All Black Fawn Jewelry pieces are handcrafted in Portland, Oregon by owner, designer, and goldsmith Alicia Bucks.
Each piece is a labor of love, meticulously brought into existence over the course of many hours. All metal work is done by hand by Alicia, starting from sheet and wire, using traditional fabrication techniques, or hand sculpted from hard wax and cast using lost wax casting, an ancient process dating back over 6,000 years. After fabrication/casting is complete Alicia brings each piece to life by applying finishing touches like keum-boo, bead-setting, and traditional hand-push engraving.
Alicia takes pride in using only high quality genuine materials in her jewelry. All pieces are crafted with Fine/Sterling Silver and solid Gold, which is sourced in the USA, and authentic gemstones cut by reputable lapidary artists or by Alicia herself. Environmentally sustainable and ethical practices are top priorities in the materials selection process. 100% of Diamonds used in Black Fawn Jewelry are Conflict-Free. For other gems, American-mined and cut stones are used whenever possible, and are typically purchased directly from the miner or lapidary artist, which supports their small family operations and helps to ensure fair pay and safe work environments for miners & stone cutters.
Black Fawn Jewelry strives to create heirloom quality pieces that are built to last, using beautiful and unique natural materials that will only increase in value and rarity over time.
