Announcement    Welcome to Intrepid and thanks for supporting this shop!

I want to take a moment and thank ever customer who has supported this shop over the years, especially 2020!! This has been a crazy few years and Intrepid never would've survived without our customers support. Running a business is hard enough with two small kids but now, with both kids home so often because of COVID, life is INSANE!! Orders ship very quickly but we sometimes need 24-72 hrs to respond to email inquiries. We also do a ton of markets and festivals throughout the year so we stay very busy. Most days our inbox is swamped so we appreciate your patience! Please don't leave a 1 star review saying "shop over never responded" If you immediately don't hear back.

Please understand, Intrepid Jewelry is a small, family owned business with a FAMILY FIRST POLICY. What that means is that every person working for Intrepid has a family and puts their FAMILY FIRST above profit. That has little to no impact to you as a customer but occasionally might affect you if you contact us during the holidays or over the weekend. We reserve this time to spend with our family and focus on them solely and we hope you understand. Any emails sent, or orders placed, after 4pm on Friday will not be handled until the following Monday. If you email us on a major holiday, we will most likely not respond until the following business day. Occasionally, kids come home sick from school and in that situation we go home and take care of them. Twice a year the school district has early dismissal for parent conferences, during those times we will be off early to spend the afternoon with our kids. We value our customers very much but place our FAMILY FIRST in every situation. At Intrepid we feel that as small business owners the values of family are slowly being compromised by American capitalism and we strive to do better.

Large Gauge Jewelry, designed for those who are fearless!

Hello,
I started designing large gauge body jewelry over two decades ago. I had begun stretching my ears and noticed a huge void in the market for comfortable, durable jewelry. I started traveling overseas around that time and met my wonderful master carver, who still helps me to this day bring my designs to life.
I named my company Intrepid Body Jewelry because I felt brave and fearless at the time, traveling all over the world by myself, and noticed my customers had matching Intrepid personalities. I also wanted to honor my father who was a pilot stationed on the USS Intrepid during the Vietnam war.
These days I'm raising a family and running my small business out of my home. I feel blessed everyday to be able to do what I love and call myself boss!

Thanks for stopping by my shop!

Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Welcome to Intrepid Jewelry. For over two decades I've been designing and creating large gauge body jewelry from Horn, bone, wood and stone, all this time working with the same master carver who help bring my most complicated designs to life. I've recently committed to using only sustainable resources and for that reason I'm no longer making jewelry using Ebony Wood, Abalone, or Mother of Pearl. Any jewelry offered in these materials is the last of what I have and will not be re-produced.

I am also very proud to be the creator of MAGNETIC CLASP GAUGED EARRINGS. This incredibly innovative design allows women to wear fun and dangly earrings that are comfortable and easy to wear. More of these designs can be seen here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/Intrepidjewelry?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=25029619


I strive to offer unique and affordable jewelry in renewable and sustainable materials that have a limited impact on the environment. I hope you enjoy my designs.

Thank you,
Hillary Huff
