 Born and Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, I relocated to North Carolina in 2007 to be near family.  Shortly after that I launched Sylvia and Vivian's.  Many people ask me "are  you  Sylvia or Vivian"?  The answer is neither.  While selecting a name for my company nothing seemed to really fit.  Then it dawned on me, why not pay tribute to the two women who had the most influence in my life, my sister, Sylvia and my mother, Vivian.  Both were elegant women whom I admired and who loved jewelry as much as I do.  The name was to be a tribute to them.
 
 As a young child I watched and admired my mother make beautiful jewelry from tiny sea shells.  I dreamed I would do the same when I grew up.  However, since falling in love with natural gemstones, my jewelry designs have taken a different direction.   My collection includes an eclectic mix of jewelry styles.  The designs stem from natural elements and are one-of-a-kind.  The natural gemstone I use in each piece is chosen specifically for its unusual characteristics, color & size.  Often the design includes jasper, Brazilian agate, lace agate, amethyst or malachite.  Sometimes I run across a stone that I've never used before (such as Red Creek Jasper), I fall in love with it and make it part of my collection of stones.   I use many types of metals, beads, pearls and other design elements that enhance the beauty of the natural gemstone, so that each piece represents a unique creation.
 
 In 2015 I expanded my designs using natural gemstones with hammered copper made from different sizes of copper tubing as well as copper sheet and copper wire.  The jewelry designs I offer through Sylvia and Vivian’s are one-of- a-kind, hand crafted originals.
 
 I believe there is truly nothing more special than having an original piece of wearable art that only you own.
