About Cloaked in Confidence
Emma founded Cloaked in Confidence in 2021 during her undergraduate career at the Carlson School of Management. Cloaked in Confidence offers handmade and custom crystal jewelry. Creating jewelry pieces started as a hobby for Emma and soon became a way to adorn herself when she lacked confidence. After graduation, Emma was presented with an exciting opportunity to delve further into her passions of creating jewelry and owning a business.

Emma is guided to create jewelry that offers her customers the ability to feel confident, healed, and empowered. Emma’s love of crystals and natural gemstones focuses on enhancing her customers' lives and well-being. Cloaked in Confidence’s designs are guided by Emma’s creativity and feelings about the world around her. Emma designs and crafts every piece of jewelry in her home studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Emma's designs help her customers take up the space they need to become the most confident versions of themselves.

About Emma
Handcrafted Jewelry Designer Based in Minneapolis, MN

Emma has always been interested in expressing herself through art whether that takes form as a musician, singer, theatre actress, painter, or jewelry artist. Emma enjoys the creative process as a form of meditation for her soul. In struggling to find a way to bring crystals and their healing properties with her, she decided to create jewelry. Emma feels that her jewelry will help others to find their inner magic.

Emma is a local artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her yoga teacher training and daily yoga practice introduced Emma to the many benefits of crystals, essential oils, meditation, and more. All of Emma’s jewelry is handmade with high-quality materials and unique to each customer. Our crystals are cleansed with incense and charged by the full moon's energy. Emma’s small woman-owned business was built from the ground up with the intention of allowing you to wear your crystals in a funky and creative way. Emma’s earrings empower you to feel ‘cloaked in confidence’ as suggested by her company name. Cloaked in Confidence hopes you feel grounded and re-energized when you wear our crystal jewelry.
