From Crayons to Beads

Rock & Hardware Jewelry developed from a love of gemstones. While cleaning out her home office, owner/designer Cindy Kassebaum stumbled upon some gemstones from years ago tucked away in the back of a closet. Immediately drawn to the beauty of the stones … Cindy was mesmerized by the colors, patterns and texture. She instantly knew she had to create something with them and right there, Rock & Hardware Jewelry was born. 

A self-taught jewelry designer, Cindy has always been involved with various art forms for as long as she can remember. One of her earliest memories from kindergarten was choosing art during free time while all her friends chose to play games. Cindy can still recall sitting at the art table by herself with a huge box of crayons and drawing an oversized chicken dwarfing a bright red barn. She was having the time of her life! Creating Rock & Hardware pieces takes Cindy back to that moment as she happily blends together many of the things she loves most about art: color, texture, intricate patterns and design. 

Rock & Hardware is committed to the notion that jewelry defines the look. Slide on a bracelet stack and transform jeans and a tee into something more. Throw on a leather jacket; add a long layered statement necklace and you’re ready for a night on the town. Rock & Hardware Jewelry is created using semi-precious gemstones, leather, wood, quality metals and thoughtfully sourced vintage finds transformed into an amazing piece of jewelry.
