Ashley Woods of Black Crystals Jewelry made in Portland, Oregon

SHOPPING HANDMADE  

When buying a new piece of jewelry, you not only want something that’s going to look wonderful, but you also want to be assured that it’s not going to fall apart in a week. As a self-taught jewelry designer, I focus on providing quality materials & creations that will make you feel put-together as soon as you put it on! I believe wearing jewelry should always be fun and something that you don’t have to think twice about when you head out the door. 

By shopping handmade, you’re not only supporting my small business but you’re showing you care about the art community, growing the economy and having a personal experience that you likely wouldn’t find in a large corporate store. So, from me to you, I want to say thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at my creations, I sure hope you find something you love!

P.S.

If you end up purchasing a Black Crystals jewelry piece and find you can’t stop looking at your beautiful self wearing it, please be sure to snap a quick picture and tag me on social media, I’d love to see it! You can find me at: @BlackCrystals on Instagram or on Facebook here

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Black Crystals began in 2010 while I was finishing up my degree in Anthropology. I’ve always been drawn to the styles and aesthetics of how humans all over the world express themselves, and I still think that’s what influences me today when creating jewelry. Geometric patterns and colorful minerals are what I base most my work on. When looking for inspiration, I turn to the outdoors of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, or read an interesting fantasy book. I currently reside in Washington with my dog and kitties!
