Matt Mulkey and Elijah Richards

Working a serious steam punk-meets-nostalgia-meets-Americana vibe, Elijah and Matt are the two creatives behind the Atlanta design firm In God We Must

Matt Mulkey and Elijah Richards

The main material for In God We Must’s idiosyncratic jewelry? American coins: pennies, buffalo nickels, state quarters, fashioned into handsome rings, necklaces and cufflinks bent and shaped into what they call “a product of quiet excellence.” Read more about these creative geniuses >>

Little Lux/Gunner & Lux

John Petersen began collecting jewelry for his daughter Riley's dress-up box at a young age. As she grew older and selected the pieces she wanted to keep, he transformed the pieces into one-of-a-kind accessories.

But John wasn't the only one with an eye for design, Riley is also a talented designer! Together the two create as Little Lux, a division of John's Gunner & Lux. Riley puts her crafting skills to work and her dad creates playful necklaces for all ages. If your favorite necklace doesn't have a fluffy mini tassel AND a toy dinosaur, you're missing out.

Jen Cogliantry

Brooklyn-based Jen Cogliantry, of JCH, creates handmade accessories that have a clean and balanced aesthetic.

Organic, modern shapes and patterns, and a muted color palette evoke a sense of quiet endurance, with a nod to nautical and macramé knotting techniques, can be found among Jen's pieces.

Jesse Maloney

You can't put Jessee Maloney of Art School Dropout, into just one crafting category. This talented maker creates her own quilting patterns, designs fabric, as well as making jewelry; and she uses the latest technology to do it all. 

Jessee Maloney

Jessee's jewelry line reflects all these loves, offering laser-cut hexagon necklace frames paired with fussy-cut fabrics. 

Rebel Nell

Rebel Nell's mission is to employ disadvantaged women in Detroit, to educate them on financial management, life wellness and business, and to empower them to successfully transition to an independent life. How do they do that? By making one-of-a-kind jewelry from pieces of fallen graffiti.

Fallen pieces of graffiti are designed by Rebel Nell's team of designers, a group given full creative control. No one piece is ever the same. Learn more about Rebel Nell >>

Kimmy Compton

Kimmy Tolbert Compton, otherwise known as Gather Handwoven, is known in the Chicago area for her unique woven wall hangings and educational opportunities for makers of all ages.

Kimmy's love of fiber is evident in her jewelry collection, offering hand-dyed indigo accessories, from chunky necklaces to delicate wooden ring sets. 

Courtney Fischer

Upon first glance of Courtney Fischer's jewelry you might think you were looking upon a passed-down family heirloom thanks to the artist's signature antiquing that's evident across her entire line.

Hand-forged in her home studio, Courtney works primarily with copper and brass materials to create accessories that are sure to be passed onto future generations.

Marta Pia

Marta Pia doesn't begin the design process worried about what the final outcome will be. Instead, she focuses on the materials on hand. She designs jewelry, does ceramics, drawing, marbling and other odd creative projects.

Marta relies on a variety of materials for her work that she considers precious and interesting. Evident in her work, she leans toward simple shapes in her designs and rich color palettes.

Teresa Robinson

Covet-worthy is one way to describe the jewelry created by Teresa Robinson of Tiro Tiro. When she was 20 years old and studying fine art at Hampshire College, she spent six months in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There, she took a jewelry class on a whim and fell in love with metalsmithing. She has launched three successful jewelry lines over the past 15 years.

Believing that beautiful objects should inspire the owner, Tiro Tiro often offers limited-run collections that frequently double as small, wearable works of art.

Libby Hopper

When it comes to designing jewelry for Goldeluxe, owner Libby Hopper creates handmade pieces that are meant for all of life's experiences, from everyday wear to classy evening outings.

Using traditional lost wax casting and metalsmithing techniques, the Detroit artist's collection is all about versatility.
