WHO WE ARE
Pieces of Jayde was founded in 2010 when the crystals and stones I was wire wrapping for myself caught the attention of my coworkers and friends. Soon, I was making jewelry for the people around me, and after two years of skill building, I did my first market!
Today, you can find Pieces of Jayde at shows and festivals throughout the Midwest (well, I will be again when the world returns to normal, hopefully!) as well as on Etsy.
WHAT WE DO
I am primarily an electrosmith, using the elements of air, water, electricity (fire) and earth (copper) to create my unique pieces. I also incorporate wire wrapping into some of my designs.
Sustainability is important to me. I incorporate found objects frequently in my work. Any animal parts used are ethically sourced and cruelty-free, either found on hikes or gifted to me from others doing the same.
I'm Jayde, founder and creator of Pieces of Jayde Elemental Jewelry. I began making wearable art in 2010 with the inspiration to connect people with nature using jewelry as my medium.
My husband Mike is my steadfast partner for the business and the maker of ring shanks, bracelet cuffs and all my show booth displays. I could not do what I do without his support and encouragement!
Our house is located in Chesterton, in the Indiana Dunes, one of the loveliest places on earth! We are surrounded by nature in all her glorious aspects, from the mighty Lake Michigan just to our north to the old-growth forest in which our house is situated. I just have to walk outside to be inspired every day.
Each piece of jewelry is carefully handcrafted with the hope that by wearing it, you will feel the positive intentions infused into every piece
My work is crafted from minerals, metals and a wee bit of magick!
