In HER Words : In 2009, I embarked on a journey that I never thought possible.  This journey has been one of faith, healing, and love.  In 2009, after the loss of both of my parents within months of each other, I had the daunting challenge of lifting myself out of depression.  Having quit my job with the intent of being a caretaker for my Mom, I found myself without a job or a focus.  A broken down garden shed in our back yard made way for a new structure . . . a creative studio surrounded by lilacs and hydrangeas – a place for me to find my way back.

In August 2009, Tippy Stockton Jewelry was born.  I fell in love with jewelry design years ago, perhaps by the influence of a wide and varied design background.   I had always loved dabbling with beads, but had never imagined that I could make a living creating jewelry.  After my Mom passed away and I inherited her jewelry box, I was brought back to a time when I was a little girl playing dress up with sparkly jewelry and high heeled shoes that belonged to my Mom and Grandmother.  But the thing that stood out in this jewelry box was a collection of Rosary Beads from when my Mother was a Nun.  Yes, true story.  I knew at that moment that I wanted to somehow incorporate this look into my designs – in a way to honor my faith, but also a way to honor my Mother.  In October 2009, the unthinkable happened – Lucky Magazine featured a pair of my earrings in their magazine.  I guess you could say the rest is history.

My love of anything Vintage is the cornerstone of my little business.  A cast off locket or a rusty skeleton key have found a way to embellish a necklace, but also tell a story.   It makes me giddy to think that I can give new life to something old.   I love surprising a young bride with a gorgeous wedding ensemble, or a special necklace to commemorate an important event in someone’s life, or just a pair of sparklers to wear to a Christmas party.   Creating for my clients who enjoy wearing handmade jewelry is what makes my job so special.

  1. Patricia is an incredibly talented artist! I’ve never seen jewelry creations as amazing as those from Tippy Stockton. My daughter recently asked her to design necklaces and earrings for her maid-of-honor and all of her bridesmaids, and a special bracelet for the bride. She created the pieces using vintage pieces as well as hand-selected new pieces and the results were spectacular!
