Robin Macek/YouMeUs Designs
Since moving South from Connecticut, I have been inspired by the beautiful natural surroundings of my SE North Carolina home, and by the 60’s and 70’s, the decades I relate to from my youth. Once I started spending time in Ocracoke, I felt even more creative energy because of the natural beauty, but also by what Ocracoke does to the spirit! And now the incredible has happened and I get to live and create on this magical island!
I make handsewn beaded leather wrap bracelets/cuffs, handsawn sterling silver gemstone statement rings, micro-macrame gemstone beaded watches/bracelets, handknotted gemstone necklaces, earrings, beach stone charm necklaces, and beaded bracelets. I believe jewelry should be fun, and wearable everyday and show a sense of humor. I don’t want to be taken too seriously as the designer, even though I love what I do and do take it seriously. I want my customers to know that their smiles tell me all I need to know..that we’ve connected through joy and humor…and a love for the good old days today!
I’m so excited to have my own store and to be able to bring everything I love to the island that has come to mean so much to me and my husband.
Please stop by and see us at the shop!
