If you're reading this, then you've found me at my new website -- Yay! I have never blogged before, so bear with me.

I am very excited about the transition from designs-by-samantha to Luster.  To me, dbs felt very boring.  It didn't truly represent me or the pieces of jewelry I create.  The name was something I just threw out in the early days of jewelry-making and never changed it.  12 years later...here we are!  Luster came to me as I was searching for a word or phrase that was cohesive to my feelings about creating.  I like to make pieces that shine, but I also want those who wear my jewelry to shine from within. 

Over the next few months, you will likely see changes to my branding as I navigate this transition.  I assure you that my work will still be created with high-quality stones, crystals and findings. My price points will remain affordable.  My selection will be diverse. All of the things you have come to know and love about my work will never change.

Being creative, and making things with my hands has always been a part of me. I feel very lucky and grateful to be able to do what I love and call it "work". I am especially grateful to those who support me and my crafty ventures.  Thank you!

Until next time,

Samantha xo
