Ruth Castillo-Roeder
I'm a San Diego State University graduate. I've worked as a graphic designer for an electronics store, comic book studio, retail store franchisor, and magazine publisher. I'm currently employed at a business software company.

I first started making jewelry because I wanted to create something personal. I create a neckace to show my love for a person, place, or thing. I soon realized the people who like the necklaces have their own story to tell.
WHO ARE WE

We are two individuals based in Southern California who happen to be married to each other. We have come together professionally to create a company that is built on passion and enthusiasm for what we do and create.

Ed Roeder
Since graduating from San Diego State University, I've been working professionally as a graphic designer since 1996. But I have been an avid artist long before that time.

In addition to designing, I love to illustrate. I attended the Watts Atelier studying portraiture and anatomy drawing, and painting. My areas of expertise are in graphite, watercolor, oil and digital art. My favorite subjects are drawing portraits and animals.
