Welcome! I am a jewelry artist living and working in Seattle, and want to thank you for stopping by my site. A little about me: I began my artist career working with etching, designing original etchings that I then made real by roll printing. However, while my etchings were popular and business was doing well, I harbored a secret… I was a hidden metalsmith by night. And I do mean by night! I ran my business during the day, and after I was done with “work,” (or at least after I returned home from my shared workspace, instead of plopping down in front of the TV, I’d get out my tools and begin crafting and hammering together small rings and pendants. (I’m sure my neighbors LOVED me, but – thankfully and with much gratitude to them, no one ever complained!)
At first, my jewelry-making was regulated to small gifts for family and friends, but soon I had more and more friends asking me for custom pieces. A ring for a girlfriend, earrings for a parent, a necklace for a wedding. And I loved it! Creating jewelry was much more tactile than what I was doing at “my job,” and I loved the feeling I got from creating a piece, and actually shaping it from beginning to end.
One day, a friend asked, “Why don’t you do this for a living?” And I thought, “Yeah, why don’t I?” And that’s how I formed Vesper Jewelry. Now my night hobby is my day job, and I couldn’t be happier! I love creating rings and jewelry for all sorts of occasions, and hope you love my work too. I’m currently in the midst of creating a batch of rings for casual wear, and another—more formal line—perfect for engagements and weddings. My particular favorite is a new line of tanzanite engagement rings I’m working on. I received a good deal on some beautiful tanzanite gemstones at the beginning of the year, and it inspired me to create a limited edition, special line of solely tanzanite jewelry. I hope you enjoy my site – and if you like what you see, please stop by again as my collection is being constantly updated as I create new pieces and move through inventory!
