Metalsmithing has captured the heart and hands of Chicago artist Lindsay Lewis for over 15 years. Drawing inspiration from her home in Chicago and travels on the west coast, Lindsay's minimal yet interesting work celebrates independence from expectations. To her, each creation is a work of art and soul only made more beautiful by the brilliant women who wear them. She hopes they serve as a reminder of, and connection to, the extraordinary lives women forge every day. Lindsay's handmade pieces are made of simple geometric shapes in interesting combinations to create jewelry that's both wearable and unique.

Born from a single piece of wood, Sophie Monet is a line of handmade jewelry and accessories, lovingly made in Venice, California. Designed by Sophie Monet Okulick, the collection is a reflection of her life spent around wood, sitting with her dad, sculptor John Okulick, in his studio, and earnestly soaking up her surroundings. An affinity for the material’s endless design options and a desire to be mindful of sustainability led Okulick to create her entire first collection, cut and crafted of wood. Her newest collection combines a more modern aesthetic with her signature natural materials.
