About Tracy Cormell & String of Jewels

Before String of Jewels, I was a speech pathologist and had the fantastic opportunity to work with a spectacular group of inner-city children with special needs. After 14 years and a little burnout, I decided I needed a change. So with both feet, I jumped into the world of design. Because really, how hard could it be? Right?


After several years, lots and lots of mistakes, and some trial and error, I have finally found my stride. The creative chaos that is my workshop is in Freeland, Maryland. All of my personalized cuffs, precious metal clay pendants, and hand-stamped jewelry are forged in my studio. My fingers are usually black (from polishing), and my clothes are typically layered with sanding dust, but I wouldn't trade a thing.

Someone once told me that when they wore jewelry given as a gift, it was like receiving a hug from the person who gave it to them every time they wore it. And I love that!
