California Native Jewelry
About Jenice’s work: “I create handmade and naturally dyed jewelry in my Berkeley studio. I use recycled silver and source ethical stones as much as possible. I’ve recently added a small collection of home goods, handmade copper spoons and bowls.
Very little of my work is not handmade. While I use beads and a few clasps that are not made by me I do make my own settings, ear wires and posts. I naturally dye silk and local cotton thread to make ropes and tassels. I use California avocados and locally sourced rosemary, fennel, and eucalyptus for dyes.”
California Native is Jenice’s business name because she both grew up here and is an Indigenous business owner. Her culture is just as much an inspiration as is the beauty of her home state. She is proud to be part of a modern Native Made movement that celebrates our diverse and evolving art forms.
