Hi! I'm Rosa, and I am based on a small island called St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, which is right in the middle of the Caribbean! I got my start as a silversmith and started learning my trade when I started working in a jewelry factory on island in April 2003. I worked my way up to floor supervisor, learning the jewelry production from start to finish. From carving molds for pieces, to the silver casting process, and finally packaging and shipping the beautiful jewelry pieces to customers. After the factory closed down in 2010, I decided to put my skills and love for sterling silver jewelry to the ultimate test and started my own business that same year. And that is how RJS Handmade Designs was born! My business has grown wonderfully over the past few years into what it is now. I put love into every piece I make, and I absolutely love what I do! So take a look through my sterling silver pieces. With the plethora of designs to choose from, something is bound to catch your eye!
