Dandy Jewelry is an independently owned, handcrafted ceramic jewelry line based out of Asheville, North Carolina. With an eye for quality and craft, each ceramic gem is individually hand cut and glazed, rendering one-of-a-kind pieces that mimic natural gemstones. The unique glazing process makes Dandy Jewelry very distinct, immediately recognizable, and unlike any other jewelry on the market. With a small team, designer Andrea Lithgow creates her jewelry line in a cozy 875 square foot studio, open by appointment.

Andrea Lithgow | Owner/Designer

Dandy Jewelry was born out of Andrea's love of nature and a childhood spent creating, crafting, and sewing. Years spent as a professional seamstress, intermittent painting and design classes, and handbag design only served as fodder for Andrea’s future. In 2006, clay crossed her path, and changed her life course. She was instantly hooked on the endless possibilities inherent in such a diverse medium, and was off and running. Andrea still delights in sitting down with paper and scissors—as if she were still that little girl—to bring to life the multitude of ideas that come from a seemingly endless and mysterious source.
