UN-buttoned by Good Girls Studio

UN-buttoned...a new jewelry line by Good Girls Studio

In fashion, it's all about the details: the lining, the drape... even the addition of a luxury button plays a role in the overall aesthetic of the design. Inspired by the intricate details as minute as the simple means of closure, UN-buttoned repurposes function into fashion by transforming the button into the focal point, creating signature pieces of jewelry... unbuttoned.

UN-buttoned...authentic designer buttons reimagined int one of a kind jewelry!

Mother's Day Moments

Hope all you mommies got to spend time with your Mamma's yesterday or at least snuggle close to your kiddos! 

Thankfully I got to do both... 

Thee Good Girl and her Mom

Mother's Day necklace I made for my mommy

I thank God daily for The Boy…

My handsome hatchling
I absolutely adore this child 'o mine…
He has the same dorky sense of humor and love of sarcasm as his mamma…

Revamper of vintage jewelry, Johanna started designing her upscale One of a Kind jewelry line in 2007. Her designs can be found at retailers across the nation as well as on her website She is involved in local charity fashion shows as well as Redress Raleigh & fashionSpark runway events.
After a career in luxury goods retail & wholesale management she launched her jewelry line to fill a need that she found missing in the accessory market. Endless searches for vintage inspired jewelry led her to start rethinking her inherited vintage jewelry left to her by her late grandmother Mama Lou. Once she realized she could revisit the past by revamping antique jewelry she began scouring fleamarkets & estates sales looking for long forgotten treasure!
Along with her Ready to Wear line, Johanna custom creates “Living Heirloom” jewelry for you to pass along to future generations right from your own jewelry box. Custom wedding jewelry is perfect for the bride-to-be as something old & something new. Let her create your personal wedding jewelry with “something old” that you can continue to wear & pass down long after the wedding ceremony is over!
Check out her website for the current ready-to-wear collections. Good Girls Studio encompasses her love of historical costume, flea market thrifting and fine gemstones. Designs combining her romantic story telling & penchant for asymmetry fill her shop with whimsy.
