“Jewelry is about feeling beautiful. It is about celebrating the intimate relationship between ornament and the body. My work honors this by being artistic and sculptural while remaining highly wearable. It is not about trends. Fashions change but good design will endure for lifetimes.” -Shaya Durbin
With an aesthetic both urban and organic, jewelry by Shaya Durbin exemplifies classic fine-craft with delicacy and presence. Her background in fine art pushes her work beyond the traditional in a manner that is fresh, modern, and timeless. As an artisan jeweler, all work is designed and crafted independently in her Berkeley studio from ethically sourced gems and recycled metals. Her attention to detail and thoughtful design is evident in each piece. For custom and bridal this means tailored to you and above the standard of the ordinary.
Born in Oakland and raised in the Sierra foothills, Shaya has received formal education in Maine, Italy and Chicago. She is a second-generation jeweler from a long line of writers and artists.
