Thoughtfully Designed, and One-of-a-Kind

Discover unique, hand-crafted jewelry pieces that are designed in beautiful San Diego, California. Nikki Sandoval is the owner and designer for My Urban Gems, and discovered her passion for beading about 17 years ago. Her and a few friends would get together every month to catch up and exchange different beads that they had gathered to design unique jewelry pieces to wear. The long necklaces are a favorite to make since they are very versatile, and can be made with a variety of different beads. Nikki is a wife and mother of three, and is ecstatic to be able to share her designs with the world with the support of her family.

The beads and different gems used in each jewelry piece are carefully selected, and are guaranteed high quality. Nikki has a great eye for detail, and enjoys creating one-of-a-kind pieces that can be enjoyed by anyone. Each piece is looked over closely, because it will not be offered for sale unless it is perfect! We appreciate you taking the time to visit us, and we want you to find the perfect piece to suit your lifestyle and taste.
