New Designer: Jennifer Dawes Design

October 10, 2015 BY Alon Ben-Shoshan IN Artisan Craftsmanship

Jennifer Dawes launched her collection Jennifer Dawes Design in 2000 and has since evolved to become one of the main proponents of sustainably responsible jewelry while also creating pieces that are magical to wear. Each piece combines her love of ancient civilizations with what is happening right now in culture and design.  All her work is hand-made, fabricated and finished at her studio in rural Sonoma County, California.

Philosophy

The vision for Jennifer Dawes Design is to be the go-to jeweler for conscientious, thoughtful people who are making a difference in the world. We are committed to producing jewelry in a non-destructive way. We believe that the products we produce are a direct extension of the values we hold dear. We run our business knowing the importance of the interconnected aspects of life — business, family, ethics and values.

Team

Jennifer Dawes Design has grown from being just Jennifer Dawes to an amazing team of people. Our “Corporate culture” is more like a family. We have created an environment here that is supportive, creative, motivated, and challenges our potential on a daily basis.

Our commitment to exceptional customer service and high quality products meets our clients’ needs to connect with an artist and maker of handmade jewelry. We take seriously that our clients are making an emotional and financial investment.

Bio

Jennifer Dawes has known since the age of 18 that she wanted to be a metalsmith. The first moment she touched the material and learned how to manipulate it, she had a transcendental experience that would forever shape her. She created Jennifer Dawes Design in 2000, a life-long dream of making and producing her metal art.

Jennifer Dawes Design rose to the forefront of the green movement in jewelry in 2005, around the time she had her first child. “Becoming a mother was the most meaningful and spiritual experience I have ever known. It changed the way I perceived the future and showed me how important it was to be committed to a socially and environmentally responsible lifestyle.” Since then, Dawes only uses recycled gold and responsibly mined stones wherever possible in her work. The company prides itself on making everything locally and sourcing using sustainable businesses that use recycled products. “I want to add something to this world, not take it away.”
