Cindy has been drawn to the jewelry cases at her favorite shops and boutiques for as long as she can remember. In 2008, on a mission to find the perfect bead for a chandelier she was planning to restring, Cindy became sidetracked by all the natural gemstones she discovered and instead was inspired to take a jewelry class. Cindy Schulze Jewelry was established in 2010. With a life-long appreciation of both fashion and nature, inspiration for Cindy's jewelry comes from travel, trends, and beautiful things.

Cindy enjoys creating a collection of pieces with a simple aesthetic that can be worn from day to night. Most of her handcrafted, designed, and curated jewelry is made with 14K solid gold or 14K gold-filled metal, often accompanied with natural diamonds and gemstones. She continues to learn the craft of metalsmithing and jewelry design, and uses various techniques for her pieces --a process that has turned her into a perpetual "toolaholic."
