Handmade intentional jewelry, crafted through a combination of water, fire and earth. Mountainside brings a rustic aesthetic into modern times with styles that strive to be timeless, cherished pieces. Delicate yet bold, designed to ignite strength and confidence as well as femininity and grace - jewelry to be worn as both armor and amulet.  

Various styles are crafted using hammered metals, lapidary stone cutting, and the ancient process of lost wax casting. Each design intends to accent the inherent beauty of the natural materials and organic forms. Metal and stone are formed with a focus on texture, sculpture, movement, comfort and imperfection. Inspired by the stories behind symbolic shapes and imagery, the curious lore and sentimentality of objects and emblems, the past uses and mythologies surrounding gemstones and talismans. For each piece, a new story begins.


Handmade in the Santa Cruz Mountains
