More About Sarah Radford
Chic Gems, etc.
Sarah grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from Wittenberg University, her professional life brought her to Chicago where she fell in love with the City. Sarah founded Chic Gems, etc. as a side-project in 2002. But when a corporate shake-up rattled her professional path in 2006, Sarah realized it was the perfect opportunity to turn her passionate hobby into a lifestyle and to take life into her own hands!
Sarah's lifelong interest in fashion began early. From playing in her mom's jewelry box to making woven bracelets as a child, interest has finally blossomed into the development of her own brand in Chic Gems, etc.
Sarah is inspired by everything around her; from a flower in Lincoln Park to an architectural detail on Michigan Avenue. She mixes classic and modern designs to create a new exciting twist for the woman who loves to be fashionable without being overly trendy.
Fun, flirty, and feminine, these gems will instantly add excitement to your wardrobe.
Her goal is for each woman to instantly feel chic and walk a little taller once they are wearing a piece from the Chic Gems, etc. collection.
Sarah has always designed her collections from materials that excite her such as quartzes, turquoise, labradorite, jasper, amethyst, pearl, glass, and acrylic. Her line incorporates bright colors, eye catching neutrals and silver accents with clean lines and a sleek sense of style.
Featured in many stores and counting, Chic Gems, etc. also supports a number of charities by hosting and supporting benefit events. Sarah supports The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Imerman Angels, and Avon Walk among others - often by creating custom pieces for charities to sell to raise money.
