Hi! I’m Angela, the one-woman show behind Brass&Pebble - which evolved from a rock collection.
I was born in Montana and raised in Wyoming, exploring the outdoors and collecting quartz from the Rocky Mountains outside of my hometown. Brass&Pebble began after I moved to Tennessee in 2014 and started making wire-wrapped pendants with some of the unique stones from my personal collection. Soon thereafter, I started teaching myself different jewelry-making and metal-smithing techniques that transformed Brass&Pebble into the finely handcrafted jewelry you see today!
Each piece of Brass&Pebble jewelry is designed and crafted by my own two hands from start to finish. I cut, form, hammer, file and drill each metal component myself. My favorite piece of equipment is my antique anvil that my husband's great-grandfather made out of old railroad track. By hammering on it's surface, I achieve the unique, delicate texture that is signature to many of my designs.
I have been an artist, maker, and DIY enthusiast for as long as I can remember. When I'm not making jewelry, I can usually be found involved in some sort of kitchen-witchery, practicing yoga, tending to my many houseplants or reading fantasy series cuddled up with my two black cats Salem and Nettle. And on May 1st, 2020, we added a new addition to the family! My daughter Cora Mae now takes up most of my time, but this little business allows me to care for her as a work-from-home-mom, and I for that I am eternally grateful!
