Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts

I am a full time jewelry designer, there is nothing more satisfying to me than to make something beautiful and sharing it with everyone. I guess you could say that I am somewhat of a “Techno Geek” and my love of anything to do with science and fantasy is apparent in most of my work.

I design a wide range of jewelry styles sure to appeal to any taste.

Modern industrial pieces which seem to defy gravity
Elegant Steampunk designs with a mechanical flair
Delicate and unique bridal sets
Traditional pieces for everyday wear.

I have always had a love for crystals, the rainbows of light that they emit have always appealed to me so it was only natural that Swarovski Crystals take center stage in all of my work.

Take a look around and let me know what you think of my creations, I love getting comments and critiques :)

If you have an idea for a custom piece that you would like made please don't hesitate to contact me via Email at: YouniquelyChic@me.com, I adore the challenge of working closely with someone to see their ideas become reality.

I currently sell all of my creations that you see here in my shop on Etsy:

Atropos by YouniquelyChic
Atropos
Atropos:  One of the three Kares, the agents of the Moirai (Fates), Atropos was the oldest and was known as the "inflexible" or "inevitable." It was Atropos who chose the mechanism of death and ended the life of each mortal by cutting their thread with her "abhorred shears." She worked along with her two sisters, Clotho, who spun the thread, and Lachesis, who measured the length. The Keres were cravers of blood and feasted upon it after ripping a soul free from the mortally wounded bodies and sending it on their way to Haides. Thousands of Keres haunted the battlefield, fighting amongst themselves like vultures over the dying. The Keres had no absolute power over the life of men, but in their hunger for blood would seek to accomplish death beyond the bounds of fate. Zeus and the other gods, however, could stop them in their course or speed them on. The Olympian gods are often described standing by their favorites in battle, beating the clawing death spirits from them. Some of the Keres were personifications of epidemic diseases, which haunted areas riven by plague. The Keres were depicted as fanged, taloned women dressed in bloody garments.

Thalassa v2: Heliotrope industrial choker by YouniquelyChic
Thalassa v2: Heliotrope industrial choker
Thalassa: also known as Neptune IV, is the second innermost satellite of Neptune. Thalassa was named after sea goddess Thalassa, a daughter of Aether and Hemera from Greek mythology. "Thalassa" is also the Greek word for "sea".  Thalassa is irregularly shaped and shows no sign of any geological modification. It is likely that it is a rubble pile re-accreted from fragments of Neptune's original satellites, which were smashed up by perturbations from Triton soon after that moon's capture into a very eccentric initial orbit.  Unusually for irregular bodies, it appears to be roughly disk-shaped.  Since the Thalassian orbit is below Neptune's synchronous orbit radius, it is slowly spiralling inward due to tidal deceleration and may eventually impact Neptune's atmosphere, or break up into a planetary ring upon passing its Roche limit due to tidal stretching. Relatively soon after, the spreading debris may impinge upon Despina's orbit.

A very dramatic statement choker is sure to be noticed... Black retaining rings wired together with 28ga silver wire with beautiful heliotrope Swarovski crystals

Dimensions: 2 1/4 inches tall x 1 1/4 inches wide
15 inch large loop silver plated chain with an extra long 4 inch extender chain for adjustable length

Urania v5 by YouniquelyChic
Urania v5
Urania: One of the nine Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. In Classical times she Ourania came to be titled the muse of astronomy and astronomical writings. In this guise she was depicted pointing to a globe with a rod.She was a daughter of Zeus by Mnemosyne and also a great granddaughter of Uranus. Some accounts list her as the mother of the musician Linus by Apollo, and Hymenaeus also is said to have been a son of Urania. She is often associated with Universal Love and the Holy Spirit. Eldest of the divine sisters, Urania inherited Zeus' majesty and power and the beauty and grace of her mother Mnemosyne.

Long and elegant steampunk necklace with retaining rings, 28ga black wire wire, Astral Pink Swarovski crystals, vintage clock gears and a lovely clock hand wired in such a way as to allow it to sway back and forth with your every movement.  These crystals appear topaz in color but upon catching the light they emit flashes of hot pink

I just found you and I wasted like, an hour going through your stuff. <3

Definitely going to be adding some of your stuff to my steampunk outfit, once I can decide on just a couple pieces.
