is an independent jeweler based in Philadelphia. After graduating from Brooklyn's Pratt Institute with a degree in Fine Arts Metalsmithing in 2010, she went on to design commercial fashion jewelry on a freelance basis for several major companies, a sharp contrast to her studio based training. Merging these two worlds, her personal collection, established in 2012, strives to provide finely crafted pieces that reference the past but remain endlessly modern. She creates jewelry through her belief that the daily, visceral ritual of personal adornment can foster an empowering self-appreciation, and therefore personal growth.
All pieces feature 100% recycled metals and natural, quality sourced gemstones with ethical origins and GIA certifications whenever applicable. Most gemstones used within the collections are custom cut, allowing for direct rough sourcing through trusted vendors. Each piece is handmade by Gray in her studio and finished in the NYC jewelry district by the remarkable vendors she has developed personal relationships with over the past decade.
Committed to a low impact on the environment, each piece is made to order, using as little chemical and material waste as possible.
