I started my first jewelry business in 5th grade, making stretchy crystal bracelets. I have always had a desire to create and work with my hands, and that small venture opened my eyes to the possibilities of a creative career. I have made jewelry ever since and always found immense satisfaction in being able to make something that brings a smile to the wearer. I started STRAY in 2017 to share the pieces I was creating for myself with others. STRAY uses mixed metals and natural gemstones to create magical works of art with a tough yet feminine feel. Each piece is handmade in my studio in Portland, Oregon.
