we’re so excited to introduce you to our new favorite jewelry designer – jessica seaton! here’s the story of jessica, how we found her, and why we love her work.
one fateful day, we were on a shopping trip in venice, CA when we went into a cute little boutique. we stumbled upon some of jessica’s brass & bones collection, and instantly fell in love. jessica happened to be in that very boutique when we were shopping…and the rest is history. she showed us some more of her collection and we knew we had to feature her in our boutique!
jessica, originally a fellow east coast girl who is now living on the west coast, moved to los angeles to pursue a career as a makeup artist. she took up sculpture as her art form, which in turn led her to jewelry design. her current collection was entirely hand sculpted using the method of ‘lost wax’. (lost-wax casting is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist’s sculpture.) in jessica’s own words, “the collection is entirely hand sculpted using the method of ‘lost wax’, which is a dying art because we live in the day and age of computer generated design and laser cutting…but i think you can feel the energy that was put into the handmade pieces, they carry the energy. i started the collection while i was on a short sabbatical in big sur, ca…finding dropped antler’s around the cabin and property i was living at…people responded to the pieces, which were bit more dramatic back then… and now we have brass and bones…the collection.”
jessica seaton currently lives in venice, CA with her cat bernadette.
