Dawes Design is an ethically-minded, alternative fine jewelry design company which has created an exquisite and diverse line of jewelry by mixing ancient and modern styles. Sustainably beautiful bespoke fine jewelry responsibly made by Jennifer Dawes.
Jennifer Dawes launched her collection Dawes Design in 2000 and has since evolved to become one of the main proponents of sustainably responsible jewelry while also creating pieces that are magical to wear. Each piece combines her love of ancient civilizations with what is happening right now in culture and design and is hand-made, fabricated and finished at her studio in rural Sonoma County, California. Dawes explains, “I try to let the material speak for itself. I strip the designs back to their essential components and in doing this they become very feminine, subtle and organic. I have built a consumer base that resonates with the simplicity of my work and are able to combine and collect styles from my different lines which express their own individual tastes, desires and lifestyles.”
The jewelry of Dawes Design is crafted from precious metals and uniquely beautiful stones. It borrows from ancient and modern motifs, which give it a timeless, yet up to the minute presence. Our work is centered around the creation of beauty. Many of our customers seek us out to create the perfect talisman for their special occasion, wedding or otherwise. Dawes Design is continually sourcing beautiful materials from around the world, but is always conscious of their provenance. We strive to use as few resources as possible in our production process. You can find our work on our website www.dawes-design.com or at fine galleries across the country.
Besides using recycled gold and ethically mined stones whenever possible, Dawes Design strives for mindfulness in our production process, a win-win result for all of the relationships we have, and above all, to create timeless, lasting beauty for the world.
