My name is Rhea Kulcsar, and I am a small town girl from Ohio. I’ve been working in the fashion business in NYC since 2008. Started my brand 6 years ago right before turning 30. How time flies! Now I now have 2 retail shops in Manhattan, and sell online and on instagram. *Update - Stores have closed until further notice due to COVID-19.
My first piece of professional jewelry, I sold right off my neck at age 18! But leading up to that was a childhood hobby of stone collecting, tumbling & wire wrapping. I received a collection of jewelry supplies from a neighbor at age 10 and taught myself how to make jewelry. I studied all types of arts & crafts, specializing in ceramics in grade school. I went on to study Fashion Design at Kent State University, as to not become a “starving artist”. When all my sketches were accessorized with intricate jewelry details, I started studying metal smithing, and then never looked back!
I created my brand for people with sensitive skin, like myself, in nickel-free sterling silver and 14k gold plated silver. I sell direct to customers so you never pay the high jewelry markups of retailers.
Now my passion is collecting rare natural stones, and creating designs that are striking, yet wearable for everyday, and having them hand made by the best artisans in the world. Supporting artisan handcraft is personal to me as its a way to create jobs that people love to do, and financially supports underserved communities. I am proud to work with Navajo Indians for the best quality mosaic jewelry, Italian craftsman for the best quality chains, Indian artisans for the best stone cutting, and Mexican metal smiths for the best silver smithing in the world!
If you are a lover of beautiful stone, a collector of one-of-a-kind treasures, and looking for quality dainty jewelry that won't break the bank, I am here to help!
