Designs Handcrafted to Rough Perfection

Turquoise and Gold Earrings

Unusual precious and semi-precious gems, exotic color combinations and unique components begin to tell the story of Chessy Shay Designs.  Attention is given to the textural quality of each  handmade item as we select gemstones that have a character and roughness to them. Our pieces are made in limited editions to preserve their uniqueness, match fashion trends, and allow you to feel confident about wearing something that is truly individual.

About CSD

Created by artist and designer Jody Hoffman, her work expresses the diversity of Oakland, California. All pieces are crafted by hand,  and it is a point of pride that Jody pays close attention to the details and the quality of the materials and workmanship.  CSJ hopes to make you 100% happy with your purchase.  Please feel free to email Jody from the  contact page with any questions.  "I always love to hear from customers!"
