Electroform jeweler Jessica Kramer hails from Nebraska, and is a self-taught mixed-metal artist with a background in metal fabrication and blacksmithing. Jessica developed Hawkhouse in 2012 as a creative outlet during her first winter nestled in Aquinnah.

Jessica creates her unique pieces through electroforming, a metal-forming process which can take between eight and 24 hours. Each piece of jewelry is made with the intention to connect its wearer with the wonders of the natural world, and is made from start to finish on the Island, using a wide variety of raw minerals — many of which are local, American, or ethically sourced. Nature is Jessica’s ultimate inspiration, and shines in every piece. The Hawkhouse product line includes necklaces, bracelets, and rings made of precious metals and gemstones.

Hawkhouse is sold at Citrine and Driftwood, along with 100 other stores across the country. Items can also be purchased online at hawkhouse.net. Prices range from $45 to $100. thelittlebird@hawkhouse.net.
