Designers Zoe Cope and Ashley Lagasse met while studying metalsmithing, jewelry design, and casting in San Francisco. A shared devotion to craftsmanship led them to found Birds N Bones Jewelry in 2013. Pairing Ashley’s background in biology and sculpture with Zoe’s in creative direction and mysticism, they create pieces that captures both the scientific and the transcendent aspects of the natural world.
ABOUT BIRDS N BONES
Where the Dark and the Beautiful Collide
Consider our pieces to be the special elements in your jewelry arsenal. The ones you wear to feel powerful, to feel strong, to feel magical, to feel mystical. Each design was chosen and created by us because we felt an affinity for the animal, and then went the next step further to fabricate/manipulate it to work with the human form. Our pieces aren’t just for adornment, they are created to fit seamlessly into your life be it at work, getting coffee, making art, traveling, or even casting spells. We are influenced by the darker side of the life cycle, geology, gemology, astrology, mythology (lots of ologies), botany, alchemy, and Mother Nature herself. Each piece is handcrafted in our studios, Zoe’s in Portland Oregon and Ashley’s in Brooklyn New York.
Source items that speak to who you are. Let our pieces declare for you.
We donate a portion of our monthly sales to different nature and animal conservation programs.
