At Hamilton Grace we strive to create unique, stunning pieces that work perfectly with both your everyday wardrobe as well as a more formal ensemble. Each necklace and accessory is designed and hand-made in our Hamilton Grace Designs studio. Our designs are made using gold-filled and sterling silver metals as well as semi-precious stone beads to create the perfect piece to compliment any wardrobe.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Our founder, Sarah, created Hamilton Grace Designs in 2005 after the birth of her daughter Hamilton "Millie" Grace. After spending many years in finance before Millie's arrival she had always, in the back of her mind, thought she would like to work in a more creative environment where she could express herself more artistically. When Millie arrived, she started to have batches of time here and there, during naps etc., so she started to dabble in a few creative projects out of her home. It really began the Christmas of 2005, when her husband gave her that sewing machine she'd wanted so she could teach herself how to make those pillow-covers she had been promising to make! Well...not only did she make those covers, but she started delving into other projects. Sarah began to design and fabricate women's and children's grosgrain belts and other accessories, and recieved such a wonderful response from friends and acquaintances that she started hosting trunk shows and began selling her designs at local retail stores. Having taken the plunge with designing accessories, she next focused on her love for jewelry. In 2012, she began to design and craft jewelry using gold-filled (different than gold-plated) and sterling silver metals, as well as semi-precious stone beads. Sarah has continued to grow her jewelry business over the years while also juggling motherhood. She is always designing new pieces and loves the additional inspiration and connection that comes with working with clients on custom designs!
