Permanent Jewelry

Timelessly You Jewelry Timelessly You Jewelry

We offer permanent jewelry and engraved custom jewelry, both of which we can customize on-site to create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces for those who want something unique and meaningful. As is probably the case with most artists, I started because it was something that I myself wanted! I was not historically a “jewelry person”, but that’s just because I don’t like having to think about it every day. So being able to have jewelry that stays on, and I don’t have to worry about taking on and off was very appealing to me. Plus, I can’t lose jewelry that I can’t take off and put in random places around the house! After a while, I found I wanted to customize my pieces more than what I found commercially available. So, we invested in our laser engraver and fixed that problem! Now we can not only create jewelry that’s effortless but is personal and absolutely unique.

Breezy Hill Meadworks Breezy Hill

Originally established in 2019, we’re a farm meadery located in Smithfield, VA. We’re considered a “farm meadery” because we produce and harvest at least 51% of the honey from our own hives to make our meads. Our hives are strategically placed throughout Isle of Wight County based upon the winds and what nectar sources are located nearby. Farmers like to have our hives on their properties because having bees nearby to germinate the crops can almost double the yield of crops produced. This kind of makes it a symbolic relationship, as we get nectar collected from crops and plants on our property (which ultimately becomes honey) and they get more crops. We also use beehives byproducts, such as beeswax, burr bomb, etc. to make other products such as candles and soaps.
