gabrielle | made handcrafted jewelry

My first “real” job gave me the opportunity to go into steel mills. I was overwhelmed by the rivers of glowing red metal and the scale and sheer physicality of the steel production process.

My work as a jewelry maker recreates that excitement on a miniature scale. I love working with metal because it combines immediacy with permanence – each stroke of the hammer changes its shape forever. Plus there’s something a little bit thrilling about handling a torch!

My favorite material is sterling silver, which can be transformed with patinas as well as in shape. I emboss patterns onto sheets of silver using a rolling mill, and incorporate the patterned pieces into most of my work.

I individually hand-craft each piece of jewelry in my house in Oakland, CA. I would love to make something for you!

    I love the idea that someone would wear or give a piece I made as an expression of their personal aesthetic.
