Tough and Pretty Jewelry is a husband and wife team, Mike and Rachelle Stromberg.  We live, teach and make jewelry in our Chicago studio.

Our jewelry is a mixture of cast elements and fabricated metals with carefully chosen stones.

After a few years of inactivity we’re getting our jewelry back out there.

For years we were Mike and Mary Jewelry and we used the tag line”Tough and Pretty Jewelry”, so we decided to be Tough and Pretty, officially.  You can still view our past work on our Flickr page .

Stay tuned here for new design highlights and where to see the pieces in person in and around Chicago.
