Jewelry Artist Allison Silverstein began her journey as a maker 8 years ago with her first collection of jewelry sold in San Francisco. Since then, she has dabbled in blacksmithing, knitting, and curating objects from her travels. Allison’s latest jewelry collection mirrors her love of the natural world, and the places she has been. Composed of semi-precious stones, bone, wood, and antique brass charms, her collection represents the gypsy lifestyle she yearns to live, even if from her home in Oakland, California.
