Isabel Jewelry is made by trying new ideas and finding stimulation in all aspects of life.
Isabel Rucker moved to Wyoming's Rocky Mountains from San Francisco in 2003 where she lives in a small town and runs her jewelry business. She hand-makes her jewelry of 100% recycled sterling silver and gold. Interested in keeping her jewelry fresh, she avoids big production lines, instead concentrating on one-of-a-kind, small-run and custom jewelry designs.
The Rocky Mountains provides a wonderful natural inspiration for Isabel's artwork. She spends her summers backpacking and camping and her winters cross-country skiing. Being close to nature continually feeds her creativity and desire to be environmentally-friendly.
About the recycled metals Isabel jewelry uses a precious metals mill that specializes in using only Earth’s existing metal supply, meaning they do not buy metals from mining companies. When it is necessary to obtain metals from other sources, they buy metal from other earth-friendly refineries that only use recycled metal. They require any secondary refinery to provide in writing, full disclosure of their metal sources.
