence.  I started my career in the fashion business in New York City and eventually ended up in Chicago working for New York Magazine.

I started making jewelry as a hobby and found myself taking classes at an art studio.  A friend of mine invited me to join a group of women to sell my jewelry at a holiday fair.  Before I knew it, I was in business!

I specialize in using semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, swarovski crystals & glass beads.  I love to find unusual pendant clasps, whether they are sterling silver, gold, copper, bronze or vintage buttons! 

My designs also include pieces made with a beadweaving technique.  These intricate pieces are actually hand sown.  A labor of love!  Many of these can be commissioned in various colorations.
