Candace Stribling hails from New York and moved to Washington, DC, for college. Now residing in Frederick, Maryland, her work as a metalsmith is inspired by geometric shapes, modern art, and architecture.
Her self-taught approach, supplemented by specialized classes at the Delaplaine Art Center, Baltimore Jewelry Center, and JewelryClassDC, has broadened her metalsmithing skills to design using sterling silver and gold. She believes in sustainability, so she uses recycled precious metals and traceable colored gemstones from suppliers who source from small-scale miners, ensuring that they make fair and livable wages.
Candace's mission is to ensure women of all shapes and sizes feel confident, beautiful, and strong while wearing her unique jewelry accessories – meant for special occasions or daily wear.
