Ashlen J
Senior Designer
DCA Graduate Gemologist

A life-long artist, Ashlen began her career in jewelry in 2006 and has since earned professional certificates from the Gemological Institute of America, the Diamond Council of America, and Harvard Business School. In 2016 she designed “The Guiding Star”, an original ring for the AGTA Spectrum Awards. She is a self-taught designer and artist who has had several art showings for her paintings throughout the Puget Sound area. Ashlen brings her creative passion to wearable works that represent the most exciting times in someone's life, incorporating special details that are specific and meaningful to them.

Born and raised in Seattle, the beauty of the Pacific Northwest serves as a major design influence for Ashlen. Her own style gravitates toward art nouveau and organic movement, celestial symbols, and elements of nature. She is fascinated with history, mythology, and lore, and finds inspiration from her Norwegian heritage.

Ashlen is a passionate traveler and adventure seeker, who has bungee jumped from a bridge in British Columbia, searched for the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland, zip-lined through the rainforests of Belize, and celebrated a special birthday by swimming with sharks. She enjoys spending time with her family, camping, hiking, and skiing, and in her free time writes, paints, and draws.
