About Us

Welcome to Hardwear Designs!

We create mixed media jewelry and art using a variety of metals, recycled and vintage components, resins and stamping. Most of our pieces can be customized with your own words or phrases. Almost everything we do is made to order!

Our studio is located in Pleasant View, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. Hardwear Designs is made of a small team. We work hard every day creating pieces that will be worn, given, and enjoyed for a long time to come.  


Meet Our Team!


Courtney Loving - Artist & Owner

After 25 years in the culinary arts Courtney put her knife down and picked up a hammer. Metalsmithing began as a hobby in 2007, then transitioned into an unexpected business by 2012. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, and a full time creative spirit.



Sarah Smith - Artist & Part Time Superhero

Sarah is a highly talented Artist, Designer, Illustrator, and Part Time Superhero.  Since January of 2014 she has been hammering her way into our hearts.  She is a lighthearted spirit and we are thrilled to have her on our team!


Steve Purcell - Owner & Head of Entertainment

Steve decided to jump in head first and work with his wife Courtney to launch Hardwear Designs back in 2012. Since then he has been the glue that has kept this little business together with his consistent hard work and tremendous sense of humor.

Thank you for supporting a very small business of artists!!
