Cult Following: HAWKHOUSE


What makes HAWKHOUSE stand out from the crowd in the highly competitive world of handmade jewellery? That's difficult to put into words as there's a certain magic at play here, a rawness and connectedness to nature which has attracted a huge following of HAWKHOUSE fans and collectors accross the world.

The lack of polished symettry makes way for a visceral, ancient appeal which draws you in...you can imagine unearthing HAWKHOUSE jewels from the forest floor, dusting off the dirt and stacking the rings on your fingers in awe.

The raw gems are queen in Jessica's creations, dictating the shape of the setting rather than the other way around. Why mess with nature's randomly beautiful shapes when you can embrace and showcase them? Jessica weaves science into the mix here, her electroforming technique means that each setting flows effortlessly around its stone. I'm particulary obsessed with Jessica's Australian opal rings, if these look familiar it might be because these were recently spotted and picked up by Free People!

And of course there is also a story of love and adventure behind HAWKHOUSE. The following is borrowed from Jessica's about page:

"Wild woman falls in love with island boy and signs up for ETSY!"

"Jessica Kramer hails from Lincoln, Nebraska and is a self taught mixed metal artist. Since leaving the land of Lincoln she has traveled 6 of the 7 continents of the world and gathered gems, minerals and inspiration throughout her travels. She lived in the Bay area, California for nearly 5 years working in metal fabrication and blacksmithing. She also worked in Event Production with the awe inspiring company Obscura Digital. She left California in 2012. Driving her cat and belongings to Martha’s Vineyard to waitress during the tourist filled summer season, ended up meeting the love of her life. She has rarely left the island and his side, since. HAWKHOUSE emerged as a creative outlet for Jessica to channel all of her artistic musings in the slow and frigid winter months on the island. Her inspirations come from nature and science and her work reflects this."

Each piece is handcrafted and shipped worldwide from Jessica's tiny island studio on Martha's Vineyard. It comes lovingly presented in hand-stamped, earth conscious packaging. Jessica's years spent perfecting her craft mean that HAWKHOUSE is the real deal in terms of design, quality and five star customer service - please beware of imitations.
