If you've ever shopped with an artisan in person, you'll find they often have an opinion about what pieces are complimentary to one another. Here in the 'By the Maker' section of our web shop you'll find curated jewelry sets by designer Jessie Morrow.
A playful collection of light weight statement pieces designed to make the most of those late summer days and wander into the crisp autumn glow to come.

Designer Jessie Morrow has created the F O U N D collection from inspiration gathered on the beaches of Orcas Island where MATERIAL WIT is based. Some of the pieces in the collection are cast from pebbles she discovered while walking along the waters edge. Other designs, hand-forged in her Eastsound studio, speak to the movement of the shoreline where the water meets the land.
MATERIAL WIT'S HIYU COLLECTION
The HIYU COLLECTION, meaning metaphor or simile in Japanese, is based on the Washington State ferry system that serves the San Juan Islands. Named from one such ferry boat, the HIYU COLLECTION reflects both the character of the steel framed ship and the nostalgic romance of the ocean. In creating this collection, designer Jessie Morrow was inspired by this juxtaposition of industry and island life. It is this place in-between that is the essence of the the HIYU COLLECTION, like deja vu or a memory and hope all in the same moment.
Utilizing a mixed metal aesthetic, the HIYU COLLECTION offers a well balanced selection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets in solid brass, bronze and sterling silver. The pieces are first carved in wax, cast in brass and sterling silver and meticulously finished with the highest quality materials. To round out the collection Jessie has included some ultra modern hand forged pieces. Staying true to a clean minimalist aesthetic, the pieces in this collection have a simplicity and functionality that make for an effortless style.

MECHANISM is Material Wit's first jewelry collection. In this fun and affordable collection, designer Jessie Morrow uses repurposed brass and steel hardware parts. Her designs remain simple and light despite the use of such industrial parts as cir clips, cotter pins and washers. Described as modern industrial jewelry, the Mechanism collection invites you to have 'a bit of grit with your glam'!

All MATERIAL WIT jewelry is designed and made in our Orcas Island studio with traditional metal smithing techniques and environmentally sound studio practices. Some of the jewelry is fabricated from metal sheet and wire while other pieces are first carved out of wax and then sent to a local foundry in Portland, OR to be cast in brass, bronze and sterling silver. The jewelry is meticulously finished in house with high quality materials.
