We understand that as a woman we want to feel more than beautiful. We want to sparkle, radiate confidence, and highlight our uniqueness.
After all, even as little girls we learn jewelry can ignite our special shimmer. When I was just 8 years old, I received a vintage ring from my Great-aunt Blanche. From that point on, I fell in love with vintage jewelry… a passion that would one day be my career.

It is a wonderful thing to share one’s passion with other women. To us our tiny boutique nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River in historic Cape Girardeau, Missouri, is more than just a boutique. We give unique experience for women to help you find or design the jewelry of your dreams. One bead at a time we design for boldly modern women with a little vintage flair. We offer both ready-to-wear and custom creations to capture your spirit. Each piece of handcrafted Sloan+Themis jewelry is of remarkable quality and is made in our in house atelier.

I hope you enjoy shopping with us today. If you have any questions or special requests, please reach out to me at claire@sloanandthemis.com.

Best Wishes,




Claire Bruce
