Elaine B. Jewelry

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Silver jewelry is making a comeback which we find quite a nice contrast to the rich tones of brass and gold. Elaine B.'s jewelry features this metal prominently. Each of these geometric jewelry pieces are handcrafted in her Charlottesville, Virginia studio. 

About her work, Elaine says: "I create tiny sculptural worlds using traditional jewelry materials, incorporating geometric elements to make objects that are light and wearable but have a weighty presence".

We love this mix of delicate femininity and hard-edged geometry.

Kiersten Crowley Jewelry

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This lovely locally made jewelry line features organic shapes in brass, silver and oxidized sterling silver.
Kiersten's jewelry often features tiny details of silver droplets that mix among delicate chains and more earthy brass elements.
These necklaces, earrings and cuffs play perfectly for those of us that like wear our jewelry with denim or a fancy vintage skirt.

betsy & iya jewelry

Posted by Julie Beckett on

We know you love this jewelry line, because we love this jewelry line too! betsy & iya is always on trend with dynamic pieces that are hand cut, shaped and formed by their ace team of jewelry makers at their shop/studio in NW Portland.

betsy & iya started in 2008 in a coffeeshop with a notebook, a bright red pencil, and nothing to lose.  Among scribbles and coffee stains, the words “jewelry making” appeared in that notebook.

Betsy wrote it down, thought about it for a while, and then she made some jewelry.  And it worked, so she did it some more.




We want to take a moment to give a shout out to this local Portland business that just was named one of Portland Business Journal’s “100 Fastest Growing Companies” in Oregon this year – they ranked #64 with 96% growth over a 2 year period. Led by Betsy and Will, this small business has truly taken off. These guys are our heroes!

Stowaway Jewelry

Posted by Julie Beckett on

We’re happy to have this popular jewelry line made by local jewelry designer Taya Koschnick back in stock. If her name sounds familiar, that’s because she is also the designer/maker behind Tasi Designs.

Stowaway Jewelry is a voyage in a different direction for Taya.  Working with antique brass and rough stones, as well as Asian and African trade beads, she creates necklaces and earrings that are everyday wearable and super cool.

Taya comes from a family of makers, craftsmen, and artists: her mom and sister are jewelers and her stepfather, Ebrima, is a third generation trader in African art, textiles, and beads.
