      BBON: What inspired you 20 years ago to start making jewelry?

        Ruby: I was a stay home mom and loved doing crafts. I saw a bracelet class and took it and I become obsessed with creating pieces! Though, I'm pretty much self-taught. Lots of reading, hands on designing and books!

          BBON: Ruby Jewelry is custom made to order, making it a very personal treasure. Thus, you must have many stories about creating particular jewelry for clients.

            Ruby: Well I love designing custom pieces. My favorites include a custom bangle that I designed for a friend of mine for his wife. Each piece I make can be custom created depending on the person's likes and color favorites. I also have created mothers bracelets for new mothers. Those are always fun to design.

              BBON: Explain the process of making custom jewelry?

                Ruby: I usually start with a metal, like sterling silver or gold filled, then decide on color and the choice of gemstones, pearls or Swarovski crystals. I mainly design in my head but sometimes draw the piece out.

                  BBON: Do your clients generally have an idea of the type of jewelry they want when placing a custom made order?

                    Ruby: Yes they usually have a color in mind and what type of metal they want. I usually take the designing into my own hands from there.

                      BBON: Where can people purchase your jewelry?

                        Ruby: It can be purchased at Truly Ruby Jewelry and also at Full Bloom Cottage in Brea. It will soon be available at Tempo Urban Kitchen and also La Petite Florist on Brea Blvd. You can also see all my creations at Truly Ruby Facebook.

                          BBON: What are the most popular pieces of your jewelry collection?

                            Ruby: I would have to say bracelets are the most popular. Crosses sell really well also.

                              BBON: Turnaround time probably depends on quantity and type of jewelry, most likely, but on average, how long does it take you to provide a customer with custom jewelry?

                                Ruby: It really depends on the piece. Because they are custom designed, I usually say about two weeks but itโ€™s possible they can be done sooner than that.

                                  On a more personal note...

                                    BBON: How long have you lived in Brea?

                                      Ruby: I've lived in Brea about 17 years.

                                        BBON: Tell us a little about your family?

                                          Ruby: We are a family of four. I have three beautiful daughters, raised in Brea, and a few Chihuahuas ๐Ÿ™‚

                                            BBON: What are your favorite hangouts in Brea?

                                              Ruby: My favorite spots include Tempo Urban Kitchen, Cha Cha's and Bruno's .
