Reeses Ferguson, Shop Namesake and Muse
Desiree Ferguson, Owner/Designer
ABOUT LITTLE REE JEWELRY
I am a one-woman online boutique specializing in semi-precious stones with sterling silver, fine silver, bronze, brass and copper findings.
My pieces range from funky bohemian to understated elegance. I love making pieces that can be worn with jeans during the day or a formal dress for a night on the town. My shop was named after my kitty daughter, Reeses Ferguson, who left me on March 22, 2015. I prefer not to think of her as departed, but rather she is telecommuting from heaven.
OWNER BIO: DESIREE FERGUSON
I am a native San Franciscan recently transplanted to lovely Portland, OR in June 2017. For the past 20+ years, I have worked primarily as a admin professional for large companies, but due to a recently layoff I discovered a passion for making my own jewelry. I would have started this business much sooner, but it's been so hard for me to decide what stays and what goes.
As far back as I can remember, I have been enchanted with semi-precious stones and sterling silver jewelry - especially rich jewel tones. I can remember my mother (a painter) "dragging" me around San Francisco to various arts and crafts festivals where passionate artisans plied their trade. For 20+ years, I was content simply being a consumer/craft supporter, but a few months of down time (layoff) forced me to channel my energy and creativity toward this new venture.
I hope you find something you love today, but if not, please stop by often as I am always adding new designs.
