COOL JEWELRY MADE FROM PRECIOUS MATERIALS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE UNAFRAID TO GO BEYOND >

 

An apse is the shape of a threshold or arch. It's a sacred space in a cathedral that calls you to look upward. It's an invitation to enter a new phase or explore a reality beyond your own.

Jewelry documents the thresholds we pass through and the moments that expand our breadth of view. It commemorates phases of life where we connected with a new part of ourselves or encountered a new facet of the world around us. It makes our becoming process physical and precious.

Apse jewelry is all sustainably handcrafted-to-order with precious metals and gemstones and is designed to accompany you as you explore your inner universe, your outer world and discover the infinite ways we are all connected.

With each apse you venture beyond, we believe you'll find a sign of life that inspires you to create something new, go deeper with someone meaningful or celebrate a future that is mysterious and in motion. We hope you leverage the act of putting on apse jewelry as a daily creative way to connect you to who you've been, where you belong in the world and the mystery of who you are on the other side of this version of yourself. 

 

apse was established in 2016 by wife and husband, Hayley Boyd and Jarod Faw.

As artists with backgrounds in sculpture and printmaking, we created apse to make honest self-expression simple so that your becoming process might be a more transparent one.

From start to finish, we individually handcraft all apse jewelry in our Pacific Northwest studio using only genuine precious metals and gemstones. We design all our pieces with a genderless twist because we believe artfully honoring your process should be an expansive, second nature activity.

xo, Hayley and Jarod
