About

Jewelry Inspired by Travel and Culture

Travel By Sea was launched in 2014 by Reese Lee, and is based in Portland, Oregon. Originally an artist in paper art collage and acrylics, she wanted to expand her creativity into a new avenue. She also wanted a medium that would allow her to bring her travel and cultural experiences to life in a way that would be immediately translatable to people from different backgrounds, and that could be easily shared with the world--and, she decided, what would be more effective than jewelry?

Owing to how vastly different places and cultures are, she knew her jewelry line would similarly encompass a variety of processes and materials. This is why our line features pieces that are produced using different methods and materials, and why our collections have different aesthetics. In fact, each of our collections--both our regular and mini collections--is inspired by one place, a region, or an overall travel-related theme.

We hope that you not only love your Travel By Sea jewelry, but that you are inspired by the stories behind them--enough so that you finally book that trip you've been thinking about for ages, or register for the language class you've been saying you would!

    Hi! I'm Reese. I love making things, eating good food, and reading interesting nonfiction. I am also the artist behind Tea Party Animals, where chubby animals let their freak flags fly in acrylic paintings.

Welcome to our Policies Page!

CARE INFORMATION
· As each piece is handmade, please handle with care—do not bathe, swim, or soak with your Travel By Sea jewelry on.
· A lot of the metal we use is raw brass, which means that your jewelry will acquire a patina over time. This adds to the look of the piece, but should you decide you prefer it shiny, we provide a cleaning pad (see below).
· Do NOT use ketchup or any other liquid-y substance to clean your Travel By Sea jewelry (see below).
· We provide a little ProPolish pad that you can use to clean your Travel By Sea jewelry when it tarnishes. Just gently rub the piece with this pad, and watch it shine before your eyes!
· This pad lasts a long time, but when both sides turn black, just let us know and we will ship you a new one free of charge—we want you to enjoy your jewelry for years to come!
