My name is Chelle Lewis and I am the face of Jicel. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, businesswoman, graphic designer and an artist. I’ve loved gemstones since I was a young girl. My grandfather gave me the love of gemstones. He was a rock hound and loved to cut and polish gems. He even made a few pieces of jewelry.
In 2008 a year after I started dating my husband, we started designing and creating sterling silver jewelry. We’ve made a lot of pieces in our first few years.
In 2017, 4years after we moved to the country, I decided to start it up again. I now sell my jewelry locally at our antique store, Old School Antiques in St. Joseph, Tennessee and online at Jicel.com.
My company name pronounced, “Gisselle” was named after my granddaughter’s middle name. Even though she was only a year old when it started, years later, she loves to create too.
When something is handcrafted, it is special. Wearing something handmade allows you to connect with the artist.
I use a wire wrapping technique which creates a beautiful daisy chain effect. It is secure and beautiful at the same time. I create my own designs and assemble the jewelry myself. You won’t find any mass production here. In fact, most of my jewelry pieces are limited to 1-5 pieces.
Each piece is made with real gemstones set in sterling silver and gold/rose gold vermeil. In my gold and rose gold vermeil jewelry, I use gold-filled wire which is more valuable than sterling silver and will not chip. In my Leather Knots collection, I use only real leather.
I try and bring the best value to my customers and I stand behind my work.
Please enjoy shopping Jicel and let me know if there is anything you need.
Chelle Lewis has been designing and creating jewelry since 2008.
