Seaworthy Showroom & Workshop - Open by Appointment
3322 NE Wasco St, Portland, OR 97232
Designer and self-taught jeweler, Marisa Howard, finds inspiration in a variety of traditional aesthetics, from textiles to architecture. An Oregon native with small town roots, she has a connection to the Northwest landscape and way of life. Drawing on the Oregon coast in particular, to bring color and texture to her designs.
Having worked in many creative mediums throughout her life, making jewelry came about naturally but almost by accident. The original designs were born out of a love for found objects and a desire to give them new life. This eventually led to the desire to create her own unique objects. Objects that could take on their own life and story over time. This story spoke to enough people that eventually a business was born.
The designer tries to add a new skill or perspective to each collection, with the hope that the audience will stay engaged and the story will go on.
Seaworthy began as a hobby in January of 2010. In August of 2011, Marisa quit her job to focus on jewelry full time. Today, Seaworthy is a team of four. All pieces are made by hand in our Portland, Oregon studio. Our materials and findings are either made in house or are sourced from other small businesses throughout the US. We practice sustainability and recycle our materials. Buying from Seaworthy not only supports this business but a chain of other makers and suppliers that we believe in.
