Announcement   I hand-craft all my jewelry and clay components in my back-yard studio in Southern Oregon. I use traditional metal smithing and fabrication technique to build my work. The small porcelain works are made completely by hand, and fired in my studio.

I am currently working on over 40 etsy listings behind the scenes. I am just starting to make some of them live. This will be my first real jewelry shop. Please think about liking my shop so that you can come back later and see if you like the progress.

If you would like to find out more about my work and process please visit my about page.

About

WHAT YOU'LL GET FROM MY SHOP

If your looking for jewelry that is simple yet elegant….and especially flattering…..you have come to the right place. This is what I specialize in.

In my shop you can find that perfect pair of earrings to wear everyday to work, or something a bit more glamorous to catch the light and makes your eyes sparkle.

One of my pet peeves is that earrings should stay on and be functional, as well as look terrific. For instance, I make post earrings with no slip backs, for sporty girls to look awesome in while they jog.

I use Argentium sterling silver in most of my creations, which means that you wont be polishing up your jewelry any time soon.

Argentium tarnishes at a much slower rate, is brighter (closer to platinum) and is more hypo-allergentic….all this and it has a slightly higher silver content than traditional sterling!

I will ship your purchase in a natural, eco-friendly gift box....that way whether it’s for yourself, or your most beloved and dear friend, everyone will be pleased and delighted. I will even add a note, if you type what you want to say in the instructions at check-out.

I have made more than 35,000 objects from start to finish, so your lovely thing is bound to turn out pretty good. I am trustworthy that way.

ABOUT ME

Wow, that last paragraph was a bit over the top…but it’s true! I was a full time production potter (lot's and lot's of the same thing) for 15 years. I made functional kitchen wares and garden related items, and it it just kind of added up.

I love all crafts - my whole life seems to be me telling myself…too many crafts, cut back! But this did not stop me from learning metal smithing. I just could not resist it. Then after I learned to be a smith, I wanted to sneak bits of pottery into the jewelry where ever I could. Then instead of silver, I wanted to try copper because I could afford to make bigger objects, and hit them hardily with robust hammer blows.

Needless to say, "I love to manipulate raw materials from the earth".

I have even more crafts and arts that I work at, it gets confusing some times, but I wont change...I love working cross disciplines and melding various crafts. Working like this feels more like science, I am conducting craft experiments, searching for innovations and quirky solutions. Initially I only ever wanted to delight myself, but delighting other people was a surprising joy that I never saw coming.

When I set up my booth, I am blown away at the number of people who come back, or show me the gift they have received that they are so happy with. The biggest compliment is that they will say, “I have been wearing these everyday for a whole year, I love them that much”!

I truly appreciate your taking the time to read this and for visiting my shop. I hope that you can find something that reflects your personal style and hand crafted sensibilities.

Kind Regards, Holly Gonnella

Additional policies and FAQs
About Argentium sterling silver - This sterling alloy has a higher silver content, is much more tarnish resistant, hypo-allergenic, and brighter in color than traditional sterling silver. It contains no nickle and is always made from recycled silver scrap.
