Hi! I’m Carlie Vergamini, owner of Crave Jewelry.

I’ve been making and selling stuff ever since I could hold a crayon for the first time and mix a pitcher of Kool-aid, but I had never imagined it would get me to where I am today. I am the creative force behind Crave and a strong advocate for following your dreams— I’ve even got a bumper sticker to prove it.
“In high school, I made it known that I’d make a name for myself in the fashion world…”
I always knew that I wanted a creative career and I am so thankful I had decided to pursue fashion over clown college. In high school, I made it known that I’d make a name for myself in the fashion world, but university and internships exposed me to some harsh realities, which made working under someone else sound much more appealing. As graduation rolled around the corner and the right opportunity for a big girl job never showed up, I took my future into my own hands and created my own job under my own terms.
Leveraging the skills and techniques I acquired from around the world including insight from the Queen’s English leathersmith, I have created pieces that are each individually hand cut and meticulously pieced together to create not just another “thing,” but a luxurious, leathery, and limited edition statement.
