About Jewels of the Vineyard
Jewels of the Vineyard is a handcrafted leather bracelet studio based in the wine country of California. I am Cheryl Thompson and I am the owner, sole designer and doer of everything else; a drinker of fine wine and lover of great food.
Jewels of the Vineyard celebrates my love of living in the wine country and creating beautiful bracelets from leather and beads and all things extra special. Each bracelet is beautifully packaged in a leatherette pouch with anti-tarnish lining. Jewels of the Vineyard combines handcrafted goodness with fine leathers and beads for a fashionable and current aesthetic. I call it leather dressed up as bangles, wraps and cuffs. My products are meant to bring a smile to those that wear them and those that admire them. I hope you love them! I know I loved making each and every one of them.
About My Work
All designs are created and made by my very own little hands in the workshop. I have looked in every nook and cranny around the world for hidden beads, leather and gems to use in creating Jewels of the Vineyard bracelets. The happy colors of leather from Spain, Italy and Greece are my most favorite leathers to use. The Jewels of the Vineyard collection is made up of beautiful items exquisitely handmade with attention to detail and unique design. Each bracelet is lovingly designed and configured from elegant leather wrapped bands, hammered and riveted elements, wrapped wire, hand dyed, painted and cut leather. Most bracelets are made with the oh-so-easy magnetic clasp. I do not like chasing a little clasp around my wrist and made sure my customers won’t have to.
Jewels of the Vineyard bracelets favor shops that cater to clientele seeking unique, handmade jewelry and recognize quality of construction and design and those who value small businesses as much as I do.
