Ashley Y
Senior Designer | Seattle Studio
BFA Metalsmithing & Jewelry, Art History
Available for in-studio and virtual consultations

Ashley fell in love with jewelry at a young age while creating pieces in her high school jewelry class. She continued to pursue her love of jewelry at the University of Kansas where she graduated with a degree in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design along with a degree in Art History.

She spent the early days of her career as a designer and production manager in Kansas City for a national leader of medical-alert jewelry designs and then transitioned into custom fine jewelry when she moved to Seattle in 2016.



Ashley enjoys working with clients to explore all the options that custom jewelry offers, and helping them design a piece that will symbolize their eternal love for one another.

In her personal work, Ashley enjoys working with vitreous enamel, which offers a depth of color and texture to metal work. She brings this love of color to the custom experience by helping customers explore the beauty offered in our wide selection of colored gemstones. When she is not helping people make their jewelry dreams come true, you can find her hiking or camping in the backcountry and enjoying all the beauty that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
