The Custom Design and Artisan Made Difference
Artisan-made jewelry is made with higher quality materials and more attention to detail, resulting in a more durable and long-lasting piece. Additionally, artisan-made jewelry is unique and one-of-a-kind, as each piece is individually crafted by an hand, rather than produced en masse. Buying from artists and independent brands supports small businesses and local communities, rather than large corporations. Finally, our jewelry pieces are created with sustainable and ethically-sourced materials, providing a more environmentally friendly option.
We believe everyone should be able to wear jewelry that brings them joy. We know many people with larger builds who prefer "feminine" pieces and petite people who love more "masculine" designs and thinking of jewelry in gendered terms just doesn't work for us or our clients.
We hope that people of all different body types will find something to love on our site. Because of this, we don't use traditionally gendered language on the site (such as having a men's jewelry section). Instead, we provide measurements of each piece on the detail page for that item along with information on sizing below.
If you are not sure about how something might fit or you have any other questions, don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to give more information or help in any way we can. Also, keep in mind that almost everything on our site can be customized and made in your size, so if you see something you love but want a different size, let us know and we will see what we can do!
