I am Detrina Kofroth, a jewelry designer, teacher and small business owner. 

I live in the beautiful Foothills of North Carolina and I come from a long line of craftsmen on both sides of my family. I have been professionally making crafts, for most of my life.

I have three wonderful children and four precious grandchildren. 

As my three children began to fly from the nest, I began to think about turning my part time craft experience into a full-time career. I realized after a lot of soul searching, that Jewelry design is my one true passion.

This Blog, A Jeweler’s Life, is dedicated to teaching jewelry techniques and design.

Through Alluring Brands, I help other craftsmen build their own business and brand. 

Alluring Jewelry specializes in artistic jewelry techniques and designs.

Find my tutorials here and on my Skillshare and YouTube Channels.


My business has grown and evolved over the last few years, but my Core Value remains the same.

My Core Values


  • To Educate the world about the wonderful variety of techniques available to Handmade Jewelers.


  • To add value to my Brand by providing excellent customer service and individualized attention to every client and student.


  • To Build and maintain long lasting relationships with all my clients and customers.


  • To expand my knowledge and share it with you on all my platforms.
