When The Artisan Group invited Courtenay J Designs to take part in the Golden Globes gifting the company
had to get creative. "With a busy holiday production schedule ahead, I knew we wouldn’t be able to produce
the required 100 pieces, so we decided to include business cards instead," said Courtenay Madsen,
designer/owner. “The cards have QR Code technology, so a quick point and shoot with the smart phone is
all it takes to get to Courtenay J Designs online, where our hand-stamped and personalized jewelry is

not heard of the company to take a look. As a follow up, it will be gifting its “Love Infinitely Hand Stamped
Necklace” to celebrities at
GBK's Gift Lounge for the 2013 Academy Awards in February.
Courtenay J Designs creates on-trend yet classic, mixed metal, hand-stamped pendants , necklaces,
bracelets, earrings and rings in sterling silver, copper and 14-karat gold filled. The fun and affordable
designs, which can be personalized, are whimsical, romantic, inspirational or even literary, depending on
the stamping. Whether incorporating quotes from the Bard (“Shakespeare in Love”) or fondly recalled quips
ala Peter Pan (“Happily Ever After”), the Collections illustrate Madsen’s love of all things literary and her
passion for mixed metal adornments.
Mixed metal jewelry is incredibly beautiful and rich looking, and versatile too,” remarked Madsen. “It is our
signature look and what distinguishes us from other hand-stamped jewelry companies out there. Whether its
our Peter Pan necklace in copper and bronze or our Family Necklace in sterling silver and copper, mixed
metal is hugely popular with our customers.”
Every Courtenay J Designs piece of jewelry is custom-made to order by Madsen herself, out of her studio in
Melbourne, Florida. Courtenay J Designs is active in support of charitable groups and donates jewelry to
