About Us

Cary & Jen Davis of Forestlily Designs

Meet Your Maker
Hi! I'm Jen Davis, self-confessed turquoise and sterling silver addict. I'm a southern California native living in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest 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
I love each stage of the fabrication process. I use sterling silver and fine silver to hand forge 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/polishing, and oxidation. No two pieces are alike or able to be perfectly replicated again.

Artist Statement
I believe that inside each one of us resides a soulful free spirit, unlike no other, who is braving everyday in a chaotic world to be their most authentic and earnest self. Through art and creative work, I believe we can expand our awareness and connect to the natural world, emerging kinder and more compassionate to ourselves, the planet, and all living beings. Using an intuitive design process inspired by nature, music, love, and family, I handcraft one-of-a-kind jewelry with a bohemian vibe for the individual who desires meaningful connection, originality, and soul in the jewelry they wear.

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, and we do not use animal products in our jewelry. I promise to always look for ways to be better.

Let's Be Friends. Really.
I'd love to hear from you. Please sign up for the mailing list (I promise not to blow up your inbox!), like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram for inspiration, collection sneak peeks, work-in-progress shots, upcoming art fairs, giveaways, and bench musings (a fancy term for photos of my dog, lol!) 

There is a lot of jewelry in the world to choose from. I am grateful you are here. It is my most sincere hope that you find a piece that speaks to your heart. 

Peace & love,
