Chandler Cartozzo of Chandler’s Dezigns

Handmade jewelry, one of a kind pieces of wearable art.  Specializing in wire wrapping using copper, silver and gold wire to create delicate spirals, zigzag patterns and intricate loops.

Chandler makes handmade jewelry and specializes in wire wrapping. She uses copper, silver and gold wire to create delicate spirals, zig zag patterns and intricate loops. She elegantly wraps stones and colorful glass beads to create one of a kind pieces of wearable art.

Since planning her wedding for a year and getting married in June 2014, Chandler has become extremely in tune with bridal jewelry. She has created a line of jewelry specifically for that special day and she can fashion a piece for everyone attending, from the flower girl to the grandmother of the Groom.

Besides creating jewelry, Chandler also repairs existing jewelry. Chandler can take a broken necklace and restore it to its previous glory or she can create a new and exciting piece out of the remnants of the existing necklace. With her experience of working in a fine jewelry retail store, Chandler is very skilled at restringing strands of pearls. The jeweler’s rule of thumb is to restring pearls every three years to maintain their lasting beauty and to ensure their solidarity as a strand. Chandler charges far less for pearl restringing than fine jewelers and she executes the same level of skilled handiwork.

Chandler’s Dezigns can be purchased at high trafficked spots in Nashville like The Nashville Schermerhorn Symphony Center’s gift shop, the art gallery at The Jewish Community Center and the 8th & Argyle vintage boutique. Chandler’s Dezigns also make many appearances around the Southeast at craft fairs and art shows. Her art sells in small boutiques and gifts shoppes in a handful of other Tennessee cities.

Chandler’s Dezigns is proof that following your dream to make money doing what you love is not a silly idea but is something to always strive towards.
