ABOUT LITTLE REE JEWELRY

Little Ree Jewelry is a one-woman show.  I specialize in handcrafted sterling silver, fine silver, copper and gold jewelry, featuring high-grade semi-precious stones.

My pieces range from funky bohemian to understated elegance, and can be worn with jeans during the day or a formal dress for a night on the town.  I named my shop after my kitty daughter, Reeses Ferguson, who left me on March 22, 2015.  In my mind, she isn't gone, she's just telecommuting from heaven. 

I discovered my love of jewelry making in 2017, following a surprising corporate lay-off.   For the first time in decades, I had a lot of free time and I was absolutely climbing the walls with boredom while looking for a new day gig. I  started off beading and wire-wrapping, then graduated to metalsmithing in late 2018.   I knew I had found my heart's passion. Not to sound sappy, but each piece I make is truly created with love, and of course gorgeous gemstones and natural metals.

OWNER BIO: DESIREE FERGUSON

I'm a native San Franciscan currently living in Portland, OR.  As far back as I can remember, I have been enchanted with semi-precious stones and sterling silver jewelry - especially rich jewel tones. I remember my mother (a painter) "dragging" me around San Francisco to various arts and crafts festivals where passionate artisans plied their trade. Little did I know, I'd one day join their ranks.  I'm truly honored to call myself a metalsmith.

In my free time, I enjoy trying new restaurants, watching true crime shows, and accosting dogs on the street for smooches.  

I hope you find something you love today, but if not, please stop by often, as I am always adding new designs.
