handmade jewelry inspired by love, spirit, and nature

How We Got Started

Hi there! I'm Annette, it's nice to meet you! In 2007, I started Shining Light Jewelry® from my home in California. My studio is a humble 4.5" x 8" corner of my living room so that I can be close and accessible to my family. I am solely responsible for all aspects of my business and I do all of my work on a small wooden desk that my grandfather built by hand many years ago. I like to think that he would be proud that his granddaughter has taken after his entrepreneurial spirit!

I began making jewelry as a hobby, and with the encouragement of my husband, family, and friends I started selling my work online. My love for yoga and nature soon became a central theme in my jewelry, and I am excited to share it with you! I have now sold my jewelry all across the US and the world!

I design of one of a kind jewelry that has a spiritual feel to it. I use high quality "ingredients" to make sure each piece will last for years to come. My jewelry style is ever-evolving. I love working with natural elements because they serve as reminders of our unity with the world around us. Making jewelry brings me joy and I hope that happiness is reflected in my pieces!
