About

Fragile Industries started with a hammer. My great-grandfather, George Washington Hammers, was a blacksmith and iron artist. The women of my family are artists and creators. After the expected path, I established my freedom with a hammer in 2004 and haven't stopped yet.

I gather my materials from all over, finding new treasures and including recycled parts of vintage and antique jewelry from my collection and travels. I live near the beach and work with shells and beach glass I find there. I'm inspired by the latest trends, a nod to the past, and an artist's eye. I will not sell a piece I would not wear myself.

Effortless, glamorous, fun, flirty, rich, and sometimes quirky and edgy. You'll have stories told about you when you wear something from Fragile Industries Studios.
