Nichole Meyer was born with an entrepreneurial spirit and a love for beautiful gemstones. When she was only seven years old, she developed a hobby of polishing gemstones with her father using their rock tumbler. She thought the polished stones were absolutely beautiful and believed that surely her neighbors would think so, too. So, with great enthusiasm she went door to door selling her beautiful stones to neighbors who fought back giggles as they dug out their wallets.
Little did she realize that after working for nearly ten years in the credit card industry, she would again find an opportunity selling beautiful gemstones. After leaving her position to be a stay at home mom to her then six month old daughter, Nichole had the idea to turn her hobby and love for jewelry design into a business. Thus, Frosting Accessories was born in March of 2005. She started off designing jewelry for friends’ weddings. Soon her creations were on the shelves of a high-end children’s boutique in Cleveland. She then began selling her creations at parties and various fine arts and crafts shows throughout northeast Ohio.
Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted in Chardon, Ohio which is about 40 minutes outside of Cleveland. With an average annual snowfall of 106 inches, Chardon is notable for its location in the “heart of the snowbelt.” Nichole spends many winter days and evenings “stuck” in her house designing jewelry in front of a roaring fire. Using Swarovski crystals, sterling silver, gemstones, pearls, lampwork glass and a lot of creativity, Nichole creates designs that are perfect for any occasion.

When you wear a piece of handcrafted jewelry from Frosting, be prepared to receive many compliments! To us and our many customers, the right piece of jewelry is the Frosting on the cake!
