Classic, modern, blatant, edgy...Welcome to CaptiveLove!

About Us

Hi! It's me, Esther, the artist/designer/jewelry-maker behind CaptiveLove® Jewelry. I've been crafting jewelry since 1994.  Originally trained in fine arts, the twists and turns of life changed my path many times leading me here.

I started out creating mainstream contemporary sterling silver jewelry; when my wedding collection took off I focused on that for several years.  After an illness, I took silversmithing classes at the Visual Arts Center here in Summit, New Jersey.

One day a former writing partner asked me if I could make her a padlock necklace...and, as they say, the rest is history.

I opened my Etsy shop in 2013, and while very successful for 6 years, I decided I'd rather have my own website.  My dot com opened its doors in 2019. 

As I was a wild child, I have had experiences in many "alternative lifestyles."  You can count on me to be respectful, kind, reliable, and knowledgeable.

I am presently "owned" by a large, curvaceous cat named Gigi.
