Jewelry Made for the Outdoors
A pioneer in the “active jewelry” category, the idea for Bronwen Jewelry began when its founder was instructing backcountry expeditions for Outward Bound. She recognized a need and desire for jewelry that was strong enough to withstand the rigors of the outdoors but still delicate enough to feel sexy. Twelve years later in 2008, she launched the Bronwen Jewelry brand at the Outdoor Retailer show. Since then, the artisan brand has been steadily and organically growing and she and her talented team work happily out of their sunny and charming studio in downtown Bend above the corner of Bond St. and Minnesota. Bronwen Jewelry embodies the spirit of adventure and lifestyle of travel and is durable, innovative and gorgeous…a direct reflection of its very loyal collectors. Bronwen believes that it is the right choice to handcraft their jewelry in the USA using fairly traded artisan materials that support local economies. They believe that environmental and social equity is not a marketing strategy but rather a responsibility of conducting business on this planet. They welcome their customers to drop by the studio, but don’t be surprised if they don’t answer the door! When things get too crazy around the office, they may close up shop and head for Mt. Bachelor or the Deschutes River for a few hours.
