Yes, we are very happy to accommodate wholesale orders. Please send a convo for details.

I graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in metalsmithing. I love copper. I love its color, and the way it moves, and the way it feels. I love how easily it forms to the imagination, and how grounded it will always remain. While silver calls up images of moonlight and mystery, and gold conjures sunshine and warmth, copper thinks in terms of earth and peace. Consequently, copper achieves an approachability unequaled by other metals. Copper begs to be touched, to be worn, when all other metals only desire to be…

While silver calls up images of moonlight and mystery, and gold conjures sunshine and warmth, copper thinks in terms of earth and peace.

As such, copper seemed to be the right material for me, here at Vagabond Jewelry. I am devoted to giving you tough, modern jewelry, that will go wherever you go, and won't break until long after you have. You're a bike messenger in the city? Great, make sure you order the right size cuff and you'll wear it all day. Whitewater rafting? You might want to stick with the word panels, or, of course, any pendant on a short piece of cord. More the snowboarding type? Anything here will be just grand. Surfers- we started our stainless steel line just for you- copper doesn't like the ocean. Do you have a particular active lifestyle that I haven't designed appropriately for? Please let me know!

On a more personal note, I love, in no particular order: little birds, old cameras, funny hats, old growth forests, world travel, running into wild deer on walks, my bicycle, used book stores, fairytales, sleeping late, working late, down blankets, the sound of woodpeckers pecking, old stories told in languages I don't know, skinny dipping in New England lakes, folk music festivals, trickster tales, Pete Seeger, 4am drunken philosophy with friends, sledding, climbing trees, snow forts, mountains in the distance, quiet, being on the road, getting lost, libraries, natural history museums, small boats, tall ships, mountain streams, waterfalls, walking barefoot.

There's a lot more, but that'll do, for now.
