About northwestgoods

Sales 5,897
On Etsy since 2007

Second generation metal working crafters experimenting with new materials, designs, methods, and learning as we go.

I grew up with parents who made and sold jewelry at local markets and craft shows. I would spend almost every weekend at either the Eugene Saturday Market with my mom or at the Portland Market with my dad as they did their best to make a living and raise 4 children. I would sleep in a makeshift bed under the table. Occasionally someone would drop something and it would bounce under table and as they pulled up the tablecloth there would be a little hand giving sticking up giving them the ring back. But it was a fun childhood and my parenets were always with us. The jewelry business was more of a way of life than a job and it continues to be that way as we raise or own two children in a similar way.

But later in high school I met my now wife April and lucky for me all she ever wanted to do was have her own business. She started working with me picking up markets where we could and traveling during the summer to some arts and craft shows. It was a lot of fun. After high school I got a degree in History and April in English from Universtity of Oregon and then we went right into making and selling jewelry full time.

We are constantly striving to come up with new designs. It is really fun to make new pieces and have people enjoy them. It is our goal to make durable and functional jewelry that is unique and attractive.

We use bronze, copper, nickel silver, sterling silver, and aluminum in our jewelry and ornaments. We enjoy experimenting with shapes, textures, and different mixtures of metals. I hand cut the metal to create various shapes, sizes, and lengths. I use an oxy-acetylene torch to braze the different pieces of bronze, copper and silver together. I use pliers, hammers, mandrels and a drill to refine the jewelry and ornaments.

We of course sell our work here on Etsy, but you can also find us at arts and crafts festivals and galleries throughout the Northwest.
