We first learned of Charmaine Vegas in 2014 as one of a handful of jewelers in Long Beach making strides with their minimal style. Now, nearly five years later, Vegas’ business and brand, Bless the Theory, still elicits a satisfying simplicity, but with a growing stock of material including precious stones, sterling silver, 14 + 18 karat gold and copper and bronze. Currently, her work is based on the human experience; flaws and healing.
