About Us

Fresh Home + Gift grew out of my 12 year career as a special events floral designer. I absolutely loved my job and the opportunity it gave me to be creative, but the long hours and physicality of working with flowers grew heavy. I was inspired to try my hand at something entirely new and different. Creativity and design have always been interwoven throughout my entire career so I knew I wanted to do something in that lane.  I've always loved jewelry, but I often struggled to find simple, clean, everyday designs that were both beautiful and affordable. I began to design pieces for myself, and when someone would compliment it, I'd sell it right off my neck. And so it began, a small jewelry design business out of my home where I had one holiday open house a year, to participating in dozens of Pop-Up Markets a year throughout the Triangle area and having my jewelry in local museums and boutiques. I make jewelry and gift items that are simple and affordable - timeless pieces that can be dressed up or down, designs that appeal to a wide variety of clients. I truly love what I do and being  part of this creative community! Thank you all so much for supporting small and local, it means the world to designers like me!
