Raw, earthy and modern, Jivita’s sterling silver jewelry is an exploration of functionality and beauty. Each piece is hand-fabricated, using traditional metalsmithing techniques. Sketchlike and layered, makers marks by file and hammer are left in place to create organic pieces of natural imperfection. Each piece is heavy in earthy texture and patina while made to be worn daily with comfort and ease. Unusual stones are used to create nature infused pieces that tell a unique story of California life.
