Hi, my name is Cindy Shafer. I am a local artisan and crafter based in Sterling, Virginia. About 7 years ago my friend Linda introduced me to beading. I fell in love with designing my own unique pieces using natural stones, pearls, mixed metals and crystals. Friends encouraged me to start selling my pieces. I was hesitant, but after my first craft show I was hooked and Classics By Cindy was born. Eventually I began to focus my designs using leather. I now offer a large variety of leather bracelets, most designs have a magnetic clasp making them very user friendly. Yes, I still design necklaces using beads and mixed metals, but I always try to incorporate leather. I hope you enjoy your visit and find something that fits your style!
