About

Jewelry to Feed Your Soul (and mine!)

I am Julie Morris. I'm a silversmith living and working in the beautiful city of Portland, OR. A prairie girl at heart, I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and then spent most of my adult life so far in Kansas before spending several years in Vancouver, BC and now Portland. The prairies will always be my home and the mighty bison will always hold a special place in my heart, hence his prominence in my shop name and branding.

Working with silver and stone is my heart's work. I do it because I love it. I do it because it makes me feel alive. I do it because I can't imagine not doing it.

All of my pieces are made from scratch in my studio and many are one of a kind. Every silver and gold component except for chain is hand sawed, filed, soldered, and finished with love by my own two hands. Each design is born of my own experience and imagination. The creative process for me is much like a birth. There is some of my heart and soul in every piece.

Check out my blog for a behind the scenes look into my studio, my creative process, and my life. Come on by and see what inspires the Buffalo!

Additional policies and FAQs
RING SIZING
Most rings with set stones cannot be resized so please be sure of your ring size before ordering.

Men's wedding bands/bands without set stones can be resized and I do offer one free resizing with purchase (you are just responsible for the shipping both ways). Please note that resizing takes about two weeks, plus shipping time, so take this into account if you need your ring for an event such as a wedding. 

CUSTOM ORDERS
I am happy to take on a limited amount of custom work at a time. Click the "request a custom order" link from within my shop to get on my list. After the payment of a deposit (depending on the estimated final cost of the finished work, but no less than $50) I will collaborate with you to create something personally yours while remaining true to the Buffalo Lucy aesthetic. Please note that I retain the copyright to custom order creations and reserve the right to reuse designs or design elements in future work. Please note that custom orders are not refundable.

CARE AND CLEANING OF BUFFALO LUCY JEWELRY
Since almost all of my silver jewelry is intentionally oxidized, I recommend that you don't use any type of commercial jewelry cleaner or abrasive on it. Doing so will remove the patina and dramatically change the look of your piece. Instead, I recommend simply cleaning your jewelry with a soft-bristled tooth brush and mild dish soap. If you feel that your piece needs extra-special attention, a mixture of water and baking soda (again, applied with a soft-bristled toothbrush) should do the trick! Sunshine brand polishing cloths are also an excellent option!

While my jewelry is crafted to last, as with any piece of handmade jewelry, it deserves respect. Please wear and store your jewelry with care.
