Favor Jewelry

Favor Jewelry
Favor is composed of thoughtfully designed jewelry that will be relevant and beautiful for years to come. The details are as important as the object, from the care that they put into making the perfect curve, to their high quality materials that feel better and last longer. The collections and individual pieces are designed to compliment one another. The simplicity and clean lines mean they can be added to an existing wardrobe easily, stand on their own as thoughtfully chosen pieces, or collected and added to over the years. Regardless of how these pieces are styled, Favor is made to be worn and loved.

They fabricate all of their jewelry by hand in our Portland, Oregon, studio using small-scale metalsmithing techniques. This means every piece is hand cut, shaped, soldered, polished, and assembled by one of their makers. Right now, that means Monika, Jade, Jess, or Brie made your jewelry. It also means that they know exactly what materials are used and how they are used. They recycle 100% of our scrap metal, they use non-toxic chemicals, and their old tools are donated to a local arts charity. 

They use gold fill because it has the longevity of 14k gold, without the environmental harm associated from mining new gold. They use 100% recycled silver and brass for the same reason. They don't plate their metals because that process produces toxic chemicals that are impossible to dispose of safely. They choose their stones thoughtfully and often select lab-grown and responsibly-mined gems, so you can know the end result of your dollar is supporting sustainability. They fabricate by hand and in their studio because they can employ local makers and ensure a great product by producing all of their pieces one at a time, in the same location, by the same set of hands.

Monika Reed, the designer, began making jewelry over a decade ago and has been at it ever since. She finds inspiration in the way shadows move, stillness, and the elusive perfect curve. When she's not making jewelry, she is living vicariously through travel writers or hiking in the forests around Portland, Oregon.
