About

Sparkle some everyday.

River and Birch sprung from a love of gemstones. As far back as I can remember, I have always been drawn to them—their origins and their unique properties. These days, I still enjoy collecting gems, but now I have the ability to create special pieces of jewelry where they can be showcased and shared with the world.

Each piece is created with wearability in mind, with my own two hands. I concentrate on clean lines with a mostly minimalist style, which provides versatility to its wearer. My goal is to create pieces that can seamlessly go from day to night, be dressed up or casual, and that they become some of your favorite pieces of jewelry to enjoy for years to come.

Sustainability is important to me and I try to be mindful of how I am affecting the planet, therefore I use recycled precious metals, I recycle or repurpose my scrap metal, and Precious Metal Clay is prevalent in my designs. I also incorporate my sustainability practices into my packaging.

    I love to create each piece from start to finish by selecting each gemstone and creating a little spot for it to be showcased and worn and loved for years to come. I am proud to be able to incorporate more and more eco-friendly options into my work.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Necklace and bracelet lengths can be customized. My necklaces come standard with 18 inch chains unless otherwise noted in the description. I am happy to add extenders or make them in the length you need. Simply send me a convo or make a note in the 'note to seller' section at checkout.

Cuff bracelets can be made to a larger or smaller size upon request also.

Rings are made to size when purchased unless otherwise noted in the listing description. Please remember to order 1/2 size up from your true size on wide rings.

Care instructions

Each piece of jewelry is packed with a care instructions card.

I recommend storing your jewelry in a zip-top baggie when not in use to slow the effects tarnish. If you notice your jewelry tarnishing, simply buff it with a soft cloth or a jewelry polishing cloth. Beware of harsh cleaners and if you elect to use a cleaner, please check instructions to be sure it is suitable for sterling silver.

Please note, jewelry cleaners will remove oxidation from pieces that have purposely been darkened and should not be used on these pieces.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece is placed on a jewelry card, wrapped in tissue paper and placed inside a matte black gift box that has my logo on the lid. (Please see my About section.) It is then tied with a ribbon. For your convenience, a care instructions card is also placed inside the box. If you would like the box wrapped in seasonal gift wrap, I am happy to do that at no charge.

I am happy to include a personalized note if the package is shipping directly to its recipient. Just send a convo or leave a note for me in the 'note to seller' section at checkout.

I do not include any pricing information in my packages with the exception of international orders, which require me to add a packing slip to the outside for Customs, which includes the cost.

Wholesale availability

Please inquire about wholesale availability, as I will consider it on a case by case basis at this time.
