Note from shop owner Hi there. Welcome to The Roving! I'm temporarily closing the shop for a few weeks in order to get married! I'll re-open after the honeymoon, and once life quiets down a little bit. I expect this shop to be back up and running at the end of October.

Thanks so much for your support :)

Best wishes,
Kaitlyn

Jewelry by Kaitlyn Usher: Statement-making jewelry for free-thinkers and self-starters. Always inspired by the city that never sleeps.

The Roving is for curious wanderers. It was born out of dreams in the city that never sleeps. Inspired by shadows in the glow of the city light, The Roving is statement making jewelry, handmade in New York City. Smoke, shadows, street art, and skyscrapers inspire my thinking, bringing a modern edge to a classic design.

My name is Kaitlyn, and I’m the brains behind The Roving. I first started designing jewelry when I was eight, using it as a way to make friends in elementary school. Since then, I’ve refined my style by studying fashion design at Philadelphia University and FIT, and working in technical design in NYC. The Roving started as a quest to solve a problem. I wanted jewelry that was unique and eye catching, but that was also easy enough to wear daily, regardless of the outfit. I pieced together odds and ends from old necklaces, and from that my idea was born. I now work with nickel-free chain, leather, and neon-colored thread to create my designs. I make each piece by hand in my itty-bitty NYC apartment, usually while binge-watching Netflix, and long after my roommates have gone to bed. I put my heart into my designs, and I hope you will love them as much as I do.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All of the chain I use is brass (unless otherwise noted), and will inevitably tarnish with time. To slow that process, keep your jewelry out of water, and away from chemicals and oils.

Custom and personalized orders

Don't see what you're looking for? Need a different size or maybe a different color? Feel free to message me about making something custom! I am happy to oblige.

Gift wrapping and packaging

The Roving jewelry is neatly packaged in white waxed paper bags and comes tied up with a black and white bakers' twine bow. Each order also includes a business card, an "About Me" postcard, and a custom designed "Let's Be Adventurers" postcard to hang on your fridge :) This package of goodies is then mailed out in a yellow craft paper padded envelope (about 9" x 6" in size). If you're ordering this as a gift, please let me know if you want a custom message included in the package. I'd be happy to include it.
