Can a piece of jewelry reflect the essence of who you are?
One of my clients recently called me a jewelry visionary. I asked her what she meant and she shared…
“You have an innate ability to connect with people and get to the CORE of what they really want without them even knowing it!”
It’s true. I pride myself in taking the time to understand my clients on a deeper level, using my intuition to connect with YOU and your design style.
- Are you someone who considers yourself a true original?
- Do you LOVE to wear jewelry that no one else owns?
- Do you have a strong sense of personal style (maybe your friends are always asking about where you got something)?
- Does jewelry hold deeper meaning or sentimental value for you?
- Do you value unique, luxury design over a little blue box?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you are in the right place.
I LOVE to design for “originals” like you…
… the style makers
… the trendsetters
… the quality over quantity people who wear jewelry because it’s an heirloom or a treasure (rather than a fad).
I design bespoke custom commissions for exceptional people, just like you. Because you deserve jewelry as unique as you are.
Here’s my story…
My passion for design started as a child. I dreamed of creating wedding gowns and growing up, was always an artist in some respect. When I took my first jewelry fabrication class as a college elective, the seed was planted. My instructor became my mentor.
The rest is history. I started my first jewelry business as a hobby, designing for bridal parties, friends and families.
In my twenties, I quit my day job to follow my dream full time. That big leap resulted in my first legitimate brand, Tracy Matthews Designs, Inc. Over the years, I grew a pretty awesome following.
- My collection was sold in over 350 retail outlets all over the globe (ABC home, Sundance Catalog, Bloomingdales, Anthro)
- Celebs loved my work (Orlando Bloom, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, David Cooke)
- My media coverage was abundant (InStyle, Lucky, Real Simple, TV Shows and Movies)
And I won awards….

Why custom jewelry designs?
I made the switch from wholesale to custom commissions because TMD wasn’t making me happy anymore. It was the best decision I ever made.
I wanted to get back to what truly lights me up…
… working directly with clients like YOU and watching people cherish the one-of-a-kind pieces I design for them.
I love working one-on-one with my clients to create the “perfect” piece of jewelry. It’s all about combining YOUR personality with my vision and bringing to life a piece that complements your lifestyle, your personal style and your unique qualities.
An approach as unique as you are!
Like any artist, I have style influences. Mine come from fashion, art, vintage jewelry, nature, texture and color. When I am designing a piece for you, my viewpoint and these elements might be considered, however, it’s really YOU, the client, that I am looking at.
My desire is to create something you will cherish, an heirloom that will be treasured for many lifetimes…
I’m in NYC but YOU don’t have to be!
I live and work in one of the world most lush hubs for jewelry design. Don’t let that be a barrier for us working together.
In fact, my clients live all over the world! Wherever you are, I am here to help!
You don’t have to wear boring jewelry… let’s tap in and create an heirloom specifically for YOU!
