Popnicute is an abbreviation of POPular, uNIque, and CUTE. In this name lays my hopes that my jewelry will be popular one day and to always come up with unique, original designs that are irrefutably cute and charming! 🙂
YES. I make every design by hand. I don’t use molds and/or a press unless stated otherwise. I’m also building a good relationship and supporting lapidary artists in the USA by purchasing their hand cut stones. My jewelry are proudly handmade in Quincy, Illinois.
NO, I won’t make copies of someone else’s designs. That’s against the copyright laws as well as my business and personal ethics. However, I’d gladly take the design as an inspiration and later create you a new design in Popnicute’s style. I promise you the end design won’t look anything like the sample 😉
I have a Bachelor degree for Visual Communication Design which I believe strongly influenced my design aesthetic. Aside from that, I’m mostly self-taught from books, online courses, and tutorials. Big thanks to the internet and jewelers around the world who have been so generous in sharing their knowledge.

Argentium silver is a new breed of sterling silver that contains higher silver content than the standard sterling silver. They added germanium to the alloy replacing some of the copper content which in turn made it highly tarnish resistant when compared to traditional sterling silver. Argentium silver is made with only RECYCLED SILVER and NICKLE-FREE. For more info about argentium silver, please go to Metal Facts page.
