Hey Now! I'm Jen Davis, self-confessed turquoise and sterling silver addict (my motto is: #yesyouneedmoreturquoise). I'm a SoCal native living in the breathtaking PNW for 20+ years with my husband, Cary, and two children Forest and Lily. I've been making jewelry for over 30 years and began my silversmithing journey in 2017.
The Handmade Difference
Using an intuitive design process inspired by nature and music, I handcraft one-of-a-kind jewelry with an OG hippie vibe for the individual who desires not only high-quality materials and skill, but connection, authenticity, and soul in the jewelry they wear. I love each stage of the fabrication process. I use sterling and fine silver to handforge jewelry, combining traditional metalsmithing techniques with thoughtfully curated natural turquoise. I use a torch and simple tools to give each piece I create a rustic, soulful feel that shows evidence of the two human hands that have lovingly created each piece of wearable art. I immerse myself in every part of the process: design and sketching, stone choice, soldering, sawing, bezel making, stone setting, filing and polishing. No two pieces are alike or able to be perfectly replicated again.
It will never be lost on me that there's an environmental cost to this business. Our gemstones are handpicked for quality, our sterling silver is 100% recycled and/or third-party-certified ethically mined. I promise to always look for ways to be better.
