J and I Jewelry

Handcrafted in Pennsylvania
Born in England, jewelry designer Ian Gibson has spent many years traveling the world absorbing various cultural influences. Schooled in geology and petrology, his love of rocks and fossils was transformational in his exploration of metals. Being completely self taught in the jewelry arts has led him down paths and to conclusions that have garnered his work acclaim for its freshness and originality.
Ian fabricates the various elements from raw materials by hand. Casting processes are not used. Using sterling silver as the base, the collection is developed with touches of semi precious stone, aspects of pearl, and hints of gold. An oxidizing patina is added to many pieces to embellish the hand etched details.
Ian and his wife Jessica formed the core of the company in 2000. They have since grown to a full time staff of seven. Aided by these talented local artisans, the finished work is produced in their studio in Philadelphia.View All Items By J and I Jewelry Custom Design Center
