Tracey Graves started Becoming Hand Crafted Jewelry in 2007 as a hobby while staying home with her young twin daughters. In 2012 she began working full-time on the business. She launched her first wholesale line, and began working with shops around New England to create special pieces to serve as reminders of special places. Soon after, the business took another growth leap, and she opened her first shop and studio in Kennebunk, ME.
An avid reader, lover of words and quotes, Tracey takes inspiration from reading and the people & places around her. She's constantly bringing that inspiration to the jewelry she creates, translating the messages and reminders to pieces that will hold meaning to the person wearing it.
