Lithic Design strives to create artisan-made, one-of-a-kind jewelry with natural gemstones and metals. Most designs (other than recurring series) are unique and will be recreated quite the same way. Each piece is made from scratch using sheet metal, wire etc. that is hand fabricated into a finished product. Everything is handcrafted by me (Kaley), and even some of the stones are hand-cut here in my studio.

I'm always up for making custom items. I'd also be more than happy to make a matching pendant, set of earrings, etc. for your purchase.

I'm happy to help in any way I can. Je parle un peu de français si vous préférez!

Please feel free to ask me about payment plans and layaway!

Info on Sterling Silver and Copper:

Sterling Silver:

The sterling silver used at Lithic Design is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper . All of my sterling silver will tarnish naturally over time unless otherwise indicated. I personally love the way silver looks as it ages. Silver is easy to clean with a simple polishing cloth. Two easy options are keeping your jewelry in a small plastic baggy or storing it in an anti tarnish jewelry case. If you are still concerned about this, it may be possible to add an anti tarnish coat to the piece of jewelry you are interested in. Send me an Etsy "convo" and I can let you know!

Copper:

Copper will tarnish just as silver will over time (see above for storing and cleaning). Many people ask if wearing copper will turn their skin green. There are several factors that play into this including how much you sweat, how long you wear the piece for, and even the pH of your skin. Any contact with excess skin oils will eventually cause this reaction to happen, so it helps most to wipe your jewelry off with a soft cloth after wearing it. This is also helpful with brass jewelry.

Allergy Info:

Lithic Design NEVER uses nickel, but if you have a copper allergy or any other concerns with earrings, I would be happy to work with you to find a suitable hypoallergenic ear wire. Titanium seems to be the best option- I keep it in stock for any such requests!

Brutalist perfection. So perfect for my style, in every way ... color, stone, proportions, brutalist simplicity. Thank you for this creation!

About

Lithic Design

Lithic Design started with a basic metalworking class that had me absolutely hooked. A late diagnosis of Lyme Disease left me with multiple health issues and cut my college carrier short. As a result of ample time, I delved deeper into metalsmithing and have found a lifelong passion. Since then, I have been self-taught; picking up new techniques all the time.

Much of the work I do is inspired by nature, architecture, and historical design. I have a great love of natural stones and making settings based around their individual characteristics. Currently, I have been enamored with Art Nouveau and Jugendstil, and their incorporation of fluid curves and aspects of nature. Many of my influences have come from designers like Lucien Gaillard, René Lalique, and Georges Fouquet.

On the side, I am a gardener, tea enthusiast, and general hobby collector.

Sterling Silver:

I personally love the way silver looks as it ages. Silver is easy to clean with a simple polishing cloth. Two easy options are keeping your jewelry in a small plastic baggy or storing it in an anti tarnish jewelry case. Another trick is adding a silica bag to your storage container to absorb extra moisture (these are the little packets you find in shoeboxes, etc.). If you are still concerned about this, it may be possible to add an anti tarnish coating to the piece of jewelry you are interested in. Send me an Etsy "convo" and I can let you know!

Copper:

Copper will tarnish just as silver will over time (see above for storing and cleaning). Many people ask if wearing copper will turn their skin green. There are several factors that play into this including how much you sweat, how long you wear the piece for, if you wear lotions and other beauty products, and even the pH of your skin. The best thing you can do is to wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after wearing it. This is also helpful with brass jewelry.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Ring Sizing:

Please feel free to contact me for a sizing chart or to order a ring sizer.

Necklace Length:

Most necklaces can be shortened or have longer chains made by request. Please contact me before placing your order if you have a length request, and I will try my best to accommodate it.

Allergy Concerns

Lithic Design NEVER uses nickel, but if you have a copper allergy or any other concerns with earrings, I would be happy to work with you to find a suitable hypoallergenic ear wire.

I keep titanium wire in stock for custom ear wires as it is even more hypoallergenic than stainless steel, which contains a small amount of nickel.
