A few years back, I purchased a pair of OldBlood earrings and, somewhere along the way, managed to lose one of them. Morgan made replacing the lost earring a breeze, and I purchased this necklace and a pair of the inlay starburst earrings at the same time. The necklace and earrings are beautiful, with durable finishes and the perfect weight - enough to hang gracefully without feeling heavy. They arrived well-packaged in lovely gift boxes and are easy to dress up and dress down, depending on the occasion. I'm delighted to add these items to my jewelry box!

Thank You, Veronica! It was so nice to connect and I'm happy that you got that lonely earring a new mate = )
Long time coming....
Old Blood Jewelry and Wears was started in 2012 by Morgan Jamison. A 2009 graduate of the University of the Arts Jewelry/Metals Program, I have been making jewelry for as long as I can remember. It started by picking up treasures on the ground as a child and wearing them, and in a sense, that's still how it remains...The fascination with the things I see and places I find.
I see Jewelry and the things you choose to carry on the body as more than just an expression of identity and as a maker, I see the things we create as more than just an art form. It is a human impulse and it is just as old as we are. Even when we are making something new, the need we are answering is an old one.
I make jewelry with the intention of empowering the wearer and captivating a viewer. I employ many processes and materials in my work, rarely does a piece have just one process implicated or material used. Color, contrast and textures figure highly into my aesthetic and design decisions.
Our studio is located in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where all of the jewelry is handcrafted by Myself and production assistants.
