Royalty Rocks Jewelry
Royalty Rocks Jewelry was established in 2009. The one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry is designed to be elegant, sophisticated and timeless. Yvonne Hayes, owner and designer, always strives to find new ways to frame gorgeous gemstones to highlight their natural beauty.
What inspires her collections most is the exotic beauty of nature, whimsy and playfulness of youth, and the emotions that she feels as her hands create a thing of beauty. a combination of people, colours, dreams, and experiences have made her the designer she is today.
Yvonne strives to give her pieces intricate details and a magical appearance that makes the wearer look and feel beautiful. By combining classical and contemporary wire wrapping techniques she feels she can achieve that special look everyone is drawn to.
Each piece is made as unique as the wearer. The jewelry she creates is made using quality gemstones, sterling silver wire, gold-filled wire, copper wire, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and unique bead elements.
Currently, Royalty Rocks works by appointment for custom work, does home parties and has a beautiful online store.
Who is behind the business?
Yvonne’s passion for designing jewelry has been growing for many years. As a young girl she would use the jewelry her mother no longer wore and create new designs. The jewelry she designs these days is far more complex and made with high quality materials.
Yvonne is a mother of three children and feels her children are a source of inspiration. Eventhough she is a busy mother she still finds time to retreat to her studio where she can create pieces of art.
Her daughter Olivia has shown interest in designing jewelry. Olivia often watches her mother create beautiful jewelry. Yvonne gives her eight-year-old daughter pieces of scrap materials to work with. She watches her daughter make pieces of jewelry she can wear in several different ways, just as she did herself as a small child.
She explains, “Watching her use her imagination and create such versatile pieces inspired me to create the Liv Collection, which is named after her. The Liv Collection is a unique piece that can be worn in 15 different ways (as shown below)."
What is their philosophy in the business?
Yvonne strives to create pieces that are unique every time. When she is asked to do custom work she meets with her client to find out about their life, what they like and dislike. Then she makes a piece to fit into their lifestyle.
Keeping her work elegant and classy is very important to her. She loves seeing people's face when they find a piece they love. Yvonne says "It means a lot to me to make people happy."
